Hello everybody,

I'm the proud owner of a 1999 P38 4.6 HSE and, thanks to this forum, I've managed to solve a lot of issues on my car.
There is one thing though I cannot figure out, there is a connector on the front right of the car, next to the washer fluid tank (see picture), which is not connected to anything...

I'm not missing anything and I have no message on the display. Does anyone now what this connector is for?

Thanks!

Luc from the Netherlands

Do you get a bonnet open message with ignition on and bonnet open?! If not, it's the connector to the switch.
The colours of the wires into the connector would make detective work easier
Other possible 2 pin plugs in that area- fogs and wash pumps.

Thanks Orangebean for your quick reply, I just checked and you're right, I don't get a message when the bonnet is open and the motor is running. Fogs and wash pumps work fine. Thanks for clearing this!

People usually unplug them because the catch mech gets gunked up so the microswitch doesn't work correctly, leading to "bonnet open" message when it isn't. Pop the catch off and clean the gunk out, reconnect and you'll probably find it works as nature intended
