Question Found something strange.

Well I was out cleaning out the inside of the stang and found something strang.

I had pulled the cup holders to wash them and in the process pulled the shifter cover off. I unhooked the cigarette lighter and then found a second plug, plugged into the back of the cover. I have no other switches on the shifter cover since it is an Y2K. So what does that set of wires go to? It has a 4 pin connector or something like that on it, and it is just plugged into the plastic cover going to nothing. I have no idea what it might be.

Does anyone know?

Mine had that too, there was actually a sticker that said it was a test connector, for manufacturing.
