Changed battery cables, broke ecu ground...

Did my battery cables yesterday and in the process broke the ground on the block for the ecu. Crimped a new eyelet on and replaced, but it was a bit of a stretch to get it on the stud. Jeep starts very nicely and runs great, except there have been a couple times it completely shuts off for a second and then continues as if nothing happened. I'm thinking I need to splice in a new short length of wire and rr ground the ecu and obviously go through all the other ground points that were touched. Anything else this could be that I should be looking at? '98 BTW

Yeah, figure that's the best course (it's the most obvious) just didn't know if it might be something else. Now I just need the rain to stop.😎
