Anybody know where these two wires should connect to?

Or could someone possibly take a picture of where theirs leads to?
Just found these two hanging out and not attached to anything... I believe one is a grounding strap. There are two straps coming from that nest area - one goes to the back side of the engine up against the firewall and is connected, the other is free.

The other black wire has a connector on the end and I cant find anywhere that has a receiver for it. No clue what it is but I'm sure it is there for a reason.

The ends are circled as are the area they come out of.

The ground strap goes to the center of the bottom of your hood, and the connector is most likely for an under hood light....here's a pic.

There's a little sensor inside the feels when the hood opens and turns on the light.

The underhood light's switch most probably need a good cleaning. Furthermore while the hood is up and the light is burning it needs just about a smell of water to blow the bulb.
