View Full Version : What are these for?

I was poking around the boat tonight and noticed a bunch wires on the engine harness that are not connected to anything. This is a 99 LTR engine. Any I idea what these are for?
There are three in this next picture. A Black, a gray one, and an orange / black stripe that is clipped at the connector.

Those are the wires that dealers use to hook your boat up to the computers.

That harness in the top photos definitely not the DLC. The DLC has two rows of terminals and there would be a white/black, black, orange, black/white and brown/white wire. The bottom photo has the DLC below your hand, with the black wire loop and cap on the connector. The flat connectors are not used and the others aren't used if the wires are coiled like the ones in the second photo. If you look for a sensor in the vicinity of the plug and there's nothing without a harness, they aren't used.

Thanks, that's what I figured, but I was curious.
