2004 93 linear 113k

So I noticed by tailights were dim. I opended the trunk and smelled burning wires. The left plasctic connector was RED hot and the black wire into the connector was frayed and appears to be the guilty one. I disconnected it and tried to order a new connector. They are back ordered nation wide. My thought is the Black wire is a ground and the ground must be bad? Can I ground it somewhere else?
