That is the 3X signal wire from ICM->PCM. That is 1 of 2 signals generated from the crank sensor. The 3x is for sequential fuel injection and determing which coil to fire within 120(1/6 of cam rotation) degrees of crank rotation along with calculating rpms. A car will run if the 3x signal is lost after starting but it should not start if not present during cranking(not 100% sure on that).

That is a common circuit utilized by aftermarket alarms and remote starts.

Also, don't you mean a 4T60E?
