My Ride: ///m3 vert, 05 MCS
center console: under the hood

I've been reading alot of diys recently and decided I wanted to spruce up the interior a bit; replace the standard trim and dye my seats. When I removed my center console, I noticed two wires. The first wire (the bigger wire) was connected to the center console piece, and the other was not. Does anyone know what the function of that wire is? It's circled below.

Yup! Have one like this too. It's a ready wire for the phone option.
