Default Looking for Power in Center Console

I thought it would be easy to locate a 12VDC source once I pulled the cup-holder/switch piece out. Not so. Can anyone help. And by the way, what are the two unused connectors in there?

Do you have a 12v socket behind the armrest? My 03 does. Perfect 12v source.

I bit the bullet and removed the center console today, so that I could tap into the console power-outlet supply line. Not as hard as I'd feared; not as easy as I'd hoped. The results are that I now have powered switches which will feed additional goodies (e.g., DRLs).
