Question Spare plug in engine bay???? Car won't start

Managed to get the engine back together this weekend after a full engine rebuild, on putting it all back in the car I'm left with a plug I can't find where it goes!! It's down by the thermostat area about 10" long from main loom it has a black male plug with one blue and yellow wire and one green an purple.

The starter motor is not engaging at all I have checked all the wiring to it seems fine scratching my head a bit at the moment


Any help will be much appreciated

Hi ya

Hard to say but it might be the crankshaft position sensor on the front of the engine block just under the water pump around where the dipstick tube goes in to the block but I think that plug is grey but can remember

Only other things around there really is throttle body, map sensor, water temp, lamba sensors,

Have you got a diagnostic tool you can run a test on see what sensors are working and what are not

I think my money is on the water temp sensor it's hard to see it just to the rear of the thermostat housing below the rear hose

Can you see what colours the wires are

Hope this helps

Crank sensor I left on the loom that's in its place, map sensor is plugged in, water temp sensor also plugged in.
Now look g into possibility of it being clutch switch??? Thing is car started before with no need to put the clutch down?? Would an 03 mini have this feature or is it for later models?

Little use in knowing what the plug is but my 03 does not need clutch down to start.
