I to have that wire. At first I thought it was the AUX cable but under close inspection it's not so I'm stumped also. It is weird why there is wiring included that leads nowhere and does nothing.

Just yesterday while I had the rear boot insulation out I noticed another wire that lead nowhere. I should have really took a picture but I forgot. It was an orange wire that lead up from underneath the boot. Strange :blink:

Maybe it is for the Manual passenger Air bag Switch.

Think its in the left hand side of the dashboard as you open the door, you should have the key slot, otherwise some cars have them in the glovebox, but I think we can elimiate that one...

Its an Optional extra and it sits top section of open glovebox , if you had it installed there would be center consol light next to heated front winscreen switch , to display if you had turned it off.
