I have a 99 pontiac grand am that has a negative ground wire…

Customer Question
I have a 99...

I have a 99 pontiac grand am that has a negative ground wire coming from where the battery is hooked and can't figure out where it goes. Could you by any chance help me

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

It's not and yes it's good I just need to know where that wire needs to go

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Am yourself? What have you tried so far?

Connecting it to the frame and yes
