Lots of bad things can happen - like an electrical fire. At the very least - you'll have a dead battery soon. You can pick up a new Pigtail at NAPA or order one from almost any Auto Parts Retail store - or even on line. OR, you could go to a dismantler and get a used one. Please, for safety's sake - don't drive it.
