[DML] Re: Inadequate DeLorean Grounding Identified (Big Red Circle)

Or you can just make sure the connection is clean and tight. This is called "Single point Grounding" and is rather common. The problem is when it is not a good connection and instead of grounding to the frame (and ultimately back to the battery) the electrons still want to go somewhere so they "backfeed" into the other circuits attached to the same point. Makes for some weird symptoms. For the sake of discussion I switched the way electrons flow  but as Martin points out,  it makes no difference which way they go as long as you realize it must be a continuous, uninterrupted circuit. Ben F had it right, convention is just the other way, like driving on the "wrong" side of the road. It is what you pick it to be. Just like positive and negative or negative grounding. Ultimately I don't care how many connections or how you make them, if the connection is not good it won't work. You can fix what you have or you can "improve" it. You cannot discount my full answer because you found a minor flaw in my example. Consider the frame the "Ground Bus". Make all of your connections to it and make sure they are clean and tight. Another major ground point is behind the radio in the console.
