iminhell I've played with wiring in 4 generations of Fords that I've owned. It's always the same, just goofy as all hell.

Nope.
Missing that ground prevents lots of the normal things from working properly.

sgtsmasher Yea im going to clean it up a little bit, change the stock wires to the ones i got at advance. I got 2 72" 4 gauge wires brand new positive and ground. And i have left over amp cable that im going use also to increase the electric flow, ill get it, hopefully lol

grayzx35speed In this case I agree with everyone else, if it ran before you parked it and did.your hack job, then now you have funny electrical issues it is most likely somewhere in the wiring you did.
