Just curious...

I recently had a check engine light come on, not sure of the reason for that yet, but I noticed that there was something tickling my foot while I was driving around. I took a peek under the dash and found that the tickling wire was the passenger airbag switch wire. I spliced it up real nice and secured it a little better and there is no more tickling of the foot.

But...as I was poking around under the dash, I noticed two connectors to which I could not see where they were supposed to be plugged in. I was wondering if these two connectors had anything to do with the check engine light. I am trying to avoid taking it somewhere to get the codes ran because in Hawaii, nowhere does it for free, and it generally costs about $100-150 to get it ran. Anyway, I have attached pictures of the particular connectors under the dash that I am talking about. If anyone can shed some light on this, that would be sweet.

Thanks, pictures are as follows.




Also, I tried feeling around to see if they should be plugged in somewhere and had no luck. And if it helps to identify the connectors, I have a 2000 TJ Sport I6 with an M5.

Yeah dude...umm...I built it myself?

Haha, my bads. Anyway, 4.0L is more appropriate I suppose. I was trying to get y'all to believe I had a real badass Jeep.

I know for a fact that the first one has nothing to do with it, that plug is an accessory plug. (mine is hooked up to my alarm)

If it is that expensive to get codes read, why not buy a reader for ~$100 then you can check yourself.

Because I didn't know I could do that. If I did, this thread probably wouldn't exist.

And thanks for identifying the plugs.

Try the key trick but don't be surprised if it does not work, it doesn't on 99's and I think 2000's are the same way.

Well...I went to try the key trick...and the CEL was off. So...I guess I fixed it by thinking about fixing it. I disco'ed the battery for about a minute after the light went off to make sure it didn't come on again, and it didn't.
