Default Strange black wire under and around fuse box

2006 wrx with 15k miles with no mods when i picked it up last week, or so i thought
Noticed some extra 12 or 14 gauge black wire a previous owner or shop hack coiled up and zip tied under my dash, the wire may in fact be a wire harness that contains three wires in all and goes to various places as i'll try to note here
tonight i tried to trace where it goes/comes from. after removing the change pocket and exposing the dash fusebox I was able to see one lead goes to the small black box above and to the right of the fusebox. the box surprisingly says "mitsubishi" on it but it look completely stock except for the one lead in question which is spliced into it.
from what i can tell it looks as if another one of the is grounded just above the fusebox.
and finally the last black wire runs into the left kick-panel and slices into a stock harness along the door sill cover.
at some point in this mess of wires and electrical tape is possibly a relay taped up behind the kick-panel, but i can't tell without doing further cramping investigation.

I'll post pics for you see what i talking about or maybe you can guess already. LMK thanks -mason

ok i realize my first post was vague so i did some more investigating today after work and took some pics. have come to the conclusion these three black wires might be for the homelink/dimmer rearview mirror. still not positive but the dealer must have installed it at time of original sale... but god the wiring job is terrible (no soldering just clip on crush connectors)
Let me know if you have any other guesses. thanks -mason

here's the black wire connected to a blue/white wire that i thought was connected to a mitsubishi black box. it actually says "integration" something orother..

Here's what i'm speaking of with the three black wires. one going to the black integration box, one grounded, one going to a red wire in the kick-panelharness. they all lead together up in the left side of dash to where i can't see anymore. i'm guessing the a-piller to the homelink

And finally the last black wire grounded above the fusebox.
