Default Dashboard wiring question

I took the dashboard off my 1928 and saw a red wire behind it that is disconnected. Anyone know where it should be connected and a reason someone would have disconnected it? The car does have electronic ignition installed in the distributor and I am pretty sure the ignitor is wired to the ignition switch.

I'd suggest tracing it and see what is on the other end. Any number of things could have been done over the years.

Pictures would help too.. :-)

I found it. It's not connected at either end. Thanks cpf240 for the comment. It seems the ignitor for the electronic ignition system replaced the red wire in the original harness.
