On my ZR it's connected to the headlight harness. There is an extra 2 open plugs. But again, on my '02 ZR.

On my wifes 04 Sabercat they attached it to the battery. On my 03' F7 there is a accessory plug on the right side against the back beside the steering shaft. The wires are yellow and brownish.

I just put one on a couple of days ago look behind your servo motor there is already a factory plug for it.. if you don't have the other plug end just go to any auto motive store and buy it ..like $2 attach and plug.. that's it..

This might be a really juvenile question but where would I find the servo motor?

Find your exhaust valves and follow the cables back to the servo!

if you still can't figure it out, open your hood, look at your ignition where the key plugs in....look at the back side of that in the engine compartment and look down from there. There will be a plug with a yellow and a brown wire attached to it. It might be buried under other wiring, but it should be up against the firewall or bulkhead or whatever it is called on a sled. You just buy the couterpart to that piece (looks like the same two pronged plug, but with black and red wiring) at a farm and fleet or autoparts store and plug that into the stock plug. Then connect the heated shield plug wiring to those wires and mount the plug next to the ignition key or wherever you like on your sled.
