please, I have a land rover 1993 200tdi defender and can't find anywhere on the internet to tell me where the earth connection to the chassis is, or even what it is. I have just seen it mentioned a few times about reasons for batteries to overcharge if the alternator isn't the problem. Many thanks,
Jack

Hello dear customer, my apologies i am having some problems and i couldn't get online before.
Do you still need help?
Have you checked near the transmission for the area of the chassis?there is a ground.
The other earth is the one that is next to the negative terminal of the battery that is a short cable that goes from the battery to the chassis right there.
