Wiring questions Help me identify these wires.

I found these wires that the PO have hooked up to a toggle switch.
These came down on the drivers side by the E Brake area. I have search everywhere looking at wiring diagrams and manuals but can't find any info.
They look factory.

Thanks



ths is the connector that was plugged in.

That is part of the OEM factory fog light switch, less switch. It plugs into another plug hanging off the headlight switch wiring harness that will have a white, black, orange and gray wire going to it. It allowed the fog lights to operate only when the headlights were on low beam only.

According to the wiring diagram, that wire should be black colored.

If you are looking to power up a radio when the key is either in the "on" or "accessory" position, there is a factory tap connection on the fuse block. It's located on the lower left corner of the fuse block and it will be marked RADIO. A simple male spade connector is all that is needed to tap into the block but you should have an inline fuse running through the same wire that will power up your radio.

I am wired up how. It was a cheap radio with no clock so i did a tempory hack job (sorry to admit) and tapped the cig light until I put something real in. This is a $30 radio just until I feel like putting a real one in.
