On a 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXi Convertible, what is the smaller black wire that connects to the positive jump post?


Asked by Feb 20, 2014 at 10:57 PM about the 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXi Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have had a battery drain for a while on the car and now it turned into a dead short.  
The good news is that when I connected a new battery it heated the smaller black wire
that connects to the positive jump post.  When I reconnected the wiring I omitted that
wire and everything seems to be fine except the power brakes are spongy (may be an
unrelated issue, possibly the brake booster is inop).  The headlights, interior
accessories, engine, and transmission all seem to be working so where does that wire

Does your car have traction control by chance?

Give me a few min to look it up

Rear window defogger, via circuit breaker, or power top to pump motor. Try googling schematics or stop by a parts house its important or chrysler wouldn't have put it on the car.

Yes it has traction control.


The power top operates properly.
