AC compressor questions...please help

I'm trying to get my AC system working as it's been 90+ over the last two days. While looking into diagnosing, I found two things that are kinda weird...

First: there is a small bolt on top of the compressor if you're looking down at it from the front of the engine. That bolt attaches to a single wire. This wire broke. Does this wire go to a power or a ground?

Second: again, looking down at the compressor from the front of the vehicle, there looks like a solenoid or switch that screws into the left side of the compressor. The switch/solenoid is the type like the AC pressure switch (located by the drier/receiver) I can't make out if there is supposed to be any kind of connection going to that switch/solenoid. If there is, where is it going to?

I looked in the Helms but it's useless if you don't have the right wires where they need to be.

I'm talking about the switch circled in white and the single red wire in the black jacket circled in white below:

What I'm asking is if you know where the wire goes and if the switch has wires coming out of it and where it connects to?
