If your grounds are not good, the car is not going to start. Some people add more grounds that needed for the car to start.

So far, 3 grounds are needed for sure. The wiring harness ground, a ground from the valve cover to the shock tower, and one ground from the tranny to the side frame rail.

In my opinion, the reason why people add more grounds that these is because one of the above is not done correctly.

Remember that if for example you try to attach the ground to a painted/coated part of the frame... it might not work. So try to find clean metal areas that are not coated.

Hondata grouding issue

I did this and made a grounding kit.My ground points where left bottom valve cover bolt,i grounded all the coils,i even added a ground to where the ecu is grounded,i put one on the alternator,and one to the frame of body and the change is noticable as far as the lights seem brighter and the overhead bulbs dont dim when opening a window know and the car feels smoother with the a/c on all for 50 bucks,some taco bell, and a lazy afternoon hehe :cool:

maybe this is a good place to ask, how does the charging harness hook up? does it attach in the alternator spot on the stock EG fusebox? like where the old alternator harness was?
