Doing a long rehab and have two ground wires I have forgotten where they hook to. First one is the shorter/smaller wire off the negative battery terminal and the second one connects to the firewall near the coil - has a connector half way down the wire. See Pix's Thanks

Yep. if that ground wire that supplies a dedicated ground lead from all the high impedance engine sensors back to the ECU is not attached to the back of the engine, you don't start. Period.

could someone take a clearer picture of the ground by the coil, there's a ground that looks like it connects to the back of the transmission housing that leads from the harness around the coil, its not grounded and I'm trying to find where it goes, thanks guys!

Hope this is what you're looking for. 3rd pick the the ground wire on the firewall behind the coil. It goes to the distributor pic 2, I don't think my location is the factory but seems to be working fine. The third pic is a wire I haven't found the mate to. Should go to some connector in the harness - so I've been told - no can find. Sorry but the systems wants to post the pics alphabetical.

the monolithic component with 2 wires that is bolted to the coil bracket is a diode. it's purpose is to shunt half of the wave of an ac component as well as flyback spikes from the coil to ground.

it helps to remove whining noises from the output of the radio, too. :wink:
