Yesterday the car wouldn't start in the morning, but started up fine in the afternoon. Then this morning it started, but when my husband stalled it out accidentally, it would not start again. The engine turns over, but won't start. I opened the hood and found a loose wire (see picture) and i'm wondering a) if that's the culprit and b) where it should get plugged back in. I should mention that this is a Euro spec vehicle. Thanks for any suggestions.

That is a fuse and is not original on vehicle. Shuld be for an after market component or modifiations. This should not be the cause of non starting.

You would need to find out what is missing causing the non starting. The link below explains how to go about.

Gas / Diesel? What engine code (3 letters under a bar code, usually
on a sticker stuck to the timing belt cover)?
