What are these connectors?

I was poking around the fuse box area today to do some wiring when I noticed these two connectors with nothing plugged in to them. They are obviously for some options that I don't have in this truck but I was just wondering what they're for. Truck is a 1999 F350. Here's a pic:

Having a little problem with inserting a picture so I'll just have to direct you to the pic with the above link until I figure it out.

Round one on the right is for an AIC controller (fords aux idle controller) allows you to set the idle or down when the truck is in park or neutral, and the ebrake is set.

the one on the left, I have no idea.

The left one looks similar to the clutch pedal switch connector. Is your truck an automatic?

Thanks guys. Aha - connector for the clutch switch - right, that's probably it, my truck is an automatic.

And as for the AIC - I did find some information on that, I didn't even know it existed. I also found a pinout for the connector. One of the pins is labeled "key-on power" - sounds like a great place to hook up anything that needs key-on power, that is, with a relay if it's anything that has more than a few milliamps draw.
Thanks again.

Moe
