So my cars epc light came on and kept shutting down the car after about 3 hours looking it over I found a plug under the car had been broke and was just sitting there the switch is located above my starter and on the transmission I’ll attach the pictures of what I found but after bandaging it up I was able to get her home check engine light is off as well as the epc

but I guess my question is would this cause my car to crank and run ish but die instantly

If pin 1 of that connector shorted to the chassis, I could see a brownout condition occurring. Other than that, not really.

Pin 1 of that connector runs through fuse 7 (10A) to the ignition switch. The fuse would have blown before any damage could occur to the ignition switch.
