Not quite understanding what you are saying, and not knowing what kind
of car you have, I'll take a WAG.

I think it's the test plug for the O2 sensor.

Is it a white plastic plug, with the wire sort of folded up with a
twist tie? The other end goes to the exhaust system, underneath the
car where the O2 sensor is mounted.
