Default Wire Under hood - Where'd it come from?

Here's the situation:

I noticed a wire beneath the hood, appears to to a ground wire leading to where I can't discover. The location is passenger side near the antenna outlet and below the window cleaner reserve. I think this wire was tucked under a seam and somehow loosened itself to be visible. I've had the AC purged recently.

The car is 2001 2.4 with 116K.

Any ideas?

I am glad you asked that because mine came off earlier, but couldn't see how it linked to anything other than it connected between the hood and and frame of underside. I thought maybe just an earthing wire.

Time for you to invest in a CD set or paperback Factory Service Manual for your PT Cruiser.

You might also start posting pictures?

Might be the hood grounding wire. Here's a picture of mine. It broke also so I added a new wire.

+1 on the grounding wire per CREWZIN's photo.

And here's a link to a free 2001 thru 2004 PT service manual.

I don't know if this link is working correctly, it asked me to take an AT&T internet survey.

+2 on the hood grounding wire. Same thing was up with mine when I first bought it.

These cars have grounding wires in various areas.

Yep. I tried it before posting the link. It worked just fine for me.
