    What is this red wire with no end?

    2005 Wrx. I opened the plastic faceplate by the cigerete lighter and it is just hanging from where the lighter connects.

    looks like someone had added a power wire with a fuse (that is one end of the fuse capsule), i would remove that whole wire off, make sure it doesnt touch anything , it is a power wire, and it may blow a fuse if it shorts to ground....when key is on....

    hope this helps

    I don't know, does it?

    Look for a matching end. Did you previously have an aftermarket stereo?
