Many electrical problems are the result of poor ground connection. You can ensure that ground
connections are good by performing the following steps:
Although battery ground cable must be connected in order to test electrical circuit
voltage, disconnect battery ground cable from prime mover before performing
resistance tests or replacing parts. This will prevent shock to personnel, and
damage to parts and equipment.
Remove hardware connecting ground cable terminal lug to ground point.
Solvents can burn easily, can give off harmful vapors, and are harmful to skin and
clothing. To avoid injury or death, keep away from open fire and use in a well-
ventilated area. If solvent gets on skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap
Clean mounting hardware, ground cable terminal lugs, and ground point with cleaning
Look for cracks, loose terminal lugs, and stripped threads. Replace any defective parts.
Install hardware connecting ground cable terminal lug to ground point. Ensure that all
hardware is tight.
