    Okay so there are three ground wires that run together right in the middle of the firewall and one of them is cut and I can't find the other end to this wire ? Is there anywhere that has a list of ground wires for a wrangler or what ?

    I'm looking into this for both of us. Of the 3 wires I believe you are speaking of, one is a wire and the other 2 are grounding straps??? The ground wire from that group comes up and towards the drivers side a bit, where it then feeds into the black wire bundle which runs side to side across the top/back of the engine compartment. No idea where the wire goes from there. One of the ground straps runs to the rear drivers side valve cover bolt. The other ground strap is my issue, as I found it not connected. Will be researching where it's supposed to go. Let me know which wire you are having issues with.

    I know where the two ground straps go I figured that one out but I can't figure out where the third little wire goes? And did you say you didn't know where the ground straps go ?

    Sounds to me like you want to know where the lone wire goes once it enters the wire bundle? That I cannot answer at this time. I'm a couple weeks out from ripping the wire bundle apart. Wife wants to take it for a ride before I disable it for OCD cleanup. Coming soon though. Could you tell me where the other ground strap goes??? Thx in advance.
