Mystery Plug Behind Cig Lighter

So I was pulling the cig lighter out of my 08 250 Lariat and noticed a plug that had it's own little home behind my cig lighter. It's just plugged into a blank. The only feature I have seen in that vicinity is the traction control but that is typically up next to the reverse sensor switch.

Anyone know what this is for?

Power adjustable pedals on mine I believe on that side. I have one on the other side I'm trying to figure out what it goes to.

I've seen a Passenger airbag switch in that location. You have to use the ignition key to turn it off. The switch is in regular cabs and for use with infant car seats...

the crew cabs don't get the airbag on off selector so that may Be it
