I have no clue, but one of them looks like a ground. I would not do anything with them just ignore them.

My car had the same thing.. Previous owner did it himself apparently as there were exposed wires everywhere and the lights weren't secured well..

Literally took me an hour to strip all the wires carefully because he wrapped them around and in and out of cables. Frustrating. Haha

Gotta love the p.o.'s mods.... My 93, the girl had friends hook up the cheap 6" self contained neons in purple for the one lights... Needless to say they were the first thing I pulled when it got it home... Then the faded out tint....

Heard that. I striped the lights a couple hours after I bought the car.


If you can't do something right.. Don't do it at all.

Yeah... I kept finding loose wires everywhere too.. They were wrapped around the rear diff, around the radiator support, through the control arms, around the steering rack... EVERYWHERE. It was terrible.

Could it be a plug in for a block heater? For cold winter starting?

None of them work. We ran power to every bar and the best we got was half of one lit up

Re: Wtf are these wires for???

That's awful strange looking but it looks like it's insulated and protected correctly, and routed a more "professional" way so it doesn't look like a DIY job... It might be what people are saying. A plug-in for an engine block heater.

One way to find out!! Plug it in. Haha

Well that's helpful! A good way to warm the engine a little before starting it. Ha
