Sorry Siggyd...Navy says electron flow is from negative to positive and hole flow (in a transistor) is positive to negative.

Come on, everyone knows electricity runs downhill. Until it gets to ground!

Yep. AF uses positive to negative flow.

There's no neutral in a DC system, where did that come from?

Unless you know positively where the loose wire is attached safest would be to attach it to a known ground.

Reverse ground sounds like the intention of the system is a passenger vehicle, make sure nothing is behind you when you back up. You want to watch your towed when you're going forward so constant ground is what you need.

Exactly... the OP needs to have a multimeter and know how to use it if he/she is going to work on anything electrical or electronic.

With the multimeter the OP can put the meter on ohms and measure the continuity between that wire/connector he's talking about and any metal part such as the steering column mounting bracket.

Otherwise just forget about the wire and run a separate ground wire from the monitor to any screw/nut/bolt that you can get access to on the steering column bracket.
