were does the small wire from positive terminal connect in the back of the jeep–just hanging down
How about a little more info?
Did you get the jeep as a pre-owned vehicle?
Is it possible to post a photo of dangling wire?
What color is the wire? Any colored stripes? Any connector/terminal?
In the back of the Jeep?
Where in the back? Luggage area? Rear passenger area? Tail light area? Under rear bumper? Near a trailer hitch?
How do you know it’s from a positive terminal? Did you test it?
I’m going to guess that the wire is is the small wire at the terminal that connects to the Positive battery terminal.
If that is the one, it should follow to a fusible link that runs to the back of the alternator.
This wire is where the current flows back to the battery to charge it.
