i noticed those cords in the picture that are circled in red were unplugged yesterday when i washed it. Haven't ever noticed it before? do they plug into something that i can't see or are they just extra there for attachments? Thanks everyone in advance. hope you can see the 3 pictures i attached, i haven't ever done it before

Those look like the plugs for the backup beeper. They go hot when you go into reverse. Several people use them to trigger backup lights.

That is correct. I should have said "optional beeper". Sorry for not being clear. They actually have heat shrink over the plugs, so they are exactly as they are supposed to be.

Ya, I have read mixed information on the forum about them being hot or not, but my have about 10 volts on them when the key is on but then they go to about 13 volts when in reverse. Being that there is that much voltage there even when not in reverse, is why several people have used a relay to control the lights. Otherwise, depending on the lights that you use, they may have a slight glow to them at all times. Here is a thread about using the relay...

The 12v wire is hot when Key is on, the ground connects when you shift to reverse. With some LED's, there's enough ground to keep them on all the time for some reason. I used a relay and works great.
