What are these wires here

Hi all,
There is a plug with a bunch of wires under the front passenger seat. Does anybody know what that's for? Also, under the second row, there is a sort of an electrical box that looks like you can plug extra components in. Does anybody know what that is also? Thanks.

I would have to guess that the plug and wires under the passenger seat has something to do with the air bag. The electrical box under the second row should be the computer for the 4x4. Cant remember the exact name of it.

Lots of possibilities, pictures would help narrow the options.

If you have either a powered passenger seat, or an occupant classification seat, that's the harness for it. The occupant classification seat weights the passenger for a three stage airbag deployment. (Off, soft, medium, hard)

The box under the passenger rear is the satellite radio receiver. The other side is a body computer.

I have a "Limited" and the yellow plug appears to be the seat warmers.

I do not have the second black box installed in my Commander so it must be an option which I do not have.

I think that second picture is the 4WD control/Final Drive control module. If so, then you definately have one. Its located under the second row seating.

Well I have nothing in the slot shown in his photo, I might have it someplace else but I would not think they install them in multiple locations.
