Please help me ID this connector

Iíve searched the forum, consulted the Bentley book, and even looked through the 600+ page parts catalog. Iím at a loss. What is this three-pin test port thing just below the ICV and what does it do? Thanks for your help!

This is a plug for Porsche factory diagnostics..it will never ever be used again.....All you are missing is a little rubber plug.
Not to worry about in the future;-)

That is a diagnostic port for crank sensor, VW used them also I am not sure what equipment was used but it goes to a sensor near the flywheel.

Anyone know of a part number for the plug? I always thought the three pins were unsightly.

Hereís everything Iíve learned since the beginning of this thread. Thanks to everyone who has helped educate me on this unusual part.

1. The visible three-prong port is the tail end of part # 911.606.108.00 aka ďtiming mark sender.Ē
2. Itís an essentially-unused diagnostic port.
3. Replacing a broken-off dust cap requires replacing the entire sensor, as it is sold as a single piece only.
4. A 7/16Ē black nylon cap from Loweís costs $1.15 for two and fits perfectly.

Not original. I’ll give you $5k for the whole car.

Nice fix. Looks perfect!
