Because I'm replacing all 3 front light sets on my '02 Silverado, I decided to go through and re tape wiring as well as adding new wire loom. I found this piece on the frame in the center of the front in the run to the passenger side.

Its cool, the dead give away is the bright yellow connector and the large red retainer. All the airbag connectors look very similar to that; it is very hard to actually disconnect the physical connection because that retainer is so hard to remove.

Yeah well my dumb ass DID have a hell of a time taking the retainer out then putting it back in.

Good thing I didn't fWONk something up.:ohnoes:

Between him and Scottyboy maybe idiots like me can go into an electrical project without accidentally activating the hidden ejector seat relay button that shoots me through the roof next time I get in the truck. :lol:
