    While messing with my truck today I noticed this. [​IMG][/IMG]

    I cannot find where this thing would plug into anything and haven't noticed it until today. The only open, nearby plug has a rubber insert inside it so it's sealed off. It is connected to the yellow wire.
    Anyone know what this is, if it somehow became unplugged, and where it goes?:confused:

    Looks like it goes to whatever use to be connected to the fender, next to the yellow wire loom.

    Just don't tear apart the dash. There's probably 5 or 6 connectors under there with no "mates". It is more than likely for a system that was not installed on your truck.

    Could be ABS, could be a 4x4 component, or it could be the diagnostic port for the SRS system.

    I wouldn't worry about.
