Just noticed this cable thing hanging low enough that it drags on the ground.  I know nothing about cars, but I know this isn't right. :)

2004 Chevy Cavalier.

Cut it and see what stops working.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!


It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!


Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.


How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Don't know, but I'd duct tape that thing back up until I found out.

I want to say it could be the parking brake cable. Does it "Y" out towards both back wheels at a certain point?

That's not a parking brake cable, it goes up into the engine compartment.  It looks like wiring to me.  It could be running to the oxygen sensor but it looks a bit long for that.  I would strongly suggest getting that put back in place or at least off the ground as soon as possible.

I'm voting it's something electrical. Dragging it is probably a bad idea.

"Speaking of which, there's another elitist prick that argues constantly on the Politics forums by the name of dohdough. He's a complete douche, but at least he keeps his posts in that cesspool of useless opinions. He gets my runner-up nomination."

Thanks for the nomination for the Most Memorable CAG Villan 2012, Blade!
