If the wire was connected to the frame them it was probably a ground wire. you need to hook it back up

2005 Ram Cummins.....the battery on the driver side has a small wire running to it. it was attached by small screw to the eng comp frame. Does the other end go to the pos or neg post?

The small wire you are referring to is most likely a secondary ground, so it goes to the negative side. With the weird starting, make sure that the battery posts have good connections and are not corroded, the new batteries may also possibly have lower cranking amp output than the previous battery.

I've found 2 ground straps on my 2004 Kia Rio. Can anyone tell me where anymore happen to be?

Don't get confussed ground straps come from the NEG on the battery and always go back to ground.Witch is the engine block and the frame the tires are rubber so thats the ground .
Things don't work correctly if feed power from the battery with out a good ground .SO in a nut shell connect the ground wires to the engine or frame and see if it fixes the issue

Find starter

You will get better answers if you indicate what size engine this is. A Web search for changing the starter may be found on YouTube or other Video site. This year had common roots to other Years in the Explorer series so you can watch Videos from other years and it should be helpful.

Now if you mean that finding a replacement starter is the problem, the major autoparts stores should have them.

If you still need help finding the starter, just follow the HOT(positive) wire from the battery to the starter relay and then down the body to the frame around the exhaust pipes. Eventually you will find the starter wire connected to the starter.

Have a 1997 Chevy Cavalier LS convertible. Won't start. Battery, alternator and starter all less than 4 months old. Was told might be the ground wire??? If possible or likely, where is it located?

Typically a grounding wire issue manifests itself as an temporary problem that comes and goes. Unless it has been having issues for awhile now and finally stopped starting all together.
So it is possible, it would be the large ground wire coming from the negative battery terminal. It should go straight to the frame or engine. Check to make sure the wire is securely attached to its mounting location and relatively free of corrosion.
If it is going to the frame check to make sure there is some kind of large ground wire that is also connecting the engine to the frame/battery some how and also that its connections on either side are solid.

I cant seem to get my 66 mustang to crank,replaced the neutral safety switch,and the starter relay,batery is good,only the radio and the lights com on.what eles could it be? stumped.

Can you force the starter by jumping the cables at the relay? Using a set of jumper cables use only one wire hook to the relay both sides (the large wires on the relay) the starter should turn the engine now. If not the engine is not grounded to the frame you need to now hook one jumper cable wire from the engine to the batt. neg post and retry, if she spins you need to connect a wire from the frame to the engine and then to the body. Try this and get back to me. .

While driving, truck just shuts off and on in 1-2 sec and all the lights in the dash come on like I just started the truck and resumes like normal.

You would appear to have a loose connection somewhere in the electrical system--battery connections, loose fuses, loose connectors on engine computer, etc. Park the truck with the engine running and start wiggling wires, connectors, fuses around the engine compartment. Look especially at various ground wires attached to the frame or body. Check the body to frame grounding cable--a woven wire cable.

Econoline fuel problem, One tank works better than the other

i would put a fuel gauge on it and check to see if it good or not, your frame pump is what give the engine exactly what it needs. The tank pump only provides fuel to the frame pump. So if the tank supply pump was not working, you would not have any fuel.

I have a civic with an jdm h22a swap in it with a garrett turbo, I switched out the plugs and the wires and then i put the old plugs in bec i found out the new ones were garbage. I was driving on the...

Clarky0717 - Many aftermarket plug wires do not make a good connection in the honda motors. Sounds to me like either there is more to what you have installed, or the plug wire is shorting out or not making good contact. I suggest NGK (Honda OEM spark plug wires) or use the original equipment.

Kimberly600 - You have a ground issue either at the (-) terminal of the battery, on the engine block or just above the transmission on the frame. Clean the terminals and make sure the ground cable from the battery to the engine to the frame is making good contact.
