I dont know what connector you are talking about, but you might have a wire which is shorting to ground, and when you move the connector which you plugged in it moved that wire as well. You also might have one of the two secondary fan switches acting up on you.
If you have dual electric fans then the primary fan is controlled by the ecm. The secondary fan comes on when either the ac switch turns it on, or the coolant switch in the head turns it on. Consequently when the secondary fan gets a ground from either one of these two switches it ALSO grounds an input to the ecm which is "Fan Request". So the ecm does not control the secondary fan, but it does know when it is turned on and if the primary fan is not running when the "Fan Request" input comes on, then the ecm will turn it on.
I know (and hope of course) that you said you fixed the problem, but just keep this in mind if it mysteriously starts acting up again. I had a similar intermittant problem which ended up being a short in the wire which went to the coolant fan switch in the head.
Sorry, I just re-read your post and realized that you meant the air conditioning tube (I was thiking of the A.I.R. system for emissions). Yes, that is the switch which I was referring to above. You can just leave the switched plugged in like you said. You don't really need the tube, but you must ground the switch if you remove it (the tube).
