What were these 2 connectors for?

One of them is just an empty plug, and the other one, the plug and pigtail wires are still there, they have just been capped off. Can somebody help me identify which plugs are for what purpose?

Sometimes a blank plug is used to complete a circuit for a number of things. It could also be the wiring system used for equipment the previous owner used. We need more info to help you better.

Sure, it’s the 2013 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor. I know it came pre-wired for the console, lights, etc. I bought the 24 inch Havis angled console to put back in. The previous owners ripped everything out and just cut the wires and left most of the wires where they were. But if somebody out there could say, oh yeah, that connector was for the lights and siren, and the other connector was for the radios, or something like that. Somebody must be very familiar with them.

Those are the upfitter plugs. The empty one should be six heavy wires, three are power, and three are ground. The other one that has wires capped off is a mix of things, none of which are inputs to make lights flash, they are all outputs, such as VSS, Park, Ignition, and 12v+. They are the same plugs in every Ford PIU up to 2019.

This is for a 2017, but it should be the same.88728810-F411-45AA-B4FC-09C041BAB1BD.jpeg

Now that I think about it, Im pretty sure that the 20+ also use the same plugs.

I believe I uploaded the upfitters guide for that vehicle here, do a search of the website and you will find most of the guides ford had available and you will see what and where.

Thank you so much for that information. That’s EXACTLY what I was looking to find out. Awesome! Thank you!
