Mystery electrical connector
I had the trim out of the cockpit stowage compartment with the battery in it today. While I was delving around in there I spotted a yellow female connector with two orange wires not connected to anything - pic below. Can't see anything obvious for it to connect to. Anyone know what it is before I start trawling through wiring diagrams? Car is a 1998 phase 1 spider.
As far as I know the only electrical thing not working is the lighter socket, although the airbag light doesn't come on at start up (I suspect that the wiring is connected but the light is blanked inside the instrument panel, seems to be a common bodge on 916s).
On the plus side I did discover the missing battery cover trim stuffed down the nearside rear wing panel!
