Default stupid wire question

I went in to check my starter and pull it out, do not be fooled it is easy to unhook but good lord is it hard to shimmy out.

While under the car i saw a stray wires. coated with black casing, and it was white.

What is the wire too, it is under the car and hanging....it is on the alternator side below the wheel. the alternator is my next project. I noticed after i took the wheel off, that the alternator wheel had a peice of liner gone. The liner that covers the wheel base area. It looks like it is 1 foot area, and only reveals the alternator wheel. anyhow another topic...

any ideas to what the wire could be, is it a ground strap? and if so where does it belong........

Does the wire have a connector at the end? If you want me to guess, oil pressure sender.

I am not familiar with 9k's prior to model year 94. Another possibility is the oil level sender as there is one on the sump prior to 1994.
