Default Name that plug

So some of you have seen my other post on my fire. Now I am putting this back together and have a stray plug that I can't find where the heck it goes. Located up under the driver'* dash and comes off the same part of the harness as the ignition wires. It is a 2000 Bonnie so if someone wants to go out and figure this out I would greatly appreciate it. Maybe it doesn't plug into anything, but I think it does. I don't remember because I didn't unplug it. The guy that was helping me did and he lives two hours away from me. So the plug looks like this: Fairly large plug, white, has an orange retainer clip and 8 wires ( two purple, two white, a black, a black with white stripe, yellow, and an orange).

Judging from distance would that by chance have something to do with the center console?

Nothing in the center console, but it is close to that. Comes off the same part of the harness as the ignition wires for the key.

Ok, car won't start so it has to have something to do with the ignition.

Have you checked all the fuses, front and back? What is, or isn't it doing? Does it crank? Do the lights and gauges work?

Never mind. I have located the plug. Car has all power but no crank. I think it is a security system issue, so no help there. Plus my wiring job is crap anyway. I think I have a few of the thirty yellow wires backwards and some of the whites and blacks. Hard to tell where they came from after they are all melted and stuff. I didn't have automatic headlights, no start, and the traction contol button is lit up all the time now even with the key off. I think I am going to try and find a replacement for it still. I still want HUD too so I will just take care of the two at the same time.

Yup just disconnect the battery and find a harness for it. Just in case you wired something wrong and it decides to catch on fire again.
