Angry where does this wire go???

Hiya everyone,
BMW 318i 1994
E36
M42
While messing around today with my 318i, i came across a loose wire, hanging down from two other wires.. I have tried to work out where it's meant to be connected to but have had no success.
Heres a picture of it:


There are three wires:
one goes to the throttle position sensor
the other goes to the airflow meter
and the other????

Thanks in advance..
Tom

Hi,
Thanks 4 reply.
There are no wires attached to beneath the airflow meter. but i cannot see where that loose wire would connect to.

I have an m44 and that looks like the wire that goies into the air box on the side. not sure but i have to think that it monitors air intake temp?

Yep Airbox...

Yep, look on the side of the airbox. Pretty sure it goes to the air intake temp sensor. But if not just move it around to everything and you should find a socket within it's radius that needs something plugged into it.

nope, took airbox out and looked all around, the only thing that goes into the airbox is the lead to the air flow meter (shown in the picture).
I cannot see at all where this lead goes.
