    I don't believe that's the obd2 port or the brake controller plug. I only see one or two wires coming out of the plug in the 2nd pic, and a brake controller plug has more wires than that. Also should be a different color and I don't believe it uses the red lock either.

    If I remember I'll look at mine tomorrow and see if I can find them. The first one though doesn't look factory to me. 2nd one almost looks like the plug for an ebrake switch or something.

    The small loom witht eh green, red, blue wires goes to an ignition disabling device. Let me get a shot of that connector without the cover on it. I had someone else suggest that it might be for trailer brakes.

    Ok so tonight after adding some LED's to teh ashtray and cup holder area by accident I discovered that the connector that's plugged nearest the center console has something to do with the comms bus. Unplugged and starting the truck teh odometer area displayed 'no bus'.
