Hello, i'm wanting to know how to run another ground wire to transmission stud. I seem to be having some kind of ground trouble where as all the lights on the dash come on, the radio shuts off, a/c shuts off, windows wont let down, and fog lights are blinking rapidly. I saw that the negative 2 or 4 gauge wire that goes to the transmission stud was frayed because of the motor mount. I was told by a 2carpros specialist that I can just run a new negative cable straight from the negative side of the batt to the transmission but this isn't working. So I would like to run another ground from engine block to tranny stud but I need this to be easy as possible for to do. Which route should I take to get a great ground so my wife can drive the car without to much worries. Please help me as I cant pay for anything at the moment. The g 101 strap that comes from transmission stud and goes to engine block is the ground that I speak of. Thank you so much.

Geta piece of 10 gauge wire and run from battery to body and engine to body you can run off the stud if you like.

As of now I have it from neg. Battery to tranny stud, where do I go from here? Car is cranking fine I get 13.89v at the batt and 14v at the alternator. Yet none of the acc work. I need a walk thru, maybe like a hold my hand walk thru lol. Sorry and I hate to be a bother, but I feel like it's something simple but my mind can't grasp it. Thank you

I can't give you a picture but near the battery on the body there should be a ground wire there put it there you might see a stud on body or bolt. If you are unable to do it take it to a pro. We don't have pics for this. I've given you enough info already

Well I definitely appreciate the info given. Ok, so I have negative batt cable going to transmission, and off of the same stud a ground going to firewall right next to the batt. Is this correct, if so the problem stated in my first post still exist. Also just realize that there is a relay that is ticking like crazy in the fuse box under the hood. It stops ticking when I remove the relay with the key in the acc postion and when cranked. The relay is to the front windshield wiper hi/lo if this help any. Is ground my problem?

Hard telling it may be the relay or a short going to wiper causing that. This shold be looked at by a pro to see what is wrong.

Thanks, I'm hoping it's not the IPM itself as I have been reading in other threads. Thanks again!
