Earth Problems

Post by bfg on Tue Sep 14, 2010 10:55 am

Has anyone had problems with earth connections. My back lights and dash board lights keep cutting out (sometimes when I switch between dip and main), the left indicator flashes really fast and sometimes the starter won't cut in when the engines warm or will just click. Battery is fine and I've remade the battery earth strap ensuring it's got a good bond with the chassis. Is there anymore earth connections elsewhere that anyone knows of?

Havent looked on the hijet, but most cars have 2 earth straps.

One from the battery to the chassis, and one from the engine to the chassis.

However, some cars earth the battery to the engine, and then run an earth from that to the chassis.

I take it you found a place to fit the earth, attacked it with a wire brush/angle grinder to make it nice and shiny, and then attached the cable?
