Help identifying broken cable on V-12 1989 XJS

Can anyone tell me what braided cable is to?

Thank you for your help

Can’t really see too well. Could it be the cruise control cable?

I suppose that could be the cable from the accelerator pedal to the cruise control actuator. The cruise control actuator and cable in my wife’s 1990 XJ-S convertible are circled in yellow in the attached picture.
Does your cruise control work?


Thank you for the replies. That was exactly what it was.
