    Mystery connector?

    For the life of me I don't know where the connector to the right plugs into. The left is for the floor lights

    Nope I don't know if it was part of the throttle controller. Because it's next to the vitesse connectors. Maybe he unplugged that part to use for the vtc. Closed the panel back up, y'all pray for me

    You may want to rethink that request.

    Re: Mystery connector?

    Your mechanic took it apart? then gave the car back like that? Guess you'll find out what doesn't work when you start it up

    it's hard to tell from the pic, but it looks smaller than the throttle wiring harness which is wider from what I can remember. I googled vitesse throttle controller pic and one of your previous posts popped up with a picture of the connectors:

    The controller works fine, just a bit nervous driving it knowing some thing is unplugged under

    That's not part of the Vitesse. The Vitesse goes in-line and only has the single blue and yellow wires leftover.

    Yup that's what I saw dangling next to the module. Pulled the side carpet to see if anything there required a plug in, but found nothing. Just glad my car is back and normal....for now
