I'm sure you're dead on. I had an earlier post where the maroon plug was left off when the dealer installed the hitch. Nothing worked and they had a hell of a time figuring it out until they opened the box on another hitch kit and found the plug. Put it in mine and everything worked perfect!Whaleya said:The socket with the plug is Honda's way of splicing wires. The blank plug in the socket connects the various pins in the socket.
It's a cheap, reliable and waterproof way of splicing.
