Finding a home for an "unknown" connector 03AstroAWD

Finding a home for an "unknown" connector 03AstroAWD

Postby Plainsman79 [OP] » April 13th 2015, 11:28pm

Hey,

Put a new alternator in my 2003 Astro AWD. Now I find a connector unhooked (that I dont remember unhooking) in the front right, and the end of the wiring harness where it ends up by the A/C condenser. One connector goes to the condensor, this one has one light/grey-black stripe and one black wire. Try as I can I cannot find a home for it! Also cannot find a wiring diagram for the van, have a Haynes from the library, but it's too general in the wiring diagrams.

Thanks for any/all help.

If you dont have rear A/C or heat that connector is probly not used , it might have been there all along , same thing s been ask a few times , it may not be the case for you tho , so yeah post a pic someone will let you know for sure.

I'm not so sure you're identifying the AC parts correctly, so I ask for the pic. Condenser is attached to the front of the radiator, evaporator up near the passenger firewall, accumulator is attached to the evaporator. So what is it near again?
