Anyone know what this plug in is for?

I am hoping they make a power adaptor that I can plug into this, then mount the adaptor inside the glove box? This is on a 98 A1500, under the glove box on the left side.

If you don't have a CB on your bike then that is most likely one of the plugs for it.

I really don't know what that plug is for but it is not for the CB. I'll be guessing here. Do you have fairing side lights? If you don't, that may be for the side lights. If it is for the side lights I would not use it for a power outlet. Most of the lights on the bike go through relay #3 and it is really overloaded. It has a tendency to melt the plastic surrounding the relay terminals.

If you want a power plug, I'd recommend that you run a dedicated power wire to the fuse panel or the battery through a separate fuse holder.

That plug is for side fairing lighting. I just recently modified my '89 from running lights to turn signal lighting on my fairing, and that is the connection. As mentioned above, I would NOT recommend using this for power. Instead, my suggestion is to wire into the fuse box Accesory terminal and run wires under the seat and radio housing to the glovebox compartment.
