The positive battery cable runs from your battery to your starter and is pretty easy to replace(Depending on vehicle). Hopefully if the positive isn't attached then the negative cable has been removed as well. Follow your positive cable from your battery down through your engine bay and it will lead you to your starter - this could be at the front of your engine block or at the rear underneath. Then all you have to do is replace it, making sure you connect it to the starter first then the battery. If it's just the battery terminal, the connection that actually hooks into the battery then all you have to do is un srew the nuts on each side of the terminal and replace it with a new one. Then reconnect it to the battery positive first then negative.

How can you fix your BMW 328i convertible electric roof which will not work?

Start with the electric motor. Use a jumper wire on the positive wire of the motor and a hot wire. Does it work? If so, then you have to test the wiring harness back to the relay/fuse, the activation switch, and the battery. If the motor didn't work, then you need to replace the motor. If the motor works, but the top doesn't, then you need to check for broken cables or binding in the roof structure.

The wire broke some where between the body and hatch, use a small flat blade screw driver and pop the rubber shield off both, then inspect the wire for a break, or a black spot {Indicants shorting on the metal, positive wire only} once the broken wire is found use about 4 inches of new wire to patch the broken wire together, 24-22 awg will be fine.

Fixing "Breaks" in Electrical CircuitsThe method of repair depends on the part of a circuit which is "open" [broken or cut wire, or a circuit board conductor strip]If the problem is a cut or broken wire, the fix is to PROPERLY SPLICE the wire, including proper cleaning first, twisting the wires together, soldering them, and properly insulating the splice.If the problem is the grounding of a "hot" wire to a metal part of the sheet metal, the fix is to PROPERLY insulate the bare part of the wire to prevent contact with the grounded metal.If the problem is a broken conductor in the "etch" on the instrument cluster printed circuit board, the fix is to clean the ends of the broken etch, and with a soldering "pen," the proper solder [acid free] and great care, to "fill" / solder the two broken ends of the etch conductor together.Good luck.
