Looking thru the new to me 2012 EX. Noticed a random wire tucked near the lower pivt of the glove box. Red and black wire that looks to be inside "factory" looking casing. Both ends wrapped with electrical tape.
Any clue as to what it may be? Previous owner claims to have no clue.

Glove compartment light, something for an alarm or something for ICE(In Car Entertainment)?

Looks like the aftermarket shenanigans of a power/ground supply. Check fuse block on the driver's side to see if they tapped into a fuse; if so, you should be able to remove the whole line, but they may have tapped into some OEM wiring along the way. --Might even have been something as simple as a "kill" switch.

It is the now removed ejection seat switch. It was installed for passenger to eject driver so you can see why it was removed! 😋

Passenger side air bag off light working?

Yup, ait bag light OK. Does appear someone tapped into the wires just below the fuses. Same grey wire casing that is in glovebox, and runs towards the glovebox from the fuse box. So presume at some point, something else was there.
