Default Where Does This Plug Connector Go?

While replacing some crusty vacuum lines I just noticed that a connector was unplugged. Does anyone know where this connection goes? It's under the distributor and connected to a wire/harness. I have attached a picture.

Looks like the AC compressor power wire. Does tour truck have AC?

Tough to tell but it could be a/c or may be for the distributor.

Truck is just the base model, so no A/C. Going to check this weekend and get a better look.

there is a good chance that even if the truck didnt come with a/c, it may still have the plugs for missing components due to using the same harness

not saying that the plug is definitely for a/c but just something to keep in mind

It probably is the A/C connector. It's all carboned up. Just didn't notice it. Thanks for the help everyone

Nissan used one harness for the electrical system. They were are all wired for AC, that way it could be installed at the dealer if the customer wanted it added after the truck arrived. It was cheaper so to use the same electrical harness for all the models instead of having to add or delete.
