What is the term "ground" in Automotive?
Is it a common link in a circuit or something along those lines, I was told? I thought "Ground" was basically any conductor connected to the battery's negative side, for example the battery negative terminal is connected to the cars "chassis" or 'frame" basically the "chassis" or "frame" would be considered ground because its metal frame acts as a conductor to negative side of the battery. The"Engine" is connected to the frame also, that's a ground also. But I'm told I was incorrect.
Now, I'm told that its basically to drain its energy. If it is near something with a live current, grounding it relieves it from being a threat.
have the same problem?
