The battery Cable is connected from the Battery to the Engine. The battery is located under the seat in the Oil Bag Battery compartment. If changing the battery always remove the negative cable first. This helps to keep from shorting out tools to metal.

Location of grounding strap 2004 sunfire?

The main ground runs from the battery to the starter and there are many ground wires throughout the vehicle,but I don't thing this will be a ground issue as the alternator is grounded by the bolts holding it mounted to the engine.It is more likely the internal regulator in the alternator failing in my opinion.

Where is the ground wire of a 2005 chevy venture located?

Hi Tony:
All ground wires ultimately connect to the negative terminal of the battery.
If you look at the battery, the heary wire from the negative terminal will be connected to "ground", that being a bolt to the frame. (Often the alternator bracket)
The positive wires go to switches, solenoids, and fuse panels.
Power goes through those locations to various devices which are connected to "ground", thus completing the circuit.
There can be any number of ground wires since they are required at many locations to complete the curcuits.
Hope this helps.

Ground wire location

anything connected to anything metal on a car is a ground, all metal on a car is grounded unless the actual negative from the battery is failing to ground to the car, and that comes from the - side of the battery should be a black wire.

Ground Connector "G304" location

Hard to believe the ground would be that far away. I worked on my son's '95 Chrysler sedan, and had to find the power windows ground. It was behind yhe trim of the left kick panel, just below where the bundle of wires from the door entered the cabin. You should check there.
If you have a hot wire at the master switch, you can check the ground right from the master switch. Put positive lead of a voltmeter or testlight on the hot wire (key must be on) and negative lead into the ground terminal for the switch. If the ground is good, meter will show battery voltage or the testlight will light. If the ground is lost, nothing on the meter-The chrysler had a broken ground wire right in the door opening, Maybe you already checked and have no ground...the ground is likely close to where the wires enter the cabin. Good luck.

I'm getting juice to the washer fluid pump but it doesn't run. I bypass the wiring harness and hook it directly to the battery and the pump runs. When I put a test light on it I'm getting juice to the...

For the circuit to operate, it must have both battery voltage and ground. If there is battery voltage at the connector, then hook your test light to the Positive side of the battery and check for ground on the opposite (Black) wire. The washer pump grounds at ground # G-201. It is located behind the right sie of the glove box. There is also a splice in this ground circuit. It is located inside the main instrument panel wiring harness about 7 inches from where the harness breaks out and goes to the radio connections. (It could be a bad/loose splice)

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.

Cant find a constant ground connection

Hello deslamer07,

First remove the primary fuse on the 12V power wire.

Run a temporary wire from the NEGATIVE terminal of the battery to where the amp is located. You do not need to make a permanent connection, just wrap the wire around the terminal enough to get a good connection. Use a multimeter set to the lowest OHMS scale and test between your proposed ground connection and the negative battery terminal. A good ground will indicate near "zero" (or very near zero). If you don't get a "zero" reading, try to find a screw or bolt going into the metal of the vehicle. Again, the meter will read "zero" when you have located a good ground. Reattach the amp ground terminal to the good ground, remove the temporary test wire, reinstall the primary fuse and test the amp. If it was just the ground, you've fixed it.

Hope this helps.
