Where are the ground wires located on my 1998 Ram pickup?

Asked by Jun 14, 2015 at 10:27 AM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 ST RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

There is absolutely no electrical connection getting to the starter motor. This happened all of a sudden. The battery is good with a full charge. The only thing I can think is that the ground is corroded and needs to be cleaned up so I need to locate the grounds to clean them off.

there are usually 2 ground wires between the back of the engine and the truck body near the center back. The main ground comes from the negative post down along the fender to the frame
