Wiring: What is this for...

Fixin to begin to get started hooking up 2 new LED lights on my 2007 Sportsman 800. I've been putting it off, I hate automotive wiring.

So anyways, inside the front cargo area, under the cover where the fuses are, there's a wiring harness that goes to nowhere. It looks like this...





The part# is rubbed off. It's just sitting there, just wondering if it's anything useful.

Maybe a prewired winch hook up?

That was my first thought. What else could it be up front? But I have a factory winch.

Looks like a red, green/white, and maybe a brown wire.

Could be. But I'd expect more wires for that.

Really? I have no clue. Just thought it'd take more.

Now that you mention it, I do recall jumping just two terminals on my old S-10 to make it give up it's codes.
