A good ground is typically a cold water pipe. The cold water pipe is required to be grounded to the electrical service in nearly all buildings. Since cold water pipes are often in contact with hot water pipes in steel sinks, water heaters and furnaces, etc.; a hot water pipe - whether for heat or domestic use will also work. The same holds true for gas piping. Electric appliances fueled with gas have their pipes connected to ground via the electrical cord and electrical service. You could also obtain a "3 wire" cord cap from you hardware store, and connect an wire to the ground terminal of the cord cap, and plug it directly into a grounded electrical outlet to obtain a good ground. If you do not ground the wires, the noise will likely be worse than before at the wire acts like an antenna for other noise sources. You may also have luck connecting to the ground terminal on many of the older amplifiers - as many turntables required ground, too - and this was the method used.

Good luck!

Can I just cut the black wires coming out of old switch and connect with wire nuts to black wires of new switch? And cap off the ground wire from new switch since no ground on old switch?

You could do that but it would not be up to the electrical code requirements. Take the old one out and remove the wire nuts and put the new one in. There should be a ground wire stuffed in the box somewhere. Unless the house is really old. You connect the ground wire to the bare ones in the box.

I have brake light and horn problem

you have a hot short between the brake light or horn wire. It is touching a ground somewhere. Trace out both wires to ground and see if they are not touching somewhere. It may also be a short in the fuse box? May be brake pedal sensor is shorting out. Or the horn has a short to ground.

Is there a fuse for the water and oil in my ford 150 truck

Well, not a ground wire for the gauges per say. The gauges are grounded thru their sending units. Could be a ground problem for the cluster or dash wiring, or somewhere in the engine compartment.

When the on/off switch on the handle is put to "on" the main fuse melts within 1 second.

There is a hot wire going into the switch. Somewhere at the switch or after the switch the power is going to ground. It could be a bad switch ( they all gotta go sometime ), or an abraded wire is grounding out on the frame somewhere after the switch. Check the switch with a multimeter and check the wire coming out of the switch.

Usually you can attach a ground wire to any bare metal spot. Just find a screw somewhere that goes into the bare metal frame and it will be grounded.

Where do i put my ground wire at ? do i attach it on the stereo somewhere or what? i cannot remember i recently wanted to put my cd player back in my vehicle just can't remember where it went ...?

The frame of the vehicle is ground, the metal enclosure of the radio is ground also. If you have a ground wire coming out of the radio and you don't see the ground wire from the vehicle, then attached it to the cars frame.

Blowing both amp fuses

Then you must have a short somewhere , either your main power cable has a pinch or short somewhere , it is not correctly installed , your blue or amp turn on wire has a short, the vehicles battery has problems or a charging problem from the cars alternator. Try all of a cheap test light at an Autozone or Pepboys put the grounding clip to a 12+ Volts source and put the test light tip to the red power cable that powers up the amp, if the test light bulb turns on then you have a short somewhere and you would have to trace the cable from battery connection to the amp connection for any accidental grounding or pinch wire.

Good luck.

Good luck.

Starter wiring

That wire probably goes to the transmission inter-lock. That prevents the car from starting if in any position other than Park.
