I'd like to know how to repair a floating ground. I have a 1995 Dodge stratus with an after market alarm system on it. Everything was working fine up until a few days ago when I left my dome light on & the battery drained down. After receiving a jump start to my vehicle my radio no longer works, my dome light no longer works, & my door locks button no longer works as well as my alarm system. Prior to receiving this jump start everything worked just fine, now everything is haywire. You can arm my alarm system however when you open a door the siren doesn't go off. Ironically once the car is started you can lock & unlock the doors using the alarm systems remote control. Also the vehicle won't shut off unless the parking brake is down, however it will start no matter what position the parking brake is in, up or down. A friend of mine told me I have what's called a floating ground, I have no idea what that is or how to fix it.
