What is this harness for on my '08 400?
I can't find a connecting cable.

For the optional alarm? I can't quite make out the colours from that pic. Compare them to the alarm connector shown in the circuit diagram.

You do the look up and comparison, OK? Circuit diagram in the usual place:

Sorry Jim, but I searched the wiring diagram and couldn't find any matching harness.

In your place I will watch very closely the rear shock absorbers

its in the right place to be the seat release module wiring. but I cant remember if that one was more square.

There are six wires, so it's a 2x3 row connector. It would look more square (well, 2x3 rectangular) in an end view.

The visible colours do seem to match the alarm quite well...

I checked it out: 8 wires
So it looks like the anti-theft preset as Jim suggested. What is this attached to when used?
