It may be for the fast idle solenoid at the carb. used to open throttle plates when AC load is initiated.... or it's for the thermal limiting switch that kills power to AC compressor when refrigerant is too low. I just can't remember for sure.

Check this thread and request the wiring diagram for your ride... this nice feller sent out many to fellow members.

What year is your 'Vette?

In my '81, a similar looking connector goes to the electric aux. fan on the radiator.

But, my wiring is blue/black.

Check out this post with a picture of my factory setup:

Your 81 has/had an auxillary fan. Sender is on the rear of the right head.
