Disabling THEFT light - where is the PATS module?

I'm trying some new tunes that don't support PATS, so the THEFT light blinks all the time. Apparently, I can unplug the light - either the red or green wire - but I don't know where the PATS module is. Do any of you have a great description of the location, or a pic?

Look down by the accelerator, if you look just to the right of it, you should see a green plug. Unplug the green plug and the light will stop flashing altogether, enjoy!

Yep. I found it after posting my question. Thanks, though, for following up.
