Should I hook these or leave them disconnected?
Do you have Volt/Ohm meter? If not get one. Sometimes free with coupon and ANY purchase at Harbor Freight ©.
Meanwhile set the Volt/Ohm meter to Ohms. Hold one probe on the White Wire and touch the other probe to metal such as the frame. The meter should read 0.000. If not repeat the process with the Black wire.
As an alternative, follow the white wire to under the vehicle. It should be attached to some metal such as the frame.
NOTE: USUALLY the colored wire, Black/Red is Hot or Positive.
The wire that tests 0.000 between it and metal frame is your Negative/ground. Connect that wire to Negative Battery Terminal.
