    Big 3 Honda Accord 02

    Hey guys I have a 2002 Honda accord sedan model with the 2.3l engine. Anyways I had a couple questions on the big 3.

    Where is the best place to ground the neg batt to chasis? Just in general what bolts to avoid putting it on

    What is the engine block to chasis ground? Where is the best place to start said wire? This I am very confused on

    Lastly, do I need to do anything special to the grounds to ensure no rust and future problems, I know I have to sand first, but do I need to silicone it or what have you?

    Thanks a bunch guys!

    you can reuse the factory ground on the frame and on the transmission housing.

    i'm strongly against suspension bolts or any bolt that is holding on a bracket or part. grounding bolts should perform that function only. i sand away paint/corrosion then bolt. after that i protect with silicone to prevent water ingress and the resulting rust.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Re: Big 3 Honda Accord 02

    Ok got another question, how do I protect the wire from the heat and what not, I have heard of using high temp split loom, would that be adequate? Thanks

    Just follow your current factory runs, and bolt on the new wiring where the old wiring is. Use ties to hold the wire in place. As long as it's not touching an exhaust manifold or something, the wire will be fine.

    Re: Big 3 Honda Accord 02

    exactly, my build log (link in sig) shows examples of routing in an 01 Accord (but with a V6). i always use high temp split loom (available at any autoparts store) for all power and ground wiring in the engine bay. route with factory, secure with factory, and protect like factory.
