USB cable

Hey guys, I was cleaning my center console the other day and I ended up cleaning underneath my cupholders and I noticed that there was a male usb cable underneath the cupholder. Is this OEM?, not really sure exactly what it's for... maybe an OBD connector? Help would be much appreciated.

No, it is not OEM. Was probably for an iPod adapter. Does it run to the back of the car? Dig around where the CD changer would be. Might find a freebie.

Well thats good news I suppose, I'm not exactly sure where the CD Changer would be in my car is it on the left side of the trunk? If so is it possible that I can connect my iphone somehow? Sorry about my ignorance...

Left side. http://www.bavariansoundwerks.com has some install videos for their ipod adapter, they'll show you where the CD changer connector is.

I'm just guessing it's an ipod adapter, it might not be. It may not even run to the CD changer harness, there are other ways to connect it, but the CD changer is the most common. Worth a look.

May be just a charger connected to the fusebox.
Trace the wiring and you will get the answer.
