No I found that on someone's thread and remembered when I had my panel off that there was an empty socket there. I thought it looked odd.

Not necessarily, that means that yours have a port like that under the glovebox...

Ok, I checked the panel under the glovebox and it's not there. Is it possible they removed it on MY09+?
