: Perplexed. Can't figure out what this 1 connector goes to

07-22-10, 08:34 PM
Almost finished with my engine. Reinstalling it into car. I have 1 connector that doesn't seem to go to anything. It's a rather large connector. Rectangular grey. Maybe 20ish pins. Sits below coolant crossover and intake. Have a pic. Will upload when home. Hope someone can help. Maybe I'm missing something. Not a long reach. Sits below shifter box on tranny

I think I was able to attach.

Its a little hard to see, but does it have black wires running out of the other side of it, it probably is a grounding point, allthough its hard to tell.

You know what. I think it did. And I think I remember that now. I remember looking at that and thinking wow. Strange ground all in one plug. LOL. I'll look at that first thing tomorrow. Thanks!!

that ground it grounds near the coolant temp sensor on the rear bank. I had to call AAA one time because that came loose and I didnt know. it wouldnt let my car start.

Yeah. I grounded it somewhere around there but don't think it's getting a good connection. My car doesn't seem to want to start sometimes, but then I can start it right up by jumping the solonoid. I'm thinking that this is the culprit.
