Possibly for a Battery Heater? I know my '00 had one and it's in the right place.

That looks like the connector for the Daytime Running Lamps Module which was required on Canadian-spec Rangers of that year. It is in the right general location. The DRL connector (without the module) is also present in some U.S.-spec Ranger harnesses of the same era.
