The negative cable actually is bolted to the engine block, and the positive cable will go to the solenoid that is attached to the radiator support. On newer models, the solenoid would be attached to the starter, and then, of course, the positive cable would connect at the solenoid down below on the starter.

How to tell the difference between positive and negative battery cables on a 1964 Mustang Battery?

The positive battery cable will be going from the positive terminal of the battery over to the starter solenoid. The negative battery cable goes from the negative battery post to either a bolt on the generator upper bracket or the side of the engine block. Typically, the positive cable is red, and the negative is black, but people do all sorts of odd things to their cars, like have the wrong colored battery cables, so, go by how they are routed, not by what they look like.

When connected to the cable which normally runs to the starter it completes the circuit. Electrons flow from the negative terminal to the positive terminal.

How do you fix the red positive battery wire if it has broken off?

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
