Last unknown plug

Any idea on where this plug goes? Its near the column harness. Car is a '70. Was a 307 auto on column, no a/c. Already found wires for clock and cig lighter. Has factory U14 gauge package.
Thanks.

Re: Last unknown plug

Could it have come out of the connector that is used for a console. It would be a black plug with a gray, white and orange wire in it. Yours may be missing the orange wire.

Re: Last unknown plug

Does it have 12 volts? Orange is typically a source for things that always require power - courtesy/dome lights, clock, etc.

Re: Last unknown plug

Even though the car came as a column shift, if someone put that gauge dash in it, it could be from the console plug in the dash harness.

Re: Last unknown plug

The only other orange wire in that area would go to the brake light switch.

Re: Last unknown plug

RealRed, you are correct, it somehow got yanked out of the console plug. Thanks!

Re: Last unknown plug

Just bend the small tab on the terminal up slightly and simply slide it back into the connector until it locks in.
