    Question on engine wire

    While investing for a vibrating sound coming from behind seat in engine area I discovered a electrical wire that was not plugged into anything I was hoping someone in here might know what it’s for. I have enclosed pictures of it. Also has anyone that had a vibrating sound at 5000 rpms find out what was causing it. I removed the exhaust tip because someone said they discovered that to be the culprit of there vibrating issue

    Well welcome to the forum. Need to know a bit more info, year, model, accessories, ect.

    Looks like a typical harness connector. Do you have a shop manual with schematics? Available for $100 cheaper than the Stealership at https://brpmanuals.com/

    I would have to agree that is the plug that plugs the intercooler fan in when the intercooler is installed. It appears to be out currently?

    If true, wonder how long it's been run without ?

    I fired up my car about 2 weeks ago, didn't hear the S&B Particle Separator (not that I missed that sound) traced it, found the female part of the connector just hanging there. After a brief search found the other end down by the intercooler. Snapped them back together, can't figure out how they came apart. Now have both ends zip tied together and to the rear roll bar using GripLock ties.

    Don't some models come without an intercooler? I'm sure the plug is still there anyway.

    This is true. The base models don’t come with the intercooler. I would think the plugs is still there also. Good thought.
