Damn you @salazar44 ..
I took off work today and I was sitting here with nothing to do.
I HAD to figure out what that plug was, and I did figure out.

It looks like your plug doesn't connect to anything.
Well, mine does.
It goes to the Engine Hood Courtesy Switch PT398-34141 in the hood latch that is part of the factory theft deterrent system.

HAHA... awesome! Thanks man! Very good info!
So this switch seems like it prevents remote start from engaging while the hood is open. I guess I can leave it empty then. I was hoping that I could buy a new part to fill that connector up!

While you are under the car, can you also look up under the foglight area from behind the wheel well? Do you see a connector there? Its not the fog lights... I have those. It is near that area though. I also have some empty connector there going in a vertical direction from the top down. No pics, sorry.

I think that switch triggers the alarm if the hood is opened when it's armed.

I was recently behind the fog lights when I installed my 2019 TRD Pro Rigid brackets.



I'd bet any connector there would probably be for the front parking sensors next to the fog lights.
