red plug behind master cylinder

I looked through my manual and on-line at rovers north, but couldn't figure out what this plug is for. Should it be connected to anything?

Thanks for your help.

A close up would be better - what is it connected to? Is it integrated into the wiring harness? The only thing I can think of with red plugs are washer jet connectors, but the 94 might not have even had that type. Seems non-stock at first glance, but only more detailed pix could tell.

Its a late model clutch master from a Td5 style Defender. They have a fluid switch built in. So what it means is that someone replaced your clutch master with a later model part. It isn't really "wrong" because the clutch master will work and do the exact same job as the NAS part, it just has that outlet in it with the location for the wiring.
In a NAS car that switch is not there, so nothing should be plugged into it. No worries.

Muchas gracias. Thank you, I was really stumped (as I couldn't find it in any of my manuals).

We still need a close up shot.
I have a late model and i don't have a fluid switch.
I thought it was a NAS thing.

Not an NAS thing.

It has to do with the ABS/TC system, so not every truck has it.

A closer picture is going to take me a week, as the truck is at the shop (and I'm headed to Africa for a week). I'll post up when I get back.
