    When I went looking for my switched 12v source in the console, I came across these two unused plugs. One is co axial. Any ideas as to what they are for?

    When I take my car in for service, they plug into the round one and download the data from the car.

    I thought the diagnostic connectors were located under the center cubby below the 17" screen. I've seen them pop the cubby off (or unclip it and swing it down) and go after a connector there.

    Probably right. The pictures to me looked like they were down low on the sides near the floor.

    Not on my car. Far left end of the dash has a door thing. These sit there. Diagnostics. They also have connectors under the 17", but I imagine they are for other checks, like maybe the screen stuff.
