Strange sensor found in right front end

Recommended Posts

I just purchase a 1996 Sedan Deville from a tow yard. I had great luck a few years back buying a 1993 Deville from a tow yard and loved it. Found this one a purchased it a weekend or two ago. Been doing some mild tune ups such as oil change and plugs. Recently I was looking under the right front end of my bumper and found something wrapped in a plastic bag and zip ties to what appears to be the power steering cooling line. It looks like a sensor of some sort. I have never seen anything like it before and my original thought was it had to do with the transmission fluid because a tiny bit of pink fluid was in the tip. I have no clue where it goes but the cable isn’t more than a foot or two. Anyone know anything and can you help me ?? The engine and transmission run great and there are no engine lights on the dash. It has a threaded fitting on the end and two wires that go to a plug. I have photos but have no clue how to add them to the thread. I’ve never used a forum before.

That is my favorite year. I am sure someone will chime in, is probably power steering or trans related. A pressure switch of some kind


Nice, clean, luxury= fine automobile

My thought was the same about it having to do with power steering, but I have never seen anything like it. I’m more familiar with the 4.9L I had in my 1993 DeVille. Hopefully someone can help. Thanks! I look forward to the memories with this newer body style and the north star motor
