98 TJ HVAC harness connects to?

hello, I did the painful jeep heater core replacement and things are not going well. There is one harness I can't seem to find where or what it connects to. It's a small round harness near the middle of the dash, coming from the main harness running along the floor of the Jeep, has a black and red wire. I think it plugs into the HVAC controls somewhere but I'm lost. I'm going on 2 weeks of this crap. I wish I would have let a service place do the heater core at this point. Now they won't touch it. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

That looks like the light socket for the shifter for the auto trans. If you have a manual then it just lays there, unused. You can test it by seeing if the red (actually orange) wire gets power when the lights are on, same as the lighting for the cluster & heating panel & lights.

Thanks for responding. Now that you mention it, the jeep fog lamp light switch won't turn on. I bet the harness is for the fog lamps, I don't see where it plugs in at the dash. Any idea? Thanks.

nevermind, it works. GLad to know I'm not crazy thinking that harness connects to something I missed. I must have stared at the dash for hours looking for anything I missed.
