    Hey guys!

    First post and I am looking for help already lol

    I have a 2012 double cab sport and was wondering what the wires
    are for on the blank plugs on the dash where the
    aux plug is located. I pulled the plugs to add heated
    seat switches and noticed wires on the dummy plugs.
    Any help is appreciated.

    It's easier to have a universal wiring harness then it is to have different ones for different models. So those switches are there for the plugs that are there on other models.

    Hope that makes sense

    It does. I was just wondering what the plugs were for on other models.

    Do you have after market seat warmers or do they make OEM now in the 12s?
