Can Someone Help Identify This?


Recommended Posts

I'm putting my center console back together as the previous owner tore it apart and sold me the car as is.  

While in there I noticed this wire, it is held down with a screw to the side of the heater box, the wire is not hooked up to anything, it is just dangling there... can someone help me identify what this is for?  


I've only had the car for a week, it is a 1976 2002

Get rid of it.  It's not a good place for a ground and it is the wrong color. Red is for unswitched (constant) positive power. Brown is for ground on these cars (black can be ground on other cars but if you stick with brown there will be no confusion later)

in german cars, RED is for HOT - Power


BROWN is for Ground


that wire is a poor GROUND to the PLastic Heater box ?!?!?


what is the other end of that wire connected to ?

it wasn't hooked up to anything, the cable was just sitting there loose.


It is gone now, it was definitely something the previous owner did.
