Help identifying cable on left/driver side left panel


Mar 6, 2019
I finished installing power-folding mirrors this weekend and found a missing connection in the driver side instrument panel cover on the dash. This wire/adapter is velcroed inside the dash and I haven't found the connector. I've looked through the service manual and haven't identified how this cable is used.

Does anyone know what this white cable is used for, and do you have a pic of the male connecting cable? You can get to this part by opening the driver side door, then using a trim tool to pop off the panel that faces the door. '

Thanks in advance for any help!

The picture is not very clear, but the shape of the connector makes me think of coax cable. (perhaps to connect an antenna.)
You mention a service manual. Does it cover 2017 and inwards? If so, can you point me in the right direction to get a hold of it? (I found a connector left and right in the footwell behind the kick panel and also have no idea...)
