Default Ground wire on hood??

I just noticed that there is a wire that runs from the hood to the body of my PT on the passengers side. I also noticed that the wire had come loose from the connector on the hood. I plan I getting a new connector and fixing it this weekend, but in the meantime is this wire important for anything? Will anything be affected by this not being connected?

Thanks.

My suspicion is that might effect radio reception. I don't think it's too important. The hood can pick up a static charge.

I had that ground strap break, how I don't know, but I went to the dealer to get a new one and he said it would be $ 52.00!! I told him I wouldn't give him $ 52.00 for a hundred of them. I just spliced the old one back together again.
