Jma20a its very rare to have a safety tether that acts as the ground, so 99% of the time installers don't know about it.

CaptainYesterday I can't match it to the wiring diagram, so they must have ran it somewhere else. I'll just tuck it back where it came from!

Jma20a If its an aftermarket unit installed at a shop most of the time they will run the ground to a different location

CaptainYesterday Thanks!

Now I'll just retrace all those wires to make sure the one tagged 'ground' is matched up to this one.

What is this wire behind the stereo?

have a 2001 Wrangler and I need to identify this wire behind my stereo. I have no clue where this is supposed to be plugged in.

It is a flat, silver braided wire covered in foam/insulation. It appears to originate behind the instrument panel on the left. The end of it is connected to a small black wire that isn't hooked up to anything.

It doesn't appear to be the ground wire - a different wire is tagged ground.

I posted a pic in the hopes someone can identify this thing and tell me where to stick it! HA!
