    What\'s this wire for?

    I woke up yesterday to find that my Jimmy(88) had been broken into. And just for fun the F!#@er had cut my starter wires too. There is another wire running along side the starter wires, what is this for? Where does it go? I think it's for a sensor of some sort but I'm not sure.

    Where are you talking about, under the dash or down by the starter motor?

    Gawd I feel for you... when I got broke into they tore just about all the wiring out under my dash and cut up most of it in my engine! It took me months to figure it out! It still has issues to this day.... what color the wire is would help a lot and even the size (gauge) would help if you can tell.... details as much as you can on it will help narrow it down.......

    The wire is down by the starter motor.
    It is a blue wire, about 18 ga.
    Thanks for the help.
