Question Loose Wire w/ Connector In My Trunk. Please Identify.

I found this loose connector today while cleaning my trunk. It says: "AMP 962 125-1" on it. Does anyone know what it's for? "Amp" meaning for the stereo? But everything works fine on it. Any help would be appreciated.

"AMP" is an abbreviation for "Amphenol," the manufacturer of the connector.

Just open the Battery + red cover and you will see that you can plug this connector somewhere here.

This connector is used to cut down battery + in case of accident to prevent fire.
