Mystery Connector

Whilst considering places to put som eUSB poer sockets I prised the trim off, just to the lower right of the steering wheel.

To my surprise it housed a connector block and cable to the wiring harness.

Any clues as to what this is? I've looked in the manual but cannot see any 'optional' switches, lights or controls that are referenced in this location...

Re: Mystery Connector

its for cruse control. should be a 4 wire plug. 2 for the switch and 2 to light an LED. near the brake pedal you will find another plug, this is for an extra switch that sits next tot he other switch on the brake pedal. also somewhere under the steering wheel plastics you will find another plug that is for the cruse control stalk.
acquire all 3 things and fit them, you will then have cruse control wink

i am trying to find the bits myself.

The colours don't mean anything.
If you can read the numbers printed on them then I may be able to find out if we know the engine also.

Thanks, that sounds handy.  I will have a delve. 
Might be a good feed for sat navigation.   
One less dangling wire.
