Unknown wire Identification

My 69 Camaro v8 with A/C has a brown wire with a small black boot ond the end just above my A/C box on the firewall it is about 16" long and I have no idea what it goes to. I was thinking it is for a hood light but it would be on the opposite side maybe? I have two nice picture of the wire if anybody would like to post them for me??

Re: Unknown wire Identification

oh, wait a minute... i looked at this earlier but it didn't click. Well, can ya say DING!
The black boot is round, but the terminal in it is a straight 1/4" female spade connector, right?
IF it comes out of the main engine harness (the wiring for the distributor, & starter) and NOT the a/c harness, it is the wire for the heater blower for cars that did not have A/C. This wire was part of all engine harnesses, and was just taped back out of harms way on A/C cars.

Re: Unknown wire Identification

The blower motor wire on a non AC car is orange. A brown wire with a black rubber circular connector coming from the drivers sdie of the car is the oil pressure idiot light connector.

Re: Unknown wire Identification

The blower motor wire is part of the engine wiring harness and was put in every car made, the A/C harness is an add on harness installed when A/C was ordered. The factory was suppossed to cut the orange wire off near the wireway on the top of the firewall tape the cut end and stick it back into the wireway. Saved having another harness made just to delete a wire.

Re: Unknown wire Identification

Now that makes sense. I guess the guy on the assembly line in charge of cutting the wire and tucking it back into the harness was asleep when my car rolled through!!
