    Question What are these wires/connectors for?

    While playing around near my gear stick linkage i came across two connectors that are not connected to anything.. Does anybody have any ideas what they are for?

    Illumination is the grey and yellow, so maybe some missing switches? Cig lighter and ashtray maybe too.

    They are both illumination wires the twin one looks to be for the illumination in the ashtray and the single one looks to have come off the ciggy lighter socket
    hope this helps

    defo not for the cig lighter as that is different and is connected with my phone charger in it. Illumination wires huh, can't think what you would illuminate down there..

    EDIT: that could well be it Khalid... thats the only thing i can think of in that area that would be illuminated..

    out of interest not related dirctly but how do you get the leather gaitor off, I can get the trim surrond off but gave up as the leather gaitor looks like its just stapled onto something and wont come free.

    it is fixed to a plastic surround that you just pull away from the sides of the centre console with your finger nails or a flat blade screw driver or a knife from your cutlery drawer

    That black one probably is the gear selector one, as i'm guessing the stick itself would then be earthed?!?
