Mystery electrical connector (leftover)


Recommended Posts

I replaced some vent and vacuum hoses while I was replacing the BOVs on a 2002 turbo and when I had it almost back together, there was one electrical connector left over. It is part of a 4-connector harness. It is just two wires, colors as shown in the picture. I ended up pulling things apart again trying to find the socket for the connector but I have no idea where it goes. Does anyone have any idea what it goes to and exactly where it is located?

The connector is in the 4-connector harness in the engine compartment near the throttle body - one of the connectors goes to the throttle body, one to the manifold from the intercoolers, the other I don't recall but is obvious when standing there. The mystery one must be within a radius of about 8 inches from the left of the throttle body. I color-corrected the wire colors to be realistic, so, yes, purple and red/blue.

Loren, Excellent, thank you. Of course, I had no idea where the tank vent valve was, but knowing that vent lines go into the top of the thing Porsche calls the "intermediate piece" (aka, intake plenum) downstream of the throttle body, I followed one back until I found an electrical socket facing forward where it couldn't be seen from the rear. And it plugged right in.

For others that may need to get involved with this thing, it is in the line that is attached to the rearmore of the two connectors on the left sided of the top of the intake plenum - the line takes some bends and end up going to the front of the car on the left side of the engine compartment.

Thanks again,
