    throttle body sensor?

    Hey guys, just noticed on my car a connector plug hanging freely in the bay, had a quick mooch and seems it came from the tb. Now i presume this is for some kind of a sensor but what exactly does it do? Cheers

    If it's the one i'm thinking off it'll be the air intake temp sensor bud
