Default Unknown wire??

Hey guys, back again...I was looking under the car the other day and noticed a wire that was never installed...Just dangling there....When I put the engine in not too long ago, I guess I forgot about that wire hanging there...Any ways its right next to the oil pressure sensor under the engine.....If I recall, it’* a blue wire (I could be wrong)....

Something got snapped off on the end of this wire.....This single wire is somewhat taped to the oil pressure wire lines that go into the oil pressure sensor...

I think it’* a ground, but I could be wrong.....Maybe this wire is causing my idiot dash lights to mess up. and my tranny...(previous post).....I went to ondemand5.com and looked up all the wiring diagrams, but still can't figure it out.....Thanks Ryan

Blue is knock sensor. Look around the diff cover of the trans. You should find the other end.
