Question about Nissan 300ZX
Should there be a separate ground wire that attaches to the chassis that is connected to the negative battery cable?
On most Nissan products, the ground cable is bolted to the body before it gets to the engine connection. The large cable handles both connections. There may also be additional ground wires between the engine and body.

the cable coming off the starter is the postive (+) cable not the ground cable. thats why its not truning over cause you have now power going to the starter. run the cable from the stater to the (+) side of the battary and i bet it will start up

First, be sure that there is a ground strap, cable or wire from three spots:
1. from neg. side of battery to block
2. from block to firewall
3. from firewall to battery
The above will give you a good ground. You might also want to add a ground from one of the above to the vehicle frame just to be sure.

I am about to have the same problem with my 2002 ZX2. My shop called the Ford dealer and they can replace it for $450.00...
seems like an awful lot for a battery cable.
