I pulled out my stock air cleaner box to install an open filter element and low and behold I found a loose brown wire with a round lug. It looks to be about a 12-14 ga. wire and it is attached to a wiring harness below the passenger side headlight. Does anyone know what this wire is and where it goes.

Here is a picture

Not sure, but it doesn't look OE. Maybe an alarm system from a previous owner? May have been running to a siren, or tapped into the lighting harness to blink the lights?
