Lil Help? Electric cable by control arm.

So, last night I found this cable dangling down by my control arm. Looks like it got caught up and shredded the housing and yanked the plug loose. 4 pics to see. If you need more ill post em. Any ideas?

Possibly the ABS wire. Did the light come on in the dash? Got a better pic of the plug?

it's getting dark. my mini flash light wasn't so great. but here goes.




The green electric tape was from me wrapping it around the control arm so I could move the jeep.



This is where it leads...

I know the TJ's wiring & very modules pretty well but your photos are exasperating, they are not lit & the shadows make it tough to figure out what it is you're taking a photo of, especially that last photo. If your camera doesn't have a flash on it, put a table lamp up inside to light the area up. If it has a flash, turn it on.

Green electric tape was me mending it so it wouldnt hang down. I unraveled it a bit so I can take the pics.

Is your Jeep a Rubicon? If so, I'm thinking it might be the wiring that goes to the air compressors for the f/r lockers but it's hard to tell.

Interesting. The cable either goes up or forward. Can you see what it might have connected to?

Ive looked all around. Can't figure it out. I don't want to pull on it because it's connected to that tube

On a Rubicon, there are two very small air compressors that power the lockers mounted on a bracket on top of the transfer case skid plate, at the rear near where the rear driveshaft connects to the transfer case. See if both compressors are connected to their electrical cables.

As jerry posted above, It is the wiring for the electric pumps etc for the air lockers. Runs from the compressors (mounted on the tcase skid) to a clip on top of the axle center section, the clip will be bolted to the top of the diff cover.

K. I'll check it tomorrow when there's enough light to figure everything out. Any idea what this would cost to fix?

If the plug isn't broken you can repair the wiring.

Other wise, you may be able to pick it up from daveysjeeps.com or the dealer ship.

The wiring in question looks like the sensor wire that lights the "front axle lock light on the dash. It illuminates when you lock the front axle, It penetrates the axle housing near the airline fitting. You should be able to buy just the sensor and replace it.
