Have you got a picture from the outside showing where it came from?

What sort of features does you car have? Anything like Auto sensing wipers?

I take it that the wires are routed under the roof lining?

Some sort of sensor would be best guess, but without knowing your cars features it's hard to say what.

As Iooi says, without knowing the spec of your vehicle it’s just guess work.
could be a sensor for a couple of different things, my first thought was a microphone for hands free calling, but looking closer this is unlikely.

That still doesn’t tell us which bits the car has added, auto dip headlights, auto wipers or something completely different.
as said above it could be something fitted by a previous owner….
Does the prt have a Kia stamp and part number??

Sadly we do not know the exact spec of every Kia produced.
So please help us. What feature does your car have such as Auto sensing wipers, internal alarm sensors etc.

I wonder if it is some sort of old aerial/antenna for something, similar to this?
I was thinking the same thing, possibly an after market DAB aerial. One cable for power and the second to send the signal to the head unit. But that it is a complete stab in the dark.

Trace the wires on that one.

The square bit in the middle looks very much like a GPS antenna to me, the other cable appears to be going to those copper traces on the circuit board ... DAB antenna?
