Mystery Connector in Engine Bay

Hello again everyone! I've got, hopefully, a quick question for you all. Does anyone know what the connector in the attached pictures is? I've tried searching around but didn't find anything relating to it. It's a 3 terminal round connector that I found just under my windshield washer fluid tank. The plastic around the receptacle is super brittle and breaks off anytime I touch it. I tried to follow it back to the sources, but each end disappears to where I can no longer see it. My car seems to run fine with it unplugged, but I want to check that it isn't anything too important. Thanks for the help!
