Hey guys.
Im still learning heaps about my 02 Vx L67 and I do everything that needs to be done myself.
Well I was under the bonnet today checking all fluids when I noticed a loose wire behind my brake fluid bottle. Can someone please tell me what it is. And where does it plug into. ??? Thanks guys

When you say "loose wire", do you mean the white thing near the firewall that looks like a connector, but doesn't seem to have anything plugged into it? Otherwise, I can't see any actual loose wire.

I believe it's part of the body wiring loom that connects to something on the LS motors but isn't required for the V6 model.

This connector is for the Throttle Relaxer module on vehicles equipped with Electronic Traction Control (ETC). Your vehicle doesn't have electronic traction control, just the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). The Throttle Relaxer Module was connected in between the accelerator pedal to throttle body via cable to the throttle body and if commanded by the engine control module, would disengage or release control (take over) the accelerator from the driver to kill the revs in the event of a loss of traction to stop the driver losing control of the vehicle.

Holden, alot of the times would have universal harnesses installed during production, and not have all features installed into certian vehicles as they went down the factory line. Made it easier to build to order.

My 2000 VT Clubsport has this connector, but no ETC.

Although you may be correct about the connector, his Calais should have traction control. The V6 traction control is all electronic via the PCM/ABS modules, it uses a combination of reducing timing and cutting cylinders. It's bloody aggressive :( but there is definitely traction control.

My mistake, yes you're right about the V6 ETC. The V8's had the throttle relaxer, possibly due to the PIM, PCM comms setup.

No problem. The V6 traction control is the ultimate fun police :(
