Sorry I do not have a picture yet, but I will get on as soon I get underneath the car again, but here's a description for now. It is a flat connector, probably 2 pronged. The other plug, it is mated to, probably has two tangs on it like a fuse, or something similar. The connector is located on the front side of the engine near the AC compressor. I already have two plugs in the AC compressor, and do not see a spot for this plug on the compressor. It is not the plug that connects at the deck lid. That one is already accounted for. Any ideas?

Edit: 86 GT, stock 2.8 motor.

Sounds like the oxygen sensor connecter. The reason it is short from the harness is because the oxygen sensor itself has wires about 8-10" long to reach it.

Nope, the oxygen sensor is locked and loaded. Thanks for playing.

Sounds like it is the connector the AC clutch. It is a flat 2 prong connector that attaches right behind the belt on the front of the compressor.

Could be that too, that one is more flat and plugs into the front of the compressor on the bottom.

One is black and one is dk green? AC compressor clutch.

It most likely has a diode hanging between the two terminals on the back side and that is covered with nasty black duct type tape.

I think we have a winner. I will still have to look, but I did not check the belt side of the compressor. I will update when I look at it tomorrow. I'm already cleaned up for the day, and to be honest I just don't feel like looking at it right now.

That's it! Pluses all around, except for you phonedawg. You already have one.

Does it matter which way it is plugged in? I'm thinking no, or they would have made it with a connector that only allows one way to plug it in.
