    Wireing Block Help

    Tonight i was traceing a wire from the boot to the front of the car and i had to remove the front nearside kick pannel and i come accross a wireing block with nothing connected into it.

    Car is an Astra G, 1.6 16v SXI 5 door on a 53 plate.

    Will get some pictures up of the block tomorrow but any one have any idea what this could be?

    Waits for autosparks.

    Its not for the central locking, it was just behind the kick pannle not connected to anything.

    Thanks your help Autosparks, nice to know what it is.
