2004 XS. Could anyone tell me where this ground wire attaches? It is just hanging loose and I cannot find a connector for it.
Thanks - Bill

It goes to the engine case. It looks like it was pulled out of the connector housing. There should be another wire like that, coming from the engine case, with a black plastic housing. There's another one of those on the other side of the engine to the frame. :wink:

Awsome. Thanks. As a matter of fact we had the engine replace last summer.
I'll go look for the wire.
Thanks again - Bill

That was my other question... if the engine had been removed. Basically, it's a ground from the engine case to the frame, one on both sides. The factory has a connector... a quick disconnect, for when the engine is removed. All you need to do is to run a ground wire from the chassis to the engine case & you'll be good. :wink:

Done. The new used engine didn't have the wires, so I just fabbed some up for both sides.
Thanks again - Bill
