As built, DeLoreans aren't grounded worth two cents.

Both of my cars have been regrounded from bow to stern with 4 gauge battery cable:

BTW: long standing community lore that the instrument cluster is grounded via the radio bracket is incorrect. The instrument cluster is grounded via a junction behind the central HVAC plenum:

If you want to improve instrument cluster behavior, don't try to do so at the radio bracket -- won't work.
