Where do these connectors go!? [Footwell area]

I removed the footwell trim on the driver side and passenger side, as well as the glovebox as part of removing the dash.

When I went to reassemble it all back together, I am left with a few connectors for which I can't find their home... arggh... Please see photos below.

There's a pair of small connectors on the driver's side (light blue and red color, on the left of the footwell area).

Then there's a single medium size connector (black color) on the passenger side, near the passenger left foot area.

If you know what these are for or where they connect to, I'd really appreciate the help! Thanks.

The big one looks like it will fit the green round connector. Is it the glove box light connector?

Yeah, the big black connector seems like it would fit into the big green device. However, they are on opposite sides of the car: the big black connector is on the passenger side, and the big green device is on the driver side :-)

The black connector is also not for the glove box light and also not the passenger footwell light. Also, it is not the connector for the power plug near the footwell.

One thing I learned, put tape on any electrical wire disconnected! Some options are not installed and wiring is there. I like to use yellow and orange tape.

Ah... Yes, using colored tape is a great idea. Gonna keep that in mind for future projects.

The big connector looks like the flashlight charger connection. It also doesn't look (from your pic) that it was plugged in, as I don't see any scrape on the female connector

EODguy: Thank you! I did not think about looking for scrape marks on the connector. That's a great way to do detective work!

Also, yes, I think it may be for the flashlight. This vehicle didn't come with the flashlight in the glove compartment, so that would explain it not showing signs of having ever been plugged in.

BTW, if you have the flashlight accessory in your glove compartment, do you know when does the flashlight charge? Is it all the time or only when the ignition is on?

The flashlight plug is key powered. I use an adapter there to power my XM unit. I'll take pictures this weekend.
