    Hey my glow plug relay was clicking with no power to any glow plug and i noticed there was this unconnected wire coming out of the harness. I gotta E350 so its super hard to look around there. Does anyone know where this thing connects? Its on the driver side next to the first glow plug. Thanks!

    It just slips on the thread. If loose, just tighten female slightly with pliers.

    They make the male threaded because its a easy cheap method of roughing up the terminal to give the female thread something to bite into. The female isn't threaded to allow for easy push on pull off use.
