Wiring question

Mouse nest behind passenger battery. Using the battery insulation to make a nest! Anyway, they also chewed off insulation on a green wire with red tracer that is just a short wire (2 inches) that is looped in a connector that plugs into harness behind the battery. Anyone know what this connector is? I repaired the wire with a new wire and heat shrink but curious to what this connector is for.

I just went and looked at mine and don't see that connector at all. Does you truck have auto 4x4?

usually if it is looped back in the connector it is to complete a circuit if you do not have the option. May be to outside air temp in the overhead monitor. I will look at my truck.

I have a green wire with red tracer in a harness but it is connected to the vacuum solenoid for the 4x4. That's why I wondered if his was auto 4x4 or not.

I notice the same wire on mine yesterday while changing out the battery. Also curious as to what it does

Yes, mine is a 4x4 with auto trans. It looks like the connector comes out of the harness leading to the right headlight, but I can't be sure. The connector unplugs and you're left with two bullet type of connectors that are either end of the looped green wire with red tracer. I have looked at some schematics of the area but nothing is called out.

Does it have Auto 4 wheel drive, (switch on dash)?
