    Anyone know what this electrical connector is for?

    Hi, I purchased a used 2012 CT200h premium with f-sport and navi package a few days ago. I just noticed that there is a electrical connector not plug-in to anything in the upper left corner of the engine.

    I looked around the area near that connector but there isn't anything there to plug in back in. My car runs fine and don't notice anything that not working yet. I googled pictures of ct200h engine and all of them showing that connector is connected to another connector. Anyone know what this connector is for?

    I have a 2014 F Sport with every option except navigation (Display Audio instead), and mine is connected. It could be the de-icer, but it's not supposed to be a feature. I suppose it could be related to the radar cruise or the headlight washers? Without a wiring diagram of the area, it would be difficult to tell.

    It's possible. I will try to test it out but it may be hard to test it right now in hot summer days. I will report back.

    Thank you o_tomodo and Raidin. You guys are right. The wiper de-icer is not working. I turned it on for 10 minutes and the bottom of the windshield or wiper blades are not even warm.

    I wonder what happen to it. Maybe the previous owner changed the windshield and didn't put it back.

    Go to menu -> climate
    It's the button on the bottom right corner.

    I also have a de-icer function only available in the climate control from my display.

    I also have a thermal camera, so I should be able to test mine with it. I'll give it a try.
