    Looks like a ground for something. Can you trace it back to something?

    Do you have any CELs (check engine lights) on?

    Agreed. My 07 doesn't have that. Aftermarket. Stupid place for something like that to be there. Probably why it's broken. IE...................Stupid place for a ground connection. IMHO (and looking at the pics... makes no sense at all why it's there :homer:????

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    That's a ground strap broken..

    Looks like someone had a ground issue thinking that was the problem and it was added. Maybe

    Yea- it's some webbing or rope, but sounds like it's after market and I should worry about it.

    Webbing/rope??? I know. It was for mice to play jump rope before they start chewing up your wiring..............In this case they chewed their own jump rope in half. See...I figured it out.
