Whats this wire for?

I was wiring in an Ipod controller yesterday and while I had the dash off, I noticed that there was a wire harness connected to a dummy plug beside the 12v power outlet above the drink holder. Any idea was this wire harness is for?

A picture would help a lot. Might be for AUX switches.

I didn't take a pic when I had it apart, however I found one on the net.

I've circled the harnesses. One is for the 12v outlet but the other is a mystery...

If it's by the 12v outlet, that's for regular cab trucks, so you can put your key in the keyhole and turn off the passenger side airbag, Crewcab and I believe superabs don't have that keyhole, or the orange "airbag off" light

Correct. My crew cab has the harness stowed behind the panel also.
