The positive battery cable runs from your battery to your starter and is pretty easy to replace(Depending on vehicle). Hopefully if the positive isn't attached then the negative cable has been removed as well. Follow your positive cable from your battery down through your engine bay and it will lead you to your starter - this could be at the front of your engine block or at the rear underneath. Then all you have to do is replace it, making sure you connect it to the starter first then the battery. If it's just the battery terminal, the connection that actually hooks into the battery then all you have to do is un srew the nuts on each side of the terminal and replace it with a new one. Then reconnect it to the battery positive first then negative.

duct tape it

no it can not start with a broken spark plug wire unless you fix it

The repair of a broken wire will depend on where the break is. If the wire cannot be replaced then it will have to be spliced together, preferably by soldering. The wire joint then needs to be sealed with a waterproof coating.

Try wrapping it in electrical tape... depending on what is wrong with it, remove it from the battery and clean the terminals, splice the wire if broken, or remove it from where it connects on the other end and clean and reassemble. a ground wire isn't that big a deal.

it depends on whats broken. open it up and take a look. is something is broken odds are you can fix it by reenforcing it with glue and wire

An open neutral means the neutral wire is disconnected or broken. You will have to remove the outlet and find out which is the case. The wire may also be broken.
