Any guesses on what this goes to?

While hunting down issues from my other thread I can across a stray wire that wasn't connected to anything. It comes from under the cowling forward of the windshield, and was running down the top of my fender, tucked between the PDC and the battery. I assume its not that important, just want to know what it goes to. I cant find any female 2 pin connectors that look lonely.

That's the plug for the under hood light and the whole light receptacle is missing. You can still see the plastic clip on the underside of the hood which holds that wire along w/the screw hole/larger hole the back of the light is recessed in. You can pick one up at the jy but I bought one at the dealer last year and it wasn't all that pricey.

Do you remember a ballpark price for that unit? I need a new one myself.

Thanks, and I'm pretty darn familiar w/that plug since often unplug it every time I work on my 96 ZJ with the hood up/sun up so I don't wear my battery down.

BTW 96ZJNE, the OE part # for the whole under hood light receptacle/assembly is 05093195AA and it takes a 1003 lamp/bulb. It's an exact fit for a 1996 but I don't know if it will fit a 1969 ZJ? In other words you may want to flip the last 2 numbers in your profile.

Edit: Believe I paid about $22 for it but may end up being right around $25 total.

I took out my underhood light and wired in a normal power outlet like you have in your house. Then I took an old desk lamp, cut up the housing a bit, and mounted a halogen fog lamp on it. Then i wired the fog lamp to the the original lamp cord. i keep it under the back seat and just plug it in when I need it. MUCH brighter than the factory light and you can aim it right where you need it. The lamp i used had a clamp on it so you can clamp it pretty much anywhere too.

Do you have a pic of that? Sounds pretty darn handy.

Here's a photo of the underhood light w/packaging and the bulbs. Doesn't come with the sheet metal screw which goes through the shade/hood on the lamp itself. You'll just have to find one which is a little larger than the hole on the underside of the hood and use a small washer.

seems like a lot of work when a trouble light only costs a few bucks.

I have explained this before... I am a time traveler and went back to 1969 with instructions to build a ZJ. The production year is technically correct!

(edit) Fixed the year.
