Angry unkown dashboard plug

Took apart the dashboard so my boyfriend could replace some things and of course had to unplug every single plug. However upon reinstalling everything we are unable to locate where this one plug(pictures attached) goes. He works shift work so here I am trying to find some answers! Suggestions are appreciated! Thanks in advance!

What are you working on? We can't see the rest of the vehicle through the Internet.

If I had to GUESS, which is all I can do with the information provided, I'd say it's for a trailer brake controller.

That's not what the brake controller plug looked like on my 97 F150. I had the Prodigy BC and the pigtail was a 6 hole plug, but only had 4 wires in use. It also has the round style plugs, not the flat style.. But, no idea on the truck you are showing us either...

Have you started the truck to see if it even starts and if it does, what works and what does not? That plug does look like something that should have a mate...

Good luck!

Mitch

Sorry I had to make a second post when It wouldnt let me post as a guest! Ford F150 5.4 V8.
No it is not for the trailer lights.
it is under/behind the dash located in between the radio and glove box.
Thanks!

On my 2001 the trailer brake controller connection is by the obd code reader hookup right of steering wheel and above accelerator.

That doesn't look like the background of the speedometer cluster, but the pic is super small.

If we knew the year and model as asked it would really help, all we are doing now is guessing.
