1969 Dash Harness -What is the brown wire with the red connector?


Here's a pic of my newly "restored" (ie: cleaned and repaired and retaped) dash harness fusebox.  But I don't recall what the red connector on the brown wire is about.  Power seats?

I see in my 1970 wiring diagram there's a 16 gauge brown wire that is the "Accessory Feed". I see the same in the 1969 wiring diagram. However the other end of the wires go to different places in the fuse blocks in 69 & 70.

Everyone I've asked says it's just a spare ACC tap, but why not tap into the actual fuse box? Maybe they figured its a safe bet that most cars have at least ONE option?  My coupe has a mirror light.  But this car (the 2+2 rag) actually as none except Radio, which has it's own.  Power top comes from the horn relay.  No mirror map light, no power seat, no defog...

I've seen that style of red connector before with that flange along the side of the normal part of the plug, and usually it plugged in to a receptacle that was at the end of a very short harness that plugged into the fuse box and had two receptacles on it.

It that helps at all...
