Mystery wires?

I was under the right hand front corner of my 1999 S430L, removing a stuffed horn, when I noticed some wires just hanging there, as in the picture. What are they for and/or what am I missing?

Hi peter, just a few initial thoughts, is this part of the factory wiring loom? from what I can see it looks like it might be held together with electrical tape, in which case it could be old wiring from an old aftermarket alarm system (the wiring to the siren which has since been removed?).

Looks factory, apart from where the ends were cut off. The loom is wrapped in cloth tape, consistent with all the other wires in the area.
