What is this for?

First off I have an 08 Inlimited Rubi and this is a plug in my grill that Leeds to nothing. Has a terminating end on it. Anyone know what it's for? Towing?





Also what is this guy on the inside of the grill on the driver side?

The thingy in the last picture is the outside air temperature sensor. Normally clips on behind the grill. Engine computer uses it to make engine decision, also displays in the instrument panel. Mine broke off too. Not sure what the other is. My 08 Rubi doesn't seem to have one.

If you follow the wiring harness on the first connector back, where does it go?

How many wires, and what colors?

The colors are 2x black/ red/ yellow and green.



Then fallowing the waire harness back it goes under the battery box and into the cab at the passenger side here.



Then I kind of lose it but think it goes into this plug.

I just looked at the connection of my e-sway bar disconnect. The plug looks bigger than what you show there but I didn't unplug it to see. It is the only wire loom in that area on mine though so I would guess that is what it's for.
