New to the Escalade family and trying to familiarize myself with the vehicle. Does anyone know what the phone jack on the inside of the front armrest is for? Hoping it is a way to hook up a cell phone through the onstar but......it is probably a way for techs to run diagnostics. Any input would be a great help.
So you have a phone jack in the armrest? In a 2000 model escalade right?? THat is very interesting, do you know if it came factory like that?? I am not doubting you, I just dont think that my 2000 has one; but, I have never looked either. Could you tell me where in the arm rest it is located so I can check and see if I have one there too.
it is in the center console, the part that flips towards the passenger side, it is used to hook up the factory cell phone which is factory mounted in the center console which flips forward... if you look in the flip UP part there is a hole in the back, and a wire was run from that hole to the phone jack.... looks like an ethernet wire, not a phone wire to me though
You are right it does look like an ether net plug. There is no hole in the back of the top console but a hole in the side that is plugged with a small piece of plastic that is easily removed. Do you know if a hands free kit is installed will it work through the radio like onstar.....and to escalade20002003it is on the right inside console. if you had one it is in plan sight. and yes i believe it is from the factory.
