Any car accessory experts out there who can solve this mystery?
I got a new (used) car recently. An 07 Passat 2.0T. Everything is fine about it (besides the massive oil leak due to previous work by someone who, my mechanic tells me, did not know what they were doing -getting fixed as we speak)
Anyway, in the trunk there is a strange wiring setup I have never seen in a car and no one I've asked so far has seen this either. There are 2 wires. One is short and hangs from the roof of the trunk (and runs along it towards the back and out of sight) and has a male car DC plug on the end. The other is longer and extends out from somewhere where the trunk floor meets the rear seat-backs. It has a female car DC plug on its end. The 2 could reach each other and could be plugged into each other, but I found them unplugged and have yet to attempt plugging them in.
The car is in the shop so I can't run out and check further right now, but this is driving me nuts. What could it be?!
