Spare connector under centre console....
« on: April 28, 2017, 05:21:23 PM »
 Hi everyone,

Been playing about in my mazda today, found a spare connector under the centre console, curious as to whether anyone knows what it's for?

Does your car have heated seats?

No....I wasn't aware that the mk1 3 ever had the option, it does have the full leather interior though?

Have seen someone mention it's for the auto transmission wiring but both cars have the same harness so could be that...

Perhaps the gearbox I have seen apparently some markets had a heating option if you bought leather. It's in a similar place to the heated seat switch on my mk2.
