Unidentifiable part

Hi all

I'm after some help in identifying a small part in my Wrangler JK 2007. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It lives in the engine bay and fits on the end of a connector (see last pic). But the part in question ends there, not connected to anything else. Thanks again.

I think if that was it then the light would plug straight into the connector without the need for the part in question. Have you got a JK 2007-2011?

In fact is there anyone with a 2007-2011 JK who could post pics of that part of their engine bay, so I can see if theirs has the same part????

Seriously. 4 posts and they're all on this thread. Anyway, does it look like there is a cap for a fuse to go in there? I remember seeing that and trying to figure out what it ran; we thought the trailer harness maybe.

It would also help if you put your location in your profile. At least country or state. Not all vehicles produced have the same equipment. There are changes for other country. Classic examples are headlights, instruments, bumpers, tail light assemblies, wheels and tires. There are also differences under the hood including engines and emission controls. Diesels, for example are available in Europe but not in the U.S., yet. Even when the diesel arrives with the JL, it will probably be different than the one available in overseas markets.

There are even differences in U.S. and Canadian Wranglers. If you are not in the U.S. than that is critical information for someone in the U.S. who may have the same year.

I'm well aware of the differences between models, countries, states etc. But youve either got this part in your car or you haven't. It's a simple question. The photos are pretty clear.

I know what that is for. Not really what you might think. Thing is I won't waste my time with an arrogant poster.

It's a remote voltage regulator managing the 12v current to the transmissions turbo encabulator.

Its the electrical connection for the muffler-bearing, which are only installed on 'special' Oz versions of the JK 'cars'.

Are you sure? Because it being an Aus export I've heard they use a remote actuated piston return spring that the PCM needs to connect to in order to properly return to BDC. If the remote sensing unit fails nothing happens.

And all of that is tied to the activation of the muffler bearing

LMAO.....

I had no clue what that part was, but after about 10 mins of talking with my friend GOOGLE. I know now!

Thank you for pointing that part out.

This site is wonderful. I'm always learning something new....

When I was in the National Guard, we were in the motor pool on day doing some vehicle maintenance. We told a new private to go and get some horn fluid from the mechanics. He came back a few minutes later saying that they kicked him out of their shop. He truly had no idea that there was no such thing as horn fluid.

Here's the muffler bearings I recommend. Or if you already have them then just get the rebuild kit.

Nope. It's a ball bearing. It's all ball bearings nowadays.
