pcm install

I have a 2004 grand cherokee 4.0 that i am fixing to install a pcm into. My question is does the pcm have to be bolted directly to the firewall for grounding purposes?,or can i install rubber groments behind it to cut down on the vibration which could cause one to fault.

Re: pcm install

There are two dedicated ground wires in the C1 connector (31and 32), but not sure if isolating the housing would be a good idea. If you really want to isolate it, i would put a ground wire to the casing.

If you isolate it, the only difference would be that you might want to run a small, short, ground strap from the case to the mount.

Since I dunno if mounting it to the body is done as an RFI protection, make it a short, wide, ground strap.

You might actually create more vibration if those rubber grommets allow it to slop around, unless you have something like silicone or similar. Not saying its a bad idea, but it could make things worse.
