Unconnected connector in the boot (trunk)

Post by mp3pek » Sun Jan 10, 2021 11:31 pm

Just purchased a 2019 1.3T 140PS N-Motion. In the boot under the carpet and on top of the foam insert with compressor and tyre goop there is a cable with a connector which goes nowhere. Comes from the front of the vehicle and just sits in a recess on top of the foam. I've searched the manual and done an internet search but can't work out what it is for. Any ideas anyone? Thanks.

Picture please , it could be the loom that was fitted to the Tekna model where the Bose sound system was installed.
This could be the Sub Woofer loom

Either Audio or tow bar stuff. Tow bar cable might be in pax boot side panel though?

Mp3pek, as Buffy has mentioned this could well be the Bose Subwoofer Cable which I believe was installed as Std on Models Tekna and above. Not sure if this was an Option on the N-Motion - Dave 😉

As the latest incarceration of the N Motion is now replacing the Tekna I believe , then its not unreasonable to expect the manufacturer to use what is left of suitable wiring looms.
There might be other plugs not used if one cared to dig deep enough
