Default Mystery afoot- identify this part

I found this bit in the driveway where I park my 04 GT. Can anyone identify where it might go? It was dry (no oil on it). It's square with a round spring in the back end, and a round rubber pad on the front. I've been under the car and can't find it's obvious home or any other part that would qualify as the donor. Any help appreciated, of course!

can you post a picture of the front and back? games like this are fun

it could be a bulb holder, a switch, part of an emission solenoid, part of something that plugs into the cigarette lighter socket, etc.

i would ASSume it is not from your car. more likely part of something that either hitched a ride with you or was run over on the street and flew away. things with springs always fly farther than you'd think. you're neighbor was probably looking for that for hours!

That's got "Fiendish Thingy" written all over it... (you can check with the UV lite)

It's possibly a battery retainer for a garden light or flashlight keychain or some kids toy which lights up.

Thanks all- I appreciate the replies and ideas. I should say this is the second one of this part I found. I found an identical piece last year in the same place under the car. Please see the additional attached photos for different angles. Maybe it's not from my car, but the coincidence is concerning.
