Second picture looks to be a aftermarket hood pin for an alarm.

For the first picture you might want to follow to see where that plug leads.

the 2nd one is just the "hood sensor" lets the central locking system know when the hood is popped...

the first one i cant see where it came from... just find the place to plug it in, it has to be kinda close...

could that be the plug to your outside air temp sensor?

or even your antilock braking system? hard to tell without following the wire.

that goes to the kaneuter valve, similar to a flux capacitor, it is a mythical valve that has never been seen by mere men. Scientists and modern scholars contend that it may have supernatural powers and may have been forged by el diablo him self

yep, and if you vag your car, you'll probably see a code for a short or intermittent signal for the hood sensor.

Not sure about the second but I'm sure vag would come in handy again.

The first plug goes into your throttle body.

Look for the connector at about 11 oclock on the actual throttle body, it hooks up from underneath

throttle body plugs are all in and working, the one i am showing you doesnt even reach that much. can someone post a pic of those plugs of their cars please.

Could be a plug to the washer tank. But if that was unplugged the washer warning light would come on your cluster screen.

im pretty sure that goes to the outside air temp sensor down on the power steering cooler line it should run up to the cluster of wires and connect
