Where does it go to on the backside of the engine?

If it is really broken, then there should be the other end somewhere in the vicinity of the other end.

Up close pictures can help too.

If I'm honest, it doesn't look stock from what I can tell in the pic. My guess is that someone installed it aftermarket, or self done most likely. I also think i spy what looks like a fuse holder near the battery.

My guess is that it is a dedicated electrical run, for something like lights, a horn, etc. With that guess in place, my money is on it going to the firewall, or at least it did.

I would check lights and everything to make sure everything is working. I also agree that more closer pics would be a great help.

I'm surprised that it is. That small one is the vacuum line that goes to your HVAC control head. It'* what changes from floor to vents to defrost etc. Do they actually work right?
