It looks OEM but I see no connectors that shape in the 97 or 98 FSMs. What are the wire colours going into the connector? Starting to loose light here now. If I remember between rain showers tomorrow I'll have a look in my engine bay for anything similar.

I assume you mean near the starter solenoid. If so it might be the battery temp sensor & if so the actual wire colors would have been brown/yellow & pink/yellow. But after all the years the colors could look like most anything.

Battery temp connector is black and come off the loom running past the battery. I went through the connector pin out section looking for a connector that shape but didn't see anything that matched.

Looking further it could be one of the a/c pressure switches. The one in the 97 FSM is completely different looking, the ’98 looks a bit closer & the one in ’05 looks just like it. And if the a/c is an add-on anything is possible. I don’t know where the pressure switches are for the ‘97s or for an add-on unit for that matter but worth checking.

Thanks for posting findings. It must be for an alarm system which would be an add-on option.
