Strange wire???

i was looking under my hood driver side by the headlight when I noticed a strange plug with purple wire. Has anyone see this? Pictures will be up tomorrow if no one knows. The wire seems to split from the headlight wire and has a oval plug .

It is for people who have remote start. If you have remote start it will plug into a sensor that can tell if the hood is open, which will disable the remote start.

Send a message via Yahoo to rob4607

I have remote start and yes that is one of the things that it is for but also if the factory alarm is armed and the hood is opened it will not let the jeep start, stupid design, I tapped it into the purple with black stripe where the drivers dash end panel comes off. Basically I tied it into the drivers door switch so no if the hood is opened the alarm and horn will go off, the other way is stupid because once they get into the engine compartment and cut the power from the battery it is open season, easy ten minute mod for added security.
