    They are the heated seat switchs.

    Black + green - heated seats
    blue - Traction control

    The wiring is in place for them, as its the standard loom fitted to all cars. Very few cars without a TC switch, have a full TC loom fitted. Those that have the plug under the console aren't necessarily fully wired up.

    Its easy to fit the loom and switch though, full hot-to guide on here, parts cost about £30-£40. Of course you need working TC on the car already though, fitting the switch just allows you to turn it off

    Yeah you have it then. So if you get the loom and switch you will be able to disable it. Very easy to fit it all.
