Hey C==The negative cable is the ground cable. Just go to the parts store and get a new one. Make sure both cables are clean and that there is a good ground calbe between the engine and body., Don't overlook this, it is extremely important. GoodluckJoe

Is the battery in an Sl500 battery positive or negative ground?

Batteries are neither positive nor negative ground. It is the circuit itself that determines the common ground. For example: If I have two circuits, one needing 6vdc negative ground and the other needing 6vdc positive ground, the battery would be installed the same way in both circuits (positive terminal on the battery to the positive connection in the circuit, regardless of whether the circuit is positive or negative ground). The reason for labeling the ground as Positive or Negative has more to do with how the circuit is wired up, than the actual voltage source. The explanation for that is beyond the scope of this answer.
