Default Random electrical connections 2005 vue

I replaced the motor in my 05 vue. I used the same wiring harness over again and I have to random connections left that I donít know where they go. One is shown in pic attached and it is on a 6Ē lead that hangs on lower portion of motor between the alternator and starter but closer to thr alternator. The othe is off the negative battery cycle. It has 3 leads. One goes to the battery, one to the frame and the other I donít know itís pretty long and can reach down to the lower portion of motor. You guys have any clue?

I'm not sure about the connector in the photo.. I'll climb under mine and take a peek when I get home tonight.... Does it go to the radiator fan??


Does the engine start and run???

That's a sensor plug. Do you have both o2 sensors hooked up? Also, all the intake sensors?

Yes. I have them all plugged in. I found where it went. It was the sensor on the coolant line going to A/C compressor.
