Not a problem, just a WatIzIt?

My new to me 2003 7.3l F350 has four wires that are just snipped, and come out of the wiring loom right above the master brake cylinder. They are black, blue, red, and white (or faded yellow?). I thought something had been removed, but when I look at the other trucks in our work fleet, they have them too. What were they for? I wonder why Ford would just snip them, rather than terminate them or insulate the ends in some way.

Whilst I am at it, in the glove compartment is another watizit. It is a round electrical plug, that probably could hold 8 wires. There is only one wire in it, that joins two of the pins. There are no other wires or pins in it at all. Watsdatfor?

Thank you,
Bob

Wires above the mater cylinder are extras or upfitters the other end are under the panel below the steering wheel on the right side, as for the other in the glove box IDK.

Not sure if this is what you see, but a brake control normally has white, blue, red and black wires. Check under the dash and see if the plug is still connected. Maybe someone just cut the wires under the hood.

these were actually left there from the factory.. they are there if you wanna hook them up to something and not run wire thru the firewall. if you pop off your fuse panel under the steerin wheel you will see the other end of them stuffed up in there.
