I recently installed a new radio in my 1993 Lumina (sedan). After a few weeks the radio started flipping out. It started turning on and off for no reason especially when I hit a bump. I also noticed that it would do it when the speedometer needle would start fluctuating it was doing it also. I decided to put my digital fluke meter across the the power wires of the radio. It turns out that before I start it, 12.5v +/-. Once I start the car, the voltage drops to a little over 10v. Then the radio starts cycling on/off when the voltage drops below 10v AND the the speedometer needle is fluctuating. With the car off, I took a resistance reading from the radio ground wire to ground of the lighter and I read 3 megs +/-. Obviously I have a ground issue on that wire/cable.
My question is this:can I just run another ground wire to the chassis or connect to another good ground, like the ground from the cigarette lighter, which I have no resistance to ground on, to the radio ground wire and back feed it? Any possibility of damaging or blowing up something? I understand that the circuits run from the fuse block to the various equipment/devices. I just do not know how the ground or negative connections are run. Are all the ground wires run to a central location or are thy run to the closest point to a chassis ground?

Thanks in advance for your input.

Have to tried jumping a ground wire to the radio to see if it solves your problem?

Yes, that was the problem. I would have liked to have fixed it at the source, but that meant I would have had to trace it physically not knowing where all the ground wires are terminated.
If anyone happens to know where they are please let me know.
But that fixed multiple issues-The erratic speedometer, the erratic fuel gauge and the radio.

Thanks.
