Howdy! Can anyone help me identify the (middle) unused factory wire end/plug? It comes out of the loom where the front/main horn wire is. The horn wire is the long black wire snaking up in front of the radiator. Thank you!

I know the large one on the right is the thermister for the ambient temperature read out. I'm not sure mine has the third wire (grey on the left) but there are much more knowledgeable members here then I.

I should’ve been more specific in my original post - the middle wire is what I’m trying to figure out. Thank you!

On the wiring diagrams it is labelled F63 and is a 2 wire junction connector - part of the LH headlight wiring for Halogen headlamps with daytime running lamps

@don1952 This is beyond helpful! What can I “do” with this wire? Add daytime running lamps? Thank you!

Am not certain - is it not already equiped with DRL's ??

Here is the complete page
539540


You'll find the equivalent RH joint connector (F62) over near the RH headlamp

539541


Possibly used for controlling/powering these??

I think they are all prewired for it, as in many countries DLRs are required by law, whereas I don't think they are in the US.

my DRLs are the high beams (at some lower wattage i believe). based on what i read i thought there was extensive wiring needed for the "JDM" DRLs - it would be great if they were plug and play.

has anyone on the forum successfully used these wires for anything else?

would something like this plug directly into those un-used wires?
