What is a grounding Block that is in the frame that holds all the wiring together?


Asked by Crcliffe Jul 30, 2019 at 10:55 PM about the 2012 Ford Escape Limited AWD

Question type: General

I heard that a grounding block in a frame of a car can hold wires that are non
conducting and sometimes be where a problem is when the vehicle hits a
certain spot or temperature and can cause all sorts of problems. That each car
is different where they put this grounding block?

1 Answer


Grounding wires are conducting. Grounds complete the circuits. They must be corrosion free, clean and tight.
