    Anyone have any guesses for what this black connector is for, it is not hooked up, is a 4 port but only 3 wires (black, green/red,red).
    This is right at windshield in middle. The other 2 connectors, right and left, are for the lights that are beside them.

    Tesla told me several times (before the car was released) that they are working on a collision avoidance system for the car. Could that connector possibly be for a camera or other such device that would be mounted at the rearview mirror height?

    Noticed this a couple of weeks ago when I was doing my dash cam install. [Blackvue DR400] I have a question in to a friendly service tech to try and find out.

    I purchased a BlackVue DR500GW-HD Wi-Fi Dashcam from BlackVue - LUXURY BLACK ($279 free shipping). My installation experience is in the link above.
