Default Battery ground wire.


everyone should replace the ground wire from the battery and run one to the engine. I had dimming when I would turn my stereo up with a subwoofer. This eliminated it and has seem to increase the power to my engine a bt, it is definitely worth it. I was too lazy to the the 4-guage wire myself and had a local car audio shop do it. This is a must do!

I have filled up twice since I had the new ground installed on my Charger and I am not koking but I get now about 20mpg. I do the math every time I fill up and I normaly average about 14.5 mpg and I not get about 19.86 and that was all driving in the city. You all should look into this!!! your engine is not grounded correctly causing the entire ingntion system to run poorly!

Did you run the ground wire from the battery negative terminal to the engine block itself?

Can you pop the hood and snap a pic of the ground. I'm interested where they would ground on an aluminum block, possibly it's grounded to the mouint and in turn the frame.

Welcome to the forum haj90.

I never got further information nor a picutre of the ground. Are you experiencing ground issues with an audio setup or something?
