My guess would be that it is to power a Valentine 1 radar detector. They use a cat 3 phone connector for power. I believe just the two outside wires are used.

I have a similar wire hanging behind my mirror and that's what I use it for.

My guess is that the wire is there for cars with the "self-dimming" rearview mirror. My car actually has the wire connected to the back of the mirror. If you do not have that option than I imagine that you can easily figure out which wire is hot and which is ground and connect to a V1. I have a V1 installed but ran the RJ11 cable through the headliner and down the passenger side directly into the fuse box under the passenger foot compartment
