1997 Dash panel - what's there?

Morning y'all. Yesterday I pulled the center dash plastic cover off to see how I could mount my stereo up there. Behind the cover I found 3 plugs with a variety of wires coming from behind the dash. Each plug end has a little green light bulb (covered with an orange cap from the factory) that illuminates with the headlights. In addition to the three plugs there is a light yellow box fixed to the inside of the dash panel with a variety of wires leading into and out of it.

Anyone know what all this is?

That makes sense. I thought I read someplace that alternate stereo wiring was stubbed out behind there so I went looking for it. Wonder what the box is for in there?

Exactly! At least that the three switches that are in our '97 SW. Backlite wiper / washer / heater.

Isn't that just the turn signal relay? Or do you mean the one that randomly chimes when you open the door, or leave the headlights on?
