What does this plug under the dash go to?

Anybody know what this plug in the attached photo goes to? It comes through the hole in the bottom part of the center console under the dash.

I have been replacing my air box since the flaps don't work anymore (insulation dry rotted and started coming out of the vents) and I'm putting the dash back together and I can't find what this goes into. I didn't mark it, which is very unusual, so I'm hoping it's an extra connector that goes to an option I don't have. I've looked everywhere and can't find anything to plug it into and it's driving me nuts since I can't close everything up until I know for sure. It takes way too long to take it all apart again if I missed something.

Thanks!!

IIRC that is the power connector for the optional integrated cell phone system.

** IMPORTANT **

Readers, remember this when you're looking for 12v power for that external iPod/Bluetooth adapter, adding interior LED's, or any other mod that needs power!

I also found the same connector in mine when I replaced the radio and I know I did not disconnect it from anything so I too was wondering what it was used for,I thought maybe a trailer connection.LOL
