Most likely the other side is connected to the feed to the ECU or multiplex module. If it is, then it will be there to protect against spikes when the power is applied. (the reason that some people advise to have your sidelights on when you change the battery as the bulbs will have a similar effect). Unusual to have it located away from whatever it is protecting though, as the suppression would normally be designed in to whatever it is protecting.

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
