Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
Since there is no specific part in a wiring harness called "the pigtail". General wire connection instructions are: Cut back the wire at least 1/2" and wrap the wire ends together. Solder the connection so it has good continuity and won't come apart. Use shrink tubing to protect the joint and also wrap with good quality electrical tape, especially in under-hood areas where moisture can get into a connection. NEVER cut or tap into the heavy yellow wire under the dash. That wire controls the air bag system and tampering can cause it to deploy (very dangerous). Never solder wires together by laying them side by side. They will join, but the solder can act as a fuse and cause problems later.
If working with more than one wire, label them so you know exactly where they went so you can put them back correctly. In systems using computerized controls, a mistake can be costly.

SOURCE: Impreza 1997 headlight pigtail
the pigtail is wired into the electrical system off the car an it actually holds the headlight bulb in. you could do this your self providing you know a little about soldering wires and sealing them back up. because you have to cut the old pigtails off and rewire a new one in. its not that hard but you have to make sure that you heat shrink the wires when you are done so you dont get any other electrical problems. Use your own judgment on this if you want to do it or if you want to have it done Hope i provided you with the insight you were looking for on this subject.
please rate me if you would

The alternator is used on many different models. The other terminal is probably a signal to the computer that your car doesn't use. As long as the connector fits, you are golden. Just tape up the end of the extra wire to avoid a short. OK?
