"spare" connector in engine bay

just cleaned the throttle body, etc and used some spray degreaser to try and make things look a little better under there.

please be assured - i gently rinsed the engine - no spray or pressure washer!!

however, while putting everything back together, i discovered this spare connector on the RHS under the intake manifold and near the engine bay cooling fan.

i can't find anything obvious that it has come off of - maybe it's provision for an option i don't have.

anyone got any ideas?


many thanks in advance
thanks
paul

I was under the impression that degreaser will remove some of the engines anti-corrosion protection (?)

What model year and model? It matters.

I got that wire harness haning off mine too with no where to go, tucked it well outta the way of the fan though.

I also lightly cleaned my engine bay with misted water and plenty of paper towels

I keep popping open the front hood and looking for the engine ... I just can't find it? How am I expected to clean it if I can't find it? Oh well, back cleaning the rims instead... at least those everyone can see.

Check the back hood.

That's where the golf clubs are at ... there no room for an engine with the golf clubs in there.
