Connection ID Help Needed...Please

Connection ID Help Needed...Please

Postby chargedbird [OP] » August 16th 2011, 2:18am

Howday all,
I have a 1996 Astro Van Vin "W" and I found this connector located by the AC/Heat Fan, in the engine compartment, its a 2 wire connector, Gray/White and Black. I have looked all around this area for the plug but I can seem to find anything. Here is pic of the connector. Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers~~~

Look at the bottom of the water bottle for the windshield washer motor.It is almost identical.It is a unused dead circuit.If your van had been chosen to be a safari it would be on the water bottle motor and the one on it now would be dead.All these vans have an extra like that.

sure it's not the wiring for the rear heat solenoid located behind the accumulator?
A temporary fix usually becomes a permanent solution, therefore it does not exist.

Well, I think one of us is right, it's a dead end connection for an option your van doesn't have. If it's for the washer, it's because you have double doors instead of dutch doors.
