    Default Mystery wiring behind center console

    I grappled with putting this in the electrical section, but it seems like it'd be more at home here. I recently did a heater core job, and discovered loads of wires tucked away behind the dash. I've enclosed a photo of some wires that dangled out from just below the rear of the radio, pretty much right behind the low fuel/lights out/low washer fluid information display, and while I'm not too concerned about the wires with wire nuts on them as I'm sure they're part of the previous owner's chaotic radio install, nor am I too fussed about what appears to be a stereo connector tucked sort of behind some white wires, the spade and bullet connectors dangling down from the mess are what I'm curious about.

    Does anyone recognize them, or are they not stock? I'm without a manual at the moment, unfortunately.

    My thoughts also.

    See if you can follow them up behind the dash and see what they hook into IE.. Speakers, powwer etc.

    Agreed! NOT OEM wiring and most likely related to an aftermarket stereo and speakers. There's a good chance the wiring will be connected to an adapter that is plugged into the OEM connectors.
