    Do i need a Fuse Distribution Block for the Ground?

    im splitting a single 1/0awg into x2 4awg. im also using a fuse between the battery and 1/0 awg power. i already have a fuse distribution block for my power.

    do i have to use a fuse distribution block for my ground if im already using a fuse distribution block for my power?

    [no]

    We fuse (+) wires because if they get cut and touch ground anywhere in the car they instantly become a heating element, just like the one in your oven. If they're fused, the fuse blows before they have time to heat up.

    If the ground wire touches ground you just have a shorter ground and multiple grounding points.

    to answer...no you don't. If ground touches power the fuse on the power will pop. If ground touches ground *shrug* that's what it's supposed to do

    no need to fuse ground wire
