hi there the unit you are describing at the rear of the light unit is called a charcoal canister or evap canister its purpose is to take out the fumes from the engine intake and clean them before emitting them to atmosphere! this should only oppperate when all conditions are correct normally when the car is being driven! sounds more like you have an issue with the engine wiring loom common fault! I normally replace the loom and then carry out a reprog of the computer! normally about a 250 fix
