YJ misc electrical

Couple of quick questions.

I just bought my first wrangler. In the form of a 94 YJ. I'm in the process of trying to give it some of the tlc it deserves. Part of this was ripping a whole bunch of old non functioning audio equipment. Two questions. I removed the head unit and an aftermarket amp. Disconnected the amp power cable from the positive battery terminal. My question is. What else do I need to be aware of to make sure there aren't any other live wires around? There are a couple from the wiring harness I cannot find the source of.

Also, in the process, I came across, what I am assuming is the wiring for the rear window defroster. Has a wrirng harness at the end. I currently don't have a back window and was looking to cap these wires. Can anyone share the proper procedure?

I apologize in advance for my naive nature of my questions. Thanks

Also can anyone tell me what the red wire which is connected to that bundled green wire is? As well as the yellow one. I cannot find the source to either. Assuming black is ground and the blue when is tagged as a remote wire.

Yellow is the main, always on, positive battery cable. Red is the switched ignition wire that turns the radio on.

Sorta what I was figuring. But after searching a bit, most said main was white pink or purple for the YJ.

Well I don't know what the yellow wire is tied into, but that's an aftermarket harness I would assume which is why the wire directly out of the harness is yellow.

Take a circuit testing tool and start poking around to see what is HOT with the ignition off and key out. Only real way to tell if the PO did some shoddy wiring.

All about that unibody life.
