Unplug it and see what happens.

I will have to take a look myself. curiosity kills.

I think it must have something to do with the brakelights and the license plate light

depends on what year it is.... in the 1999-2004 the automatic fuel shut off is on the drivers side behind the tail light... hidden behind the carpet kinda...

but yeah that looks like a fuel cutoff... seeing the wire going down threw a hole toward the gas tank.

Am guessing fuel shut off. Should have a switch on it, and should be mentioned in your manual...??

Don't try to confuse us with this "reading the manual" baloney.

Pfeh.

Like anyone's gonna do that.

Asking people on www.allfordmustangs.com is *way* more entertaining.

+1 on the blinker fluid.

The manual says to clean the opening with prop wash before adding blinker fluid. If the opening will not open you will need to go down to the machine shop and ask the guy for a "machinists punch".

He'll be happy to give you one

No charge.

This devise is in my 2006 GT.

The switch to turn the fuel pump back on is up front in the driver's side foot well for the 2005/6/7 models. Fuel pump is in the tank which is under the rear seat on 2005/6/7 models.

Owner's manual? Is that the thing in my glovebox still wrapped in plastic? AFM is full of better information (or full of it in some cases, making it much more entertaining).

I'm leaning toward the blinker fluid pump as suggested above...

My manual is opened... I'm LESS of a MAN for it...

I tried so hard to remember the seat belt chime sequense but then couldn't do it.... had to open the manual... have since disconected the battery and it's back... but I'm thinking it would be manlier to go at the chime with plyers looking for the wiring...??

I think you are all wrong...it's the connection to the oil slick control or the license plate flipper.
