E46General discussion and technical help for 1999-2004 3 series cars.
I saw it when I was installing the navigation retrofit wire harness & monitor and assumed it went to the HVAC and I forgot about it. This week I saw it again when I was installing the SMG Steering Shift Paddle wiring in that location.
Only then did I realize it didn't go anywhere or connect with anything else in the area. Also it is impossible for it to reach the regular non-Nav HVAC location or the Tranny box area. In fact it is on a real short wire bunch that entends about 3 inches from the firewall hole into the cabin car. It could only reach under the ashtray or sunglass/cubby holder area. As well as the console switch button bar cluster. But it doesn't connect to anything.
I also noticed it was NOT wrapped up and tucked away like most pre-wiring connectors (I.E OEM Bluetooth) are. It was just sitting there in the mix looking up at me.
If anyone knows what it can be thanks in advance! :
BTW this one has stumped all the experts at other BMW forums.
