Don't remember, but a guess is that they may be for your vapor recovery system.May also be fuel lines but they are usually on drivers side. follow them and see where they go. Visible wiring should be color coded ...just match the wire colors and splice them together. If lines that are open are fuel lines, the high pressure one needs to have a steel line inserted, then join with pressure rubber hose and clamps. Using the steel insert prevents the plastic line from crushing when clamps are tightened. Vapor lines can just be spliced with hose and clamped, just don't go crazy with tightening...snug ,not torqued to elephant pounds.

    forgot one other possibility on passenger side "tubing" ...could also be emergency brake cable. (you need to look to see where this stuff goes) If it's brake cable, it is plastic over steel and can just be coated with silicone glue so water does not get in there.

My haeter only works on defrost and off. is there maybe a vacume problem

Look under dash and see if a cable or a vaccum hose has popped off. Actually, there are two vacuum lines to check. On is under the dash on the left (driver's side) of the transmission hump connected to an actuator. The other place is a hard plastic vacuum line that runs from the dash control, through the firewall into the engine bay. It's near the washer reservoir and continues along the passenger side fender to a vacuum canister behind the bumper near the corner (passenger side). Sometimes that hard plastic tube develops cracks.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

I have a lhd grand cherokee and ive lost positive feed to passenger side electric windows and folding door mirror checked fuses no fuse for electric windows

There is only one fuse for all power window and power mirror operation (Fuse 12 (50A) in under hood fuse panel). If the passenger side window and mirror functions are not working, and you have verified that there is no power going to the passenger door module (pin 1 of C1 connector), then there is a wiring issue in the harness.

Air conditioning is leaking on to the passenger side and keeping the rug wet. How do I find the drain hose?

Get under the passenger side of your vehicle and look for a tube coming down about the same area as where the leak is. There is a drain tube there and you can either run a long wire up there or blow in it to unplug it.

2002 pontiac grand prix gt AC only blows hot air compressor full of freon and clutch spinning good temp control actuators working corectly narrow ac tube at firewall very cold thicker ac tube at firewall...

i had same problem 2 years ago. the actuator door tube was snapped in half and i used acquarium tubing to splice together. The tube runs along the passenger front well well inside engine and meets under the battery carriage. I could not tell anything was wrong without removing the battery to get a closer look. works like a champ now.

Also: there is also an inline venturi filter that fits in the aluminum tubing on the compressor, it may be clogged. You will have to have the freon sucked out to replace the filter. Check back with me so I can help more if this doesnt solve your problem.

Your linkage is most likely bent or rusty and stuck. Get somone under the car and try shifting out of 4wd they should be able to see the linkage trying to move and help it along.

Could be the neutral safety switch. You can test it fairly easily by following the instructions on testing the continuity of the pins in the switch socket at this site
The switch is on the passenger side of the transmission, cable is about 2 feet long and can be unplugged under the hood near the passenger side of the firewall where it comes up from underneath the car. If any of the gears aren't reading continuity it may need to be replaced.
