shift cable grommet - extra wire?

Recommended Posts

i recently replaced my shift cable - 997 424 041 00. in mid-length of the wire assembly is a rubber grommet that holds the assembly together and which fits snug into the body pass-thru. however, there is also a third wire that runs thru that body pass thru and fits into a cut out groove on the side of that grommet (you can see the hole for that 3rd wire in the parts diagram). so, what is that 3rd wire? during the DIY, i seated it properly into the grommet but did not think to chase it's length to see where it came from/where it went to. anyone know?

negative. e-brake is separate and runs thru a 2nd body pass-thru right behind the shift (and the mystery) cable assembly. i believe the mystery wire runs up to the dash, but not sure since, after entering the cabin, runs beneath the carpet under the console.

Well unless someone knows what that is if you want to know you might have to look in the transmission tunnel to see where it goes.

agreed, i'm just lazy and didnt want to take console apart again. :P FYI i'm trying to track down a TPS issue and want to rule out any crimped wires/grounding issues, etc.
