Interesting speculation ... almost as good as unintended acceleration ... 

1) The unit has Bosch 250KPA unit being replaced by a VMAP. So that means the 
wire was there before.
2) The programming cable is a lot more elegant and has active components 
built into it and the likelihood of anyone having one of these is one of 5 people 
at this point - the ones who I know have these cables and have done the 
installations also do a professional job.

This looks more like a wire to bypass a faulty diode based upon probably a 
previous chip tuner ... and or transient damage repair do to jumping starting 
the car incorrectly ... if it is ... the component should be replaced.

Best regards,
