What are the connections under the hood (please see attached picture)?

Asked by Apr 01, 2016 at 05:46 PM about the 2015 Jeep Compass

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently rented a Jeep Compass and was curious to look under the hood.  
There are two large wires with red connectors attached to something on top
of the air cleaner box.  What are these connections and to what are they
attached?  Please see the picture file I uploaded.  Thanks!
