XJ battery strap from neg post to chassis?

I've been having issues with a lot of electrical stuff on my XJ: windows barely move up or down, door lock switch doesn't lock or unlock anything, painfully slow wipers on both ends, blinkers don't blink all the time, cruise control and headlights work when they feel like it, etc.

Took it to the shop today and they suggest a battery as a starting point (OK. Got 4-5 years on this one) and said I was "missing the grounding strap from the neg battery side to the chassis."

I've had this XJ since new in 88. It's NEVER had a "grounding strap." Huh? Does this help electrical issues? Was it supposed to be OEM? Legit claim?
