Extra wires in center console? 99 s70 m56

Post by smacknab » Sat May 02, 2020 11:02 am

Hi all, closing up my evaporator job and I've got some extra wires here I'm having a hard time accounting for.. there's nothing in the center console unit that goes with these three wires. I'm thinking they're wires in here for the automatic versions of the car and they use the same wiring harness?

Perhaps the S70 was converted from a V70 and that’s the third seat heater.

It’s a thing

What features does your car have on the center console? Do you have seat heater switches for example?

Yeah the seat heater switches etc were accounted before. I think its all automatic transmission switches, I just forgot they weren't hooked up when I took it apart.

Consulting your notepad of disconnects that you carefully completed as you do this job would clear that up
