Re: Name that plug

What color wire is it attached to? Is your parking brake indicator functional?

Parking brake wire is hooked up and eorks. The plug is tight up against the insulation to try to even pull on it to see a color. Its an odd plug type.

It is a fuse holder. Dug into it. Looks like a 4 amp fuse in it. Heavy red wire comes off of it. Obviously the other end empty. What could it go to?

Probably an old 1980s radio that is long gone. Those had holders like that and VERY low current fuses.
