    Is the truck a first gen body style?
    If yes it is a antenna cable for a cell phone that was used for onstar service

    Ok then that's not the onstar system antenna cable
    I will look at my service manual and see if I can find out what it is

    Re: Random loose connection

    The first picture is pretty blurry and I can't tell if that is a button or a connector. Button could be a kill switch from an aftermarket alarm. If it's a connector, it looks like a BNC connector which is likely used for video feed. Perhaps aftermarket backup camera ... Are you sure it is a stock connection.

    Looks like a coax cable, definitely not factory, maybe from some sort of previous security system

    Could be an antenna for the alarm system if not some kind of mobile tv tuner add on for a aftermarket radio
