Default 1986 Alternator question

I recently moved my battery to the trunk and ran 4ga wire from the orange and black wires off of the alternator to the starter solenoid. However. There is a third wire at the same connection that is broken off from my connector. Where does this wire go. There is power coming off of what is left of the wire but, I can't find any place that looks like it should be connected to.

You should have done a 3g upgrade to run to the trunk. You will also need more like 1-2gauge wire to run that far. I recommend 1 gauge stranded

The white wire runs to the smaller plug on the alternator.

Jay, he didn't say he ran 4ga wire to the trunk. Read what he posted.
