Hi All,
Need some help on determining where these wires are for. Took the dash out to replace heater n AC core n noticed these wires didn’t have another connection wire. One picture has a yellow circle n the other had a white circle to indicate the wires in question. I purchased the car like that. Some kid reworked the car n cut wires everywhere. Might need help later on on installing an aftermarket radio.
Thanks for all your support on this build!!!

First, what year is your car? Second, does it have a radio now?

You'll need a wiring diagram for your particular year. You might be able to find one online without paying. From there, trace the color and approximate location and you should have your answer.

Both pictures look like they are circling the same thing.

WHat year is the car? The wiring changed over the years. I beleive I know what they are, but there are too many variables to make guesses. Can you get a more close up pic of the two plugs in question and year of car?

Plug shape looks like Air Bag Module.

Hi All, Looks like the connectors are totally different than the radio connectors. I have more pictures. I tried some of the radio connectors I purchased and they are different. Some one mentioned crash sensor but could not find a sensor that ti would go connected to.

:bang: Hello McFly ...

Have you even read the posts above. The plugs are for the Air Bag Module (or component in the system). Why are you looking at radio plugs. Yes the module is not there because people like to remove these things.

If you are not putting a component back in, ignore it and forget about it and move on.

Used unfortunately is the only source, and they are an item that tends to fail so it's a gamble.

They can be repaired, if you are electronics savvy. I do not know anyone that repairs them
