PostSubject: Engine ground....   Thu May 31, 2007 4:04 pm

I re-installed my starter the other day but I kinda got stumped with the wire harness. So it was pretty obvious that the large power cable with the red sleeve went to the + terminal on the starter. Then the small ground wire goes to the small - terminal on the starter.

Now all that is left is another large Neg cable. It has to be some sort of engine block ground, but I am not sure where it ties into the engine. There are a few empty screw holes down there. Some are on the trans and some are on the engine block.

Does anyone remember off hand where this ground goes? scratch

Where does this ground connect to the chassis? Or is it routed through the harness?

It is a big fat ground, like 8ga. I didnt trace it.

I was doing some searching on clubgp. It could tie in to the trans bell housing. Someone make a vauge comment about it.

I feel stupid asking, because I could check my other riv. But I live in a stupid town home community. I have a short driveway, and I cant drive the car up on ramps in the street.

Any pics? I see a large cable on mine from the back side headed down toward the bottom part of the engine, but can't see where it connects.

Hey everyone I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I can find all the major grounds for the 95 rivi. I looked through the manual and I can't find specific locations anywhere. I just need to know where to look.

Also. Whenever I press the brakes and let off my gas and temp gauge move back and forth slightly as I push and let off the break

IIRC not all ground locations are shown. In my 1st edition 1998 factory service manual there are drawings showing the significant wiring harnesses, which in turn show ground locations. Again, IIRC, not all are shown.
