Here’s the deal:

I’m going wheeling tomorrow and I was going through the suspension, making sure everything is tight as it’s been about 300 miles since I put a tereflex lift in (2.5”). As I was going through everything on the under carriage, I noticed that two wires with connects (2 wires to one connect and 3 to the other) we draped over the transmission, hanging on the passenger side. See attached pics. The transfer cases (I believe) breather tube was also hanging down with the wiring. These were not disconnected to install the lift. Side note: 5 days ago I had my air bag switched out at the dealership (recall).

Any ideas on what these connectors could be and where they go. I’ve been looking for their placement for about 2 hours and haven’t found anything missing a plug or any information on the internet.

Plug one: 525130

Plug two 11240

The Jeep is running fine and no check engine. I reattached the breather tube high up into the engine bay (top of fire wall where hood seals) for now, is there any possible heat issues with this?

Update: I suspect that those wires run my reverse lights and 4x4 light, as both of those are out currently.

Next question, anyone know where either plug into? I got a diagram that looks like one plugs in the rear of the transmission and on one top/passenger side. I have not found these connections as of yet.

Also any idea why these things would have gotten disconnected all together. The tranny hasn’t been dropped for over a year (clutch replacement). Could the lift be affecting it? (2.5 inch tereflex).

Those don't look like they've ever been plugged in. I'd guess they are for models with an automatic transmission and are unused on yours.
