159 1.9 jtdm battery cable questioon

After replacing my original Alfa battery with a Bosch one (which is too short but that's another issue) I discovered an additional positive battery wire which is not connected to the terminals on the positive fuse connector. This cable has a tab with a small hole with a left side tab and a B on it, there is one connected that looks the same but with an A on it.

Can anyone confirm if this should be connected or not. I will get some pics once my camera is charged. Its a 159 1.9 jtdm sportwagon that's had dpf removed and egr blanked plus remap by AHM.

Have a look into the owner's manual, page 211, fig. 58 - fuse 72 and th fuses' table on the page 214 - "Additional heater (passenger compartment water heating 600W) (diesel versions) - F72".

I have also this loom with B marking and it is not connected to the battery. I can only assume that my car does not have this additional heater or the heater is only 300W and fed off the fuse F8 (pages 212 & 215 of the Owner's Manual).

Does anyone with 2.4 engine can have a look under the bonnet and check if there is this B cable is not connected?
