I think you just have a dead battery...nothing more. That wire is something that did not cause the problem, just a coincidence.

Weren't you saying just the other day that the battery was going out in the Mustang?

try the new battery before freaking too much. If you're still having weakness occurring, test the alternator

battery failed horribly. so all set with a yellow top optima, MAN THOSE THINGS ARE HEAVY.

tested the alternator and it passed with flying colors. oneday i hope it dies so i can throw a 250 or 300 amp one in.
