    E30 323i engine loom - what is this wire?

    If any of you guys know the euro 323i loom, take a look.

    At the end of this part of the loom is where it connects to the 4 sensors on the thermostat - Temp Time Switch (Brown connector), the Bosch coolant temp sensor (orange connector), plus 2 others.

    But what are the two thin cut wires for? I'm not sure if the loom was always this way when I got it, or if I broke something 13 years ago when I disconnected the loom. Even if the loom was always like this since purchase, it could mean previous owners have butchered something.

    The other half of one of the cut wires looks like a connection spade.
