Hi All,

My 2006 E60 525i has been sitting for a few weeks while I have been replacing multiple coolant hoses. The battery is dead and will not start even when jumped from the terminals under the hood. I tried taking the battery out to slow charge it with a battery tender but again when I reinstalled the battery the car would not start even when jumped. I might need a new battery, but is this normal to not be able to be jumped from either another car or battery pack?

Also I had a question about a loose cable I noticed when reinstalling the battery. I just want to make sure it wasn't supposed to go somewhere and I definitely don't remember deliberately unhooking a cable when I removed the battery. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The loose cable is red/blue in the pics, and doesn't appear to connect to anything within reach
