    I need some help figuring out what this symbol means.

    I am working on a dune buggy, and this symbol is in the schematic in a few different places. I have never seen it before, so I was wondering if I could get some help with identifying it.

    Here is an image of the whole schematic:

    TOS prevents the discussion of topics relating to vehicles.

    It is a connector with those wires bundled. Likely a secured connector with a clip. The rectifier/regulator has pigtails coming out with the connector on the ends. It looks like most other devices must have the connector on the body of the device.

    Technically, it says [emphasis added]:

    6. Restricted topics. .....
    • Automotive modifications

    My understanding is that vehicles can still be discussed, just not projects that aim to modify the original design. The OP didn't mention making any modifications, although "working on" might imply that.
