Battery wire

Hey y’all this is probably a numbnut question but I realized the wire coming from the two battery cables, the one that connects in the middle by a fuse, and then follows a wire with a little plug on the end (small male/female plug) has fallen out and I don’t know where it goes!! Geez Louise. Please inform if you know where that cable wire leads to because I’m stumped and wiring diagram isn’t helping much. Thanks guys.

completely lost by your description.
Negative battery cable connects to frame below the battery box
Positive battery cable connects to starter relay where main fuse resides..
There are no inline fuses in the Rebel wiring scheme off of the battery..
below is an image of top of 2nd generation Rebel starter relay w/main 20A fuse..

If you can take a photo I would have a better idea of what you are talking about..

Ya Its an xtra wire between the two that’s connected in the middle by a 7.5 blade fuse. Idk it’s probably made by who I bought it from. But long story short I turn the key on yesterday and absolutely nothing happened including the lights but I realized that that piece was unplugged even though I don’t think that’s the reason for the dying. Thanks for trying to help..i used multi meter on battery it’s at 12.5..and put a new 20 amp blade main fuse off the positive side there but I’m getting nothing.

aftermarket, looks to be domestic (US) automotive connector..
Honda never used that type of connector but Ford did..
Radio, lighting, any number of possibilities..
Have similar setup I connect my battery maintenance trickle charger to..

Edit: the 20A fuse you replaced, was it the one on top of starter relay?

That is the standard quick connect battery pigtail cable assembly that comes with most Battery Tenders and small trickle chargers to facilitate charging the battery without removing the battery or opening the side cover...
That wouldn’t connect to anything except a battery charger, and would have nothing to do with the no-start problem.

That is a SAE plug.

When in the garage, I attach the trickle charger.
When on the road, I have a USB port, a cigarette lighter type plug, and an air compressor, that could be attached into it if needed.
Hope this helps.
