Am now working to repair my 400E and am removing the headliner to do roof work. After pulling the front overhead light and switch panel off, there is a bundle of a few wires into a plastic housing, wrapped in foam and pushed aside. Not used. What is this for?

Maybe it's for integrated phone which is optional on W124?? As I remember it right, the phone control bottons panel mounts just below overhead light control....

Thanks for the post. As I was removing the seats today I noticed the cable going into the drivers armrest and it also had the same type of insulating cover and plug. Didn't know this feature was on this car but now I know it does. Wonder why the former owner had a Nokia setup wired in if the car was factory prewired.
Thanks again,
