Exclamation 1993 4x4 Wiring NIGHTMARE

Can anyone ID this plug and where it goes preferably with photos?






The round end plugs in to a plug on the driverside engine bay...almost underneath the brake booster...I cant figure out where the other end goes...whether a fuse goes there or it plugs in somewhere?

ANY help would be greatly appreciated

Is it the ABS censor that goes to the hub? Can you post pics where you pulled it from?

Okay, that wire that I was trying to find out what it was? Yea, it was the wire to the light under the hood...lol

I've now traced the gremlin down to the transfer case motor control module. I rebuilt the transfer case motor tonight...it was full of rust and definitely seized. I now turn on the key and press the 4x4 button and i can hear the control module click once, then click again. I've come to the assumtion that I need a new controle module. Anybody have one that I can buy? Or does anyone have any other suggestions that I can try to get the motor to engage the transfer case?

Update on this: I was talking to a few guys over on TRS and they said if the module clicks on and off, its the motor. So, I bought a new transfer case motor, NOT a remanufactured one because I dont trust them. So, $90.09 later, I get it hooked up and IT WORKS!! So as soon as I get the $$$ for Lockouts, I will have 4x4 !
