#1 Positive ground to negative ground on 3.8 OTS

Post by Echezeaux » Sun May 10, 2009 9:37 am

I want to go, positive to negative ground on my S1 3.8.

Lots of it has been talked about on other forums, somewhat in contradictory manners !! But I wonder if you need to swap connectors on the instrument voltage regulator ?

Has someone on this forum been down this path ?
I am scared of sparks and smoke !!

Thanks in advance.

Thierry, do a search on the Jag Lovers site. This topic has been well documented there and I believe you might even find a step by step guide as to what to do.

There is a link to the step by step guide in the 'Recommended Specialist's' thread but here you go: http://www.jcna.com/library/tech/tech0023.html

Providing your car is standard (i.e. no after-market changes) it is a simple job. The radio causes most people the biggest grief.
