DSP ground location help ASAP

Hey guys my radio and turnsignals when out a while ago as soon as i removed my tail lights, i taught it was a coincidence but i looked at my DSP amp and i noticed a screw holding the tip of a pin that has a tiny piece of frayed wire on it that looks to be snapped off,seems like a ground, this makes sense why the radio etc does not work, however i cannot find the wire that goes there,, any help??? color of the wire or location?? please help,,greatly appreciated
