Default I've got this cable in the trunk...

Do you have one? It'* multi-colored and ends with a plastic connector. It looks like it'* meant for towing lights, but everything I know about my car says it doesn't have the towing package.

I'm just curious about it and have been since 1997 when I bought it.

take a pic..
it might be for trailer lights, just because it wasnt factory installed doesnt mean it didnt have a hitch and wiring done aftermarket.

Where does it come from and where does it end? How many wires are in it?

Huh. Well, I'll try to get a pic when I get it back from the transmission shop tomorrow. It looks factory installed and there isn't a hitch. I thought it was something everyone has. It'* probably 6 feet long and about as thick as my monster jumper cables.

Pics on Monday, hopefully.

This wouldn't happen to be the inflator air hose would it?

When I last looked at it it seemed to come from around the Driver side wheel well. I may be able to get a picture tonight with the girlfriend'* camera, but if I might not be able to upload until Monday, still. We're taking the car camping, see.

Sounds like someone had a system in the car and removed it when the car was traded..

I'm guessing thats not it tho...


Where is the connector located... Is it on the Passenger side of the car near the antenna? Do you have a power antenna? or fixed mast antenna?
