E34 Engine HELP!! Or, "Shouldn't this cable be connected to something?"


I just joined Bimmer nation recently. I was cleaning the engine compartment and noticed a throttle-like, or actuator cable dangling. Don't know what it is, don't know if I knocked it loose while cleaning. I haven't and won't try starting the engine until I decipher it.

It runs just under the the throttle body, I think. See pix and tell me what you think.
  • One pic is from below the tube;
  • one is from the drivers side, the others from the pass
  • The attachable end of the cable is just behind and above the fan (NOTE: THE FAN SHROUD HAS BEEN REMOVED IN THIS PIX):
