Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Hi Rob.
I think it may plug into the LSM (Light Switch Module) light module but only guess

Thanks for the reply Steve but its not the LSM as the car which has it is working fine and this is just a spare connector.

This query is also currently running on the OC for the second time without any real answer so I set about looking at all the connectors in Rave but cant find this one and am now intrigued as to what it could be.

The latest theory on the OC is that it may be connected to the Japanese export version but no one has yet come up with the definitive answer and another car with it is not a Japanese spec, but it is LHD from Cowley made for France and message centre is in French

I think I have a photo of the same connector somewhere amongst the 8000 plus photo's will try and track it down.

Well after a bit of searching I found these I think it plugs into the white lear box ?

Doesnt look like the immobiliser plug. The immobiliser plug doesnt have that sliding locking lever.

Davids right, its not the immo. It may be something like a toll card reader for Japan. That connector is used on a few things, but not with so few wires fitted.

Got it. Shift interlock unit. This locks the auto selector lever in P unless (I think) you have ignition on and your foot on the brake pedal. Certainly is required in US cars, and I guess Japan also from this.
