Need to be on the engine. An EXTRA to the body is never a bad idea.


If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

Thanks cruiser54.

Is there another reason apart from the fact that it's the 'proper' way to do it?
I'd think that the engine and body are definitely connected to each other (electrially as well), so it shouldn't really matter where you ground it... I'll be happy to hear your thoughts!

cheers!

Yeah there is. The engine and body are isolated via rubber mounts. And, even that crappy strap from the engine to chassis can cause issues. This is based on fact, experience, not book learning.

Are the grounds for the 2001 Cherokee XJ the same as the older models?

I have poured over the posts the last few weeks chasing a "no bus" issues. I cleaned the cluster contacts 4 times. I replace the CPS. I tightened the grounds at the engine strap (it was loose) and looked over all the other grounds indicated by Cruiser54. The vehicle will start and run and no more than 5 minutes into a trip the air bag will illuminate, the gauges will die (first the tach snd speedometer) then the airbag light, followed by the check engine light sonf finally the "no bus" indication.

I am convinced it is a ground issue and aside for the other previous stated ground, I cannot find the ground under the drivers side of the dash above the hood release handle. I am wondering if the gound is located elswhere on the 2001s v. the other models?
