    I believe that's the connection for your four wheel drive indicator light on your instrument panel.

    I didn't know i had a four wheel drive indicator light. Is this on the dash w/the gauges or on the 4wheel drive shifter on the floor?

    thanks

    If your truck has one, the indicator light should be located beside your choke light below your speedo. One thing you forgot to mention was the year of your truck- this helps in the diagnosis......I'm basing my answer on my 84.

    I'm pretty sure that's what the connection is for......As far as I know, the switch that powers the indicator light is the only electrical part of a 208.

    on my 208 I decided I know when its in 4wd I don't need a light to tell me so I cut It in half to get the wire out of the way.
