Hey there,

Anyone know what this plugs into?
Its in the right from corner of the engine bay behind the battery container.
2000 Range Rover 4.6 HSE.

Thanks,
M

Don't know where you are on the globe, however on an NAS spec?
Nothing....
Possibly in a different market? Charging leads for the alarm aux battery?

My 2001 4.6L HSE has the exact same thing. No idea what its use was. Been that way ever since I got it.

I know for GM trucks, there was a random plug in the engine bay just about that location as well, it was for an engine block heater.

I'll take a look at my truck and see if I have it too...

It is listed in RAVE as ' with ship disable' or something like that....

Even from looking in the wiring manuals, I can't decipher what it ACTUALLY does, or how it would be useful.

The connector shows as "NOT USED" in RAVE - but one wire comes from a splice in the wire from BECM to the ignition relay, and the other a splice in the wire from the engine ECU to the main engine control relay.

My guess is there was either a bridge wire, or an external box that plugged into it to disable the relays from being energised or the vehicle started in transport?

But it is a standard, unused, connector on later Thor model P38's - and can just be left to it's own devices.
