on the fuse box where the starter runs to there is a connection right next to it. there should be a white wire that comes from the alternator to that spot from the main engine harness. Did you hook it back up?

That ground wire is supposed to go: - battery terminal to frame rail (under the battery tray) to the clutch bracket. If it isn't connected to the frame rail, alot of the car's electrical bits are being forced to ground through the valve cover wire.
ELD is the electrical load detector. It is a sensor built into the fuse box that tells the ECU (engine control unit) how much power the car's electrical system is using. The ELD error code is common when there is an engine or ECU grounding issue... The ELD itself doesn't have any moving parts, so it rarely wears out.
