Battery charging ground point

Post by makemywish » Wed Feb 07, 2018 9:58 pm

Stop-start battery.

Where on the engine is the ground point to connect the negative clamp of the battery charger? As per the instructions of the ctek battery charger the negative supply should be clamped to a ground point on the car and not the battery terminal.

Any paintless bolt on the engine should do.

He doesn't seem to believe us -- he just posted the same question on the "pay for membership" QQ site two hours ago!

Hopefully he's got his battery charged now. I wonder if he has the dreaded "Dying Fiamm" syndrome?
