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

With all due respect, you are guilty of the very thing of which you accuse me:

I clearly wrote "cars contemporary to the DeLorean." You even quoted my words in your reply. I guess you quoted them without reading them. "Contemporary to the DeLorean" means 1981 model year, not any 21st century model year.

As soon as I get back from some errands I will scan and post the wiring diagrams for my 1981 AMC. It has exactly *ONE* capacitor in the entire car, on ignition.

And yet, for some reason, all of the other electrical devices on the car do not send its electrical system into a tailspin....

My 1981 AMC does not have a capacitor on its windshield wipers.
My 1981 AMC does not have a capacitor on its turn signals.
My 1981 AMC does not have a capacitor on its blower motor.
My 1981 AMC does not have a capacitor on its headlight switch.

By virtue of increasing the wire size between all of my 1981 DeLorean's ground junctions, I have effectively given my 1981 DeLorean an electrical cross section comparable to my 1981 AMC.

If the 1981 AMC wiring diagrams aren't enough to convince you, I have 1979 Lincoln wiring diagrams I can scan and post (I'll give you a sneak preview -- they only have one capacitor as well, on ignition).
