Good evening:
I found the same cable in my S8. Definitely, it's a power cable, in my case is plugged between the two electric individual rear seats, but I don't find the function. No lights at all, maybe heating?

Cheers

Mistery solved, folks.

It is the aerial for the entry and start authorisation system.

Found this on the service manual 22, electrical system, on page 313



Cheers from Spain
