What are these wires?

I just remembered that I wanted to ask you all about this. While I was swapping my interior I noticed some wires in my center console. There is a 4 pin flat connector not connected to anything anything just chilling on the carpet on the side closest to the front of the car kinda behind the radio on the floor. In the middle there. AHHHH... HOLD ON. I am going to go take a photo of it. I can't wait. BRB.. OK Im back, kinda like back to the future. From your seat its like I was never gone. LOL Here is the photo. What the hell is this for? Heated seats? Ejection seat?

And a great connector to use for a tire pressure monitor's power or anything else that needs a switched and unswitched 12 volt source.

It really is a handy connector since it provides:

A ground
12 volts unswitched (always on)
12 volts switched (on when the ignition is on)
the fourth connection when grounded mutes the radio
