Noob here from Birmingham - question on stereo wiring

Hey all! First post to the forum, longtime visitor.

I have a 2001 Wrangler and I need to identify this wire behind my stereo. I have no clue where this is supposed to be plugged in.

It is a flat, silver braided wire covered in foam/insulation. It appears to originate behind the instrument panel on the left. The end of it is connected to a small black wire that isn't hooked up to anything.

It doesn't appear to be the ground wire - a different wire is tagged ground.

I posted a pic in the hopes someone can identify this thing and tell me where to stick it! HA!

Cool, will post there!
When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
