SOURCE: ground wiring

you have many grounded devices in your engine. the main ones are probably the battery ground and the alternator ground. Look at your battery, there is a Positive side (Red/Power) and there is a Negative side(Black/Ground). There is a short wire that runs from the Neg side to the wall of your engine area, it has a ring connected to a bolt. thats the ground wire. there is a similar wire on the neg side of your alternator which should be easy to find if you know what to look for.

SOURCE: I have an electrical problem. When unhook my

IF YOU UNHOOK THE NEGATIVE CLAMP FROM THE BATTERY AND YOU STILL GET A READING FROM NEGATIVE POST ON THE BATTERY TO THE FRAME YOUR METER IS COMPLETING THE 12 VOLT CIRCUIT AND THAT IS WHY YOUR READING 12 VOLTS ON YOUR METER. SOME BATTERY CABLES HAVE A SECOND GROUND FROM THE CABLE TO THE FRAME BUT IS CONNECTED AT THE BATTERY POST SUCH AS A FUSEABLE LINK WHEN YOU DISCONNECT THE CABLE YOU DISCONNECT THE GROUND. IF YOU HAD A SHORT AND READ 12 VOLTS THRU THE GROUND YOU WOULD DEFINETLY SEE SMOKE

Full and oil gauge work on and off I think its bad grounds where would the ground wires be


Essentially, a "ground" is an electrical connection to a common return in circuit. In automotive terms a ground is a connection to the body or other metal surface of the vehicle. The body in the RX-7 is connected to the negative terminal of the battery. Thus any connection to the body of the car is a connection to the negative terminal of the battery. Electricity flows from the positive of the battery, through the circuit to do some work, then back through the body to the battery (technically electrons actually flow from negative to positive but that is beyond the scope of this article). This is a "negative ground" system which is by far the most popular automotive ground scheme used in the automotive world. "Positive ground" systems were popular in the beginning with all car manufacturers and continued on in British vehicles until recently.

The main reason this is done is to greatly simplify the wiring of a vehicle. Since most car bodies are made of metal (at the very least almost all frames are) they provide a perfect ground plane, eliminating the need to run a separate ground wire to each circuit which almost chops the amount of wire necessary in half.

Can you tell me what a grounding issue is more specifically and what system in the car does it relate to?


A grounding issue relates to every electrical system in you vehicle. All the electrical components require electricity to be able to make a round trip from the positive post on the battery back to the negative. The negative is commonly known as "ground" or "earth". Ground wires can usually all be traced back to attach to the body or frame. So too the negative cable from the battery. It usually attachs to the frame, body and engine.
If you are having an issue with your ground the most common causes are poor ground or broken wires. Ground wires are almost always black, occasionally brown. A lot of sensors and switchs will ground through their cases. To chase down a poor ground remove the wire from its connecting point and clean everything up with some sandpaper or emery cloth so you have bare shiny metal contacting bare shiny metal. It can be tedious and time consuming but a lot cheaper than paying a mechanic to do it. Hope this helps.

In 12 volt DC automotive electrical systems black is always the ground wire or negative. Make sure you disconnect the battery before doing any electrical work (unhook the negative cable first). Don't splice into any wires under the dash, use a piggyback fuse connector on one of the accessory fuses eg; cigarette lighter.
