I'm confident that this wire is a ground between the eec and the battery. This is done bec there can actually be potential differences between the chasis and the battery. and bec the sensors run on very little voltage, this is necessary for accurate results.

pretty cool huh?

So yea, leave that wire alone.

No start huh?

Do you here the starter solonoid clicking?

Does the starter make noise?

What is your battery voltage? it is discharged?
