2000 X5 Engine Ground

Purchased a 2000 X5 late summer and starting to work on the issues I have found with the boat. The PO didn't take exceptional care of the boat, but did all proper maintenance. Upon changing the oil for winterization I found a random wire & cover which looks to be a ground. The only thing is I cannot trace it back anywhere. Can anyone point out where this should go?

BTW- brand new to TT, although I have stalked this site for years. I am reworking the entire boat as I probably overpaid for it, and am going to make it my baby. I have tons of questions which I can't find in the discussions / threads / posts.

That boat better get out and thank you daily for getting rid of that fram filter and putting on a WIX..

Some wires just don't go anywhere.. put the key in the on position and put a volt meter on it and see if it reads anything or put it on continuity and see if it is a ground...

while in there replace the cap/rotor/plugs and wires... they are original..

another opportunity is to check the battery cables usually at this age they are in rough shape and preventative replacement now keeps things good next year...

What engine is in the X5. I have a 2000 Prostar 195 with LTR engine. I can look at mine and tell you, however, I will not be near my boat for another few weeks.

Thank you for the suggestions. The engine is the predator 310hp tbi. Any information is appreciated. I plan to swap out the wires from the plugs to the battery. I have read numerous posts about what to use so I'll spare you that question of what you prefer.
