make sure the coil is a positive grounded coil, most are negative ground. battery just hooks up opposite to usual the coil is the only thing u need to make sure of
Yes connect the positive first to the positive battery post, and then connect the negative ground to the engine somewhere and not to the battery.
Center terminal is connected to the positive from the battery. Outside is connected to ground (-).
Connect the positive clip of the charger onto the positive post of the dead battery. If the battery is located inside of a vehicle, connect the positive charger clip to a grounded surface--like an engine block--on the vehicle.
You connect the cables BEFORE you plug in or turn on the charger. Positive (red) to battery positive first, then negative (black) to battery ground. Then you turn on your charger and set the timer.
Connect jumper cables from the positive battery post, on your BMW, to the positive battery post on the charged every. Connect the ground together. Allow the battery to charge for a minimum of 10 minutes.
connect the power and acc wires together and put them on the positive and the ground to the negative
Connect the positive lead to the battery or a spare positive terminal at the fuse panel, run it to the switch with an in-line fuse, run from there to the positive terminal on the horn. Mount the horn and connect the ground wire to ground on the chassis.
no matter what vehical it is, the proper way to disconnect a battery is to disconnect the ground side first ,then the positive side to reconnect it is exactly opposite you connect positive side irst then connect ground side ground side in case your not sure is the negative side of battery
Connect the two 12 volts batteries in Series. Battery 1 & 2. Connect the negative post (-) of battery 1 to the negative (-) ground cable. Then connect the positive (+) post of battery 1 to the negative (-) post of battery 2. Connect the positive (+) post of battery 2 to the positive (+) cable. You now have 24 volts as the batteries are wired in series.
Take the # 1 battery and connect the positive cable to the vehicle. Then connect the negative cable on # 1 battery to the positive post on battery # 2. Finally connect the negative post on battery # 2 to ground on the vehicle. You will have 12 volts but only the amperage of #1 battery.
You have to disconnect the ground wire from the block. You have to disconnect the positive wire from the starter and the alternator and the powerline going to the fuse box. and connect the new ground then the positive
I connect a spare battery to the system with jumper wires, positive to an accessory post on the vehicle and the ground to a good engine ground. Keep in mind the vehicles positive battery cable will be hot even after the vehicles battery is removed.
No, the ground cable gets always disconnected first and connected last, regardless of ground polarity.
Answer Red cable (+) goes to starter solenoid and Positive side of battery Black (-) cable goes to engine ground. When disconnecting a battery always disconnect the ground cable from the battery first. When connecting a battery always connect the ground cable to the battery last.
You should connect and disconnect the negative post first. This way, if your tool touches ground when you work on the positive post, you don't short circuit the battery.
yes but remember to connect the positive (red) to the positive on the battery, and the negative (black) to a good ground ,away from the battery. this will prevent a spark near the battery and a possible explosion.
The (Red) positive post is larger than the (Black) negative post and on almost every battery I have even see the + & - are embossed on the battery. The red, positive battery cable will go from the battery to the starter. The black, negative cable will connect to ground.
---------------- You really don't need to replace anything! But his will allow you to ADD the more common negative ground accessories. This will work for tractors, trucks, cars... whatever. Switch the wires at the coil. Reverse your battery connections (turn your battery around and connect positive cable to positive post on the battery) and connect the negative cable to the ground. Connect a wire from the positive post of the battery. Take the other end of the wire and brush it against the "F" (field) post on the voltage regulator until you see a few sparks. DO NOT CONNECT THIS END, just brush it a couple times. Check all your fuses. Reverse the wires on your gauges or the display will be backwards.
Electrical sytem positive ground
You can connect the battery ground cable to the frame of the vehicle or to the engine.
To your vehicle chassis.
All batteries will have clearly marked posts, look for the molded + sign next to it or on the side of the battery. The grounding post will have a negative "-" sign next to it. If connecting your battery to the car, connect the positive post first, then the ground.
red is positive on a negative ground system
There are 2 battery terminals. A positive or hot and a negative or ground. The positive is slightly larger than the negative.
