Re: Where does this wire go to?

I've seen that wire before on my car, on the passenger side, I'm almost pretty sure that it has something to do with the glovebox light??

It's for the glovebox light. You'll need the special housing for it. The notch on the terminal is for one of the "posts" on the base of the light bulb

Re: Where does this wire go to?

Be sure you insulate or tape-wrap that terminal until you connect it to the glove box lamp - it's "hot" all the time.
