I'll take a pic later if I get a chance. I just installed the Kicker Amplifier and was wondering what that unused connector is for.

Only thing I can possibly thing of is the wiring for the power outlet if you don't already have that option.

Probably an OBD-II port.

Could it be for the trailer wiring harness if you don't already have one?

Well, i replaced the BA amp with the kicker amp, but the connector i'm talking about is up in the D pillar. If you were to follow the amplifier wiring up into the d pillar towards the headliner, there is an extra unused blue connector. I'm thinking this may lead to wiring that is used for the reverse camera and/or reverse warning lights that would be in the headliner if you had that option. I dont have either of those.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I just replaced my BA amp with the Kicker today and saw the unused blue connector. I do have a backup cam and reverse sensors but still have the unused connector. So I was also curious what it's for.

The only thing I can think of so far is that they use a common wiring harness for the WK and XK and that maybe it's for the rear AC on the XK?
