Re: garage service panel
When wiring a sub-panel, you'll have to run a ground as Jack describes. But you'll also have to have separate neutral and ground bus bars in the subpanel; the neutral and ground should NOT be tied together in the subpanel. Also, the neutral bus bar should NOT be bonded to the frame of the panel, but the ground should be. The only place ground and neutral should be connected is at the main panel.
