Re: 2014 not even 100 miles and issues

Did they happen to say where the ground wire is located that if someone wanted to try this themselves instead of taking to the dealer?

You aren't paying attention.

"This main ground is located on the passenger side directly under the computer modules an towards the middle about arms length down attached to the frame."

Re: 2014 not even 100 miles and issues

According to the mechanic the nut was at the top of the threaded bolt and it was getting intermittent ground. When they pulled it into the garage bay it wouldn't even turn off at first. Apparently, the truck I have must have been on the assembly line then the bell rang and everyone went home.
