What are these wires?

I was replacing my outside shower with the new stainless version and noticed a pair of wires to nowhere (pic attached) - one white and one purple with a yellow stripe. They had crimp connectors on the end. I only got millivolts on the voltmeter but didn't try every switch.

Amy idea what they are? Should they be connected to something? I was hoping the were a 12V supply so I could use then to add a fan to the bedroom. They were right behind the inside shower running along the bedroom heat vent line.

You should have a wiring diagram in your manual. You might check that too.

I couldn't find a wiring diagram in the manual, but after some investigation with a volt meter, the mystery has been solved.
They are wired into the circuit controlled by the switch for the lights in the forward overhead storage cabinet. They must reuse wiring harnesses for various configurations.

The good news is I was looking for a ground wire to install a wall-mounted fan in the bedroom and this one will work well.
