That looks like the starter solenoid wire.
You will have a wire bolted to the starter to provide cranking current. The one that is loose takes the feed from the ignition key.
Rust does not discriminate

Thanks Michael,
I have a maroon wire connected to the starter motor which corresponds with the wiring diagram.
So, I'm still trying to find out where the red wire goes. Cant locate it on the wiring diagram.
Would great if anyone knows wher it connects?
