Most likely the other side is connected to the feed to the
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.
