What are these wires?

Pulled of my instrument panel to replace bulbs with LED's and noticed these 3 unattached wires.

Figured one of you guru's will recognize them in a split second without me needing to trace them.

Any ideas?

Probably part of the instrument wiring. Dash light +, key on + and a ground. An extra for different type guage used in another application. You can follow them back to their connector and use their colors with a wiring diagram to find out exactly.

Im thinking they are for a aux fog light switch? I remember using them in the past. but my memory is getting bad.

you could run a test I think they will get power on low beam only, but its been awhile since I messed with them .

There are 2 'spare' light connectors behind the dash of a 97. Both are blue but with different color traces. From memory I think one is Orange (high beam?) and the other Grey (low beam?). Those might be your blue ones. The red one I have no idea but if it has a white trace then its a dash illumination source.

Like Ed says though, put a meter on them and start flipping switches to see when they power up.
