Where does this wire go? Cig Lighter not working either

Hello,

Well my dashlights went out and from searching on the board, it was suggested to put a jumper on the dimmer switch to see if that is faulty and mine is, so that needs replacing. While I was under there I came across this purple white stripped wire which looks like it has a rubber vacuum looking head? Any idea? Is this causing my cig lighter to not work?
I checked the fuses, my radio works fine just not sure what else to look for.

Other odd thing I found was a switch just to the left of the cig lighter is that factory or alarm add on from the PO

On the lighter, there is a small stub in the center of the backside. That wire slips onto the stub.
