Help ID'ing Plug on Forester - Never Mind-Thanks

EDIT: Engine started and no CELs, so I think it was extra.

Hi,


1998 Forester S - 5-speed

I'm reinstalling the engine and failed to label the plug circled below. I can't find its mate (it might be unused). It's on the 5-speed's bellhousing near where the 3 big, main plugs connect.



Thanks,



TD

I want to say it goes to the coolant temp sensor on the coolant crossover pipe, but I may be wrong.

The coolant temp is accounted for. Thanks for the reply.

If it was not in the wrong spot I'd say looks like the plug that sits on the alternator :shrug:

How long are the wires?

Where can they reach?

Maybe 2" from where they come out of the harness - 2 wires:white and black w/white stripe.

BUT I got everything connected and started it up no CEL, so I think it was 'extra'.

Thanks

From the wire colors and the position its possibly the AWD Lo indicator switch connection (on the transmission) for the AWD Lo indicator light.

Thanks for the reply....I was thinking UK/JDM/Aussie as they got dual-range transmissions w/the EJ-series engines - the USDM did not.
