Random wire behind tire?

I just found a random wire that seems to be torn. This wire was located behind the front right wheel. I have no idea what it does or what its connected to. It looks like it goes under that round black part. Anyone know about this?Click image for larger version

Is your ABS light on and does it come on for a second when you turn the car on (ie, does it work)?

Alex is thinking the same thing I am....somebody pulled the bulb or covered it with tape. The ABS light is definitely supposed to come on for a few seconds as a test when the car is started, just like all the other dash lights.
