Default What is this part that is not connected!? Help please

Hey Everyone,

What is this line (electrical?) that is not connected? I realized it today while briefly cleaning my engine bay... gulp.







2006 STI:
APS CAI, Grimm speed 3 port solonoid, custom tuned. Otherwise, all stock. Is it from the stock solonoid?

Looks like a grounding wire, I wouldn't worry about it.

That was what I was thinking of, I could not think of the name (grounding wire). Just wanted to make sure there was no harm... I was "powerwashing" the engine bay with one of the genie high power washers, but it was nowhere near that close to blow that off... And No CELs on the way back.

It's a grounding wire, it came loose with you did your BCS.
It connects through one of the bolts that holds that big black bracket to the fender (the one that holds the BCS)

Grounding wires are just...like.... well.... an escape for electricity, it carries any excess current. It is round so that you can clamp is onto a bolt, and thats what you should do.

I would say connect it back. Try tracing the ground wire to see if you can tell which component it goes to.

Please don't post with useless Info like this.....


To the OP, Just reground the wire to the Bold on the Inside fender. You should be good to go after that.

It cant just 'pop' off, the bolt threads through it. Looks like that was never bolted down. Just undo bolt and put it through the round part and tighten it back down. Nothing specifically needed...
