Is it a bad ground?


Asked by Aug 30, 2017 at 02:25 AM about the 2000 Ford Mustang

Question type: General

I have a 2000 mustang GT (hers) and last few
months it randomly doesn't start. Alternator
charges, battery good, starter is on point always.
She may have to jump it twice in a day, it can sit 3
days and bust off with no hesitation. Car always
makes her look bad cause never shows issue when
I drive it. 2 times now it has, both times I pulled up
to get gas, cut it off. No music or anything, pump
gas turn key and nothing... No clicks, no starter, no
lights , nothing! Hook up cables and instantly
cranks. May do it next day, may be a week later..
sensors and computers not my thing, always
worked on older stuff.. could it be grounding out??
Where do I start?

Fixed... Well, found. There's 2 small group wires. One on body an inch from battery, one to terminal. They both go into back of a plug. Grabbed plug power came back.
