Bunch of wires?
ok, most cars, all have empty connectors. all.
these are called options,
and no maker of any car, makes a unique harness for every permutation of every option, offered, and world wide.
if you really want to know, then read the FSM, it covers this.
hell it covers most things..

read it here,

you;'d get the connector pin count, and colors
then look it up in the connector sections. (they have just that )
or in the harness section, or in the schematic sections. (3 ways)
bingo,, solved, (any car)
alarm option, fog light option, endless it seems.

learn to use an FSM and be able to solve vast riddles.

Headlights on 2005 chevy avalanche went out and all fuses and light bulbs are ok. what do i do do i check the relays and which one are they?

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

How to tell when the heting coil is bad 1997 MC Jimmy

It is only bad and non functional if one you have a sweet smell inside the vehicle or see steam out the vents when the engine is hot and unexplained coolant loss. The Second the heater core can be plugged with rust, it doesn't leak buy you have no heat, this can be checked by seeing if both the hoses to the heater core under the hood at the firewall are hot, if only one gets hot then the core is likely plugged.

Where are the plugs located?

Pop the hood, and you'll see the spark plug wires going from the distributor on the passenger (right) side of the motor to each of the spark plugs. The plugs are down in the head a bit. Carefully pull out a spark plug wire by the boot (near the motor) and you'll see the plug down inside

I have a 2004 suburban Z71,,,with major electrical gremlins,,,when there is moisture in the air,,,everything goes haywire,,,the headlights flicker,,,the heat or ac fan goes from high to low,,,seat heater...

I have seen a problem like this before & the problem was at the bulkhead connector.
This is a great big plug. Most are under the master cylinder area down behind the wheel well. It's mounted on the wall right above where the brake peddle is. This plug carries in the area of 30 or more wires. It connects the inside compartment wiring to the under hood wiring.It may have been damaged or even loosened at some point to find a circuit, and then not replaced &/or sealed properly. The harness itself near the bulkhead connector may have been damaged and corrosion has worked itself into the wiring & when it gets damp enough more circuits are effected.

My 2004 Jaguar xj8 will not release both latches with the inside release. How can I get to the latch without the hood opening?

If your bonnet will not release, there is a rubber plug inside fender located up in
the wheel well under the latch. Remove the plug, stick a screwdriver up and pry the latch
back. The hood / bonnet will open.

Rear defrost won't workon cavalier

The Cavalier suffers from the infamous Purple wire problem. when you have this problem, the light comes on and timer works but there is no power at the rear elements. Cause is in the connector on driver's side, behind the carpet near hood release. Pull this carpet down and locate the Purple wire going into a green center of plug to open. Likely the contact is blackened inside, that is cause of the problem. You have two choices...clean the contacts and put plug together and defogger will work, for a while. I took the Purple wire out of the plug and soldered it to the black wire on the other side of the plug...make sure you get the right two wires. Look at the plug. The plug causes a high resistance contact and no voltage gets to rear. To prove it, disconnect one terminal at the window and measure 12Volts, connect the wire and the voltage disappears. Basic Ohm's Law. The plug contact is getting all the voltage. Don't let anyone tell you that you need a new switch, if the light/timer work. That won't fix it.

Hood release cable isn't connected to interior hood release lever

Your going to have to use vice grips or pliers. Just pull hard till you hear the hood pop open or have a friend push down on the hood so you can pull in the hood cable easier to unlock the hood latch. Good luck and keep me posted.

Where is the AIT sensor located on a 2007 Mitsubishi Raider?

The AIT sensor is located inside the large black plastic box on top of the engine. There is a 2-wire plug connector that plugs into the driver side of this box that connects the sensor wires. Mods simply remove the plug and attach the new AIT diode to the plug without plugging it back into the black box. Note: Your check engine light will stay on and not much improvement (if any) to performance. I took mine back out and restored back to stock. Don't waste your money on gadgets for the AIT.
