I just picked up my first Vespa and noticed that there are three connectors in the engine compartment that are not connected to anything. Does anyone know if these are supposed to be connected? If they are can you tell me what they should be connected to?

The only thing that I've noticed that is not working is the left hand blinkers.

The first connector in your photo that is red/yellow is your OBD connector. You only connect that when running diagnostics with a PC or the factory tool. It should have a plastic cap to minimize its exposure to the elements. Not sure about the second set of white connections you show.. but will check on my 250 tomorrow and report back.

Thank You
I appreciate the insight on the connector for the diagnostic plug(the cap was actually just between two wires and I've reconnected it (lucky find). Still at a loss on the other two. I've looked all around the engine compartment but there is nothing there that I can see to connect them.

Thanks again for the feedback

Greetings,

I don't have those white connectors on my 250 in that location. They appear to be the same connector types that go into the brown colored relay partially shown in the first photo you posted. Can you take a picture of that relay to make sure all the connectors are plugged in?

What are the colors of the wire going into those 2 white connectors? This might provide a hint when checked against the wiring diagram. Let me know and I might be able look that up for you.

Regards!
