loose wires

There are 2 loose wires in my engine compartment. One of em has a spindle of copper wire in a cap at the top. The other one has a orange-reddish wire and blue wire that lead to this connector which is retangular. Anyone know what these are for?

I have a 1983 300sd the blue and red wire combo comes from the area close to the tachometer unit towards the front drivers side of the car. The other seems to come froms the middle of the car. It was hanging down by the oil pan.

I think the one on top is for the a/c high preessure switch and the other one near oil pan is for ac compressor.
