Default Unplugged Harness/Cigarette Lighter wiring

I was just out ripping apart my center console looking for the wires to the rear cigarette lighter for an upcomming project. When I lifted out the grey piece that the cup holder rests on (and many people put after market switches into), I think I found what I was looking for.

But, I also found a small 8 wire harness that was hooked to nothing. It had a black wire, brown/white wire, purple/white wire, and a tanish beigeish color wire. Is this like a transmission service port? For traction control if my car was equipt?

Also under this pannel was a red wire, and a black wire that plugged into a connector. I couldn't figure out how to get the rest of the console apart, so I couldn't tell if they led back to the rear lighter. I could get to the rear cigarette lighter and there was a red and a black wire going to it. Can I assume they are the same wires?

I have a pic if you want to see it, but if you could let me know without posting the pic that would be great.

The 8-wire plug is for the Traction Control switch, but there is more to it than just hooking the button up to it. For starters you are going to need the ECM, and ABS assembly from a 1994/1995 Bonneville SSE or SLE with the TC. There'* probably a bit more to it than that, but that'* what I know of off hand -wait for someone with a FSM to chime in.
As for the red and black wires, they should be for the cigarette lighter, unless it possibly is for the CCR, which I doubt your car has. Also, what does your RPO code sheet say -FE1, FE3, FE9??? The RPO code sheet is on the black plastic spare tire cover in the trunk.

Sorry if it sounded like I wanted to get TC for my car. That was not the intention, I was just making sure that it wasn't supposed to be plugged into something.

I am not sure what CCR is...and I will check my RPO codes later.

i can tell you for sure that those wires aren't for the CCR--that takes a four-wire plug.

There are two panels that will come out of that cubby space, one on the bottom and also on the back. If you take off the back plate you should see the backside of the accessory/lighter. I think mine was orange and black, but it could just be a difference in years.
