What is this wire in my engine compartment?

Took off my battery today to charge it and noticed a strange wire that's not connected to anything. It's a red wire that's about the same thickness as the postive battery wire. But this one has a clear seethrough dome with what looks like a bulb in the middle of it.if you follow the wire it leads to the bottem left side of the firewall. Do any of you know what this wire does or is?

Amp power wire, if they did it correctly they should have wired it with a new battery terminal connection.
At least they thought to unhook it before they unhooked the amp and let the hot wire flop around.

Sadface :(

amp power wire made by rockford fosgate. it hurts nothing by sitting there, just coil and zip tie it out of the way
