the plug is on the back side of the center bezel. That piece you see in the pic is the backside of the Ram logo that is directly under the air controls.

heated seats, inverter, something along those lines. i had mine off a few weeks back and that plug looks familiar. I have to pull it off later this week to run more cameras to my lockpick, so i will try to remember to look.

Default More mystery plugs.....

Ok everyone, I found yet another plug that is plugged into a plastic/empty housing. This is in the dash, when you take the center bezel off, it is on the left plugged in a bare dummy slot. Does this also plug into the spot where the heated seats buttons would go (under the AC/heater controls??

ALSO found a plug by itself underneath the steering wheel knee panel. Just hanging there... Thoughts???

The green plug behind the center bezel is used for the transfer case switch.
I have a 2WD and used 2 leads from that plug for my cup holder light since
they are for the dimmable panel lights.

JMR, which wires did you use? I was looking at the wiring schematics and it looks like I would use the OR/GY (PANEL LAMPS DRIVER) & BK/TN (GROUND). Going to head out to the truck and probe some wires.
