If you have a post battery(the cable attaches from the top) the positive post is larger than the negative.
Positive+ (RED) goes to positive + on battery. Negative - (Black) goes to negative - on battery.
The positive battery cable will be going from the positive terminal of the battery over to the starter solenoid. The negative battery cable goes from the negative battery post to either a bolt on the generator upper bracket or the side of the engine block. Typically, the positive cable is red, and the negative is black, but people do all sorts of odd things to their cars, like have the wrong colored battery cables, so, go by how they are routed, not by what they look like.
Remove the negative and then positive cables from the battery.
take a small wrench and undo the positive and negative battery cables from the posts. take the old battery out and put the new one in place of the old one, and reconnect the positive to the positive post and the negative to negative.
The positive cable is connected to the alternator and starter. The negative cable is connected to the chassis or engine ground. Positive is red and negative is black. The positive post is slightly larger than the negative post.
Normally, yes. The positive + post is larger than the negative.
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.
Black (-) negative to negative ground post of battery. Red (+) positive to the other post. + & - is listed on the battery.
the negative cable is the one tha go to the chassy or the engine . And the positive go to the fuse box.
reverse for reconnecting unhook the negative and then the positive. The dealer has replacement cables available. Negative part number 4760567AC Positive part number 4759367AB
i assume the two red cables are for the positive and the black one single for the negative
Your battery is dead if it will not accept a charge. Begin by removing the battery cover. Next, remove the negative and positive cables. Lift the battery out of the motorcycle. Replace it with a new battery and attach the negative and positive cables. Turn on the motorcycle to check that the lights are working and start the motorcycle to make sure that it runs properly. Replace the battery cover.
As long as you connect the jumper cables correctly and remove them as soon as the car with the dead battery starts, you will do no harm. Remember connect the positive cables first and the negative last. Disconnect negative first and positive last.
Hook up the jumper cables in this order: (1,2,3,4) (1) One end of positive cable to positive post of GOOD battery (2) Opposite end of positive cable to positive post of DEAD/LOW battery of disabled vehicle (3) One end of negative cable to negative post of GOOD battery (4) Opposite end of negative cable to GROUND on disabled vehicle (a good ground is preferred over the negative post, however, the cable can also be hooked to the the battery post). To remove the jumper cables after starting, reverse the order (4,3,2,1)
you may have a dead battery of a shorted wire or component. be sure to connect positive to positive and negative to negative. disconnect one component at a time to find short. check that the exaust manifold isn't touching the starter
you put the red jumper on the posotive side and the black one on the negative battery side. Connect positive of one battery to the positive of the other. Then connect the negative of one to the negative of the other. Red to red, black to black.
Connect the positive (+) Red cable from the charger to the positive (+) post of the battery. Now connect the negative (-) Black cable to a metal part of the engine. Do not connect to negative battery post. Plug the charger in. Unplug the charger before removing the cables. Disconnect the negative cable first.
first undo the positive and negative cables, then in the bottom front of the battery there will be a bolt with a small bracket on it unbolt it and the battery should come right out
remove negative and positive cables from battery, touch cables together for 30 seconds and then reconnect.....will be reset.
remove negative and positive cables,take battery holddown bolt off,remove battery! when installing new battery, battery hold down first then install the cables , neg first!dont forget to reset radio.
You replaced the battery, is it good?? You really haven't given sufficient info. Check the Battery, Cables, Solenoid, Starter. The way I read this is that you put in a new battery and the truck's engine will not turn over when you turn the key. When you jump the truck, it turns over, starts, and runs. Are you jumping from positive to positive and negative to negative on the batteries OR are you going battery post negative on the vehicle giving the jump to a frame, engine bracket, or body metal point on your F150? If you are going positive to positive/negative to negative on the batteries, then I suspect your new battery. If you are hooking the negative jumper up to a ground other than the negative post on your battery, then I would suspect a bad negative cable. Speaking of cables, did you clean any corrosion off of the terminals when you replaced the battery? Corrosion does funny things. If in doubt, replace the battery cables.
The positive cable is hooked on the solenoid contact and the negative is hooked to the body of the car. With such connections you will never get the sparking issues.
It would be essentially the same as connecting a battery in the car, except with longer cables. You would have to use jumper cables to extend the car battery cables. Be sure to follow ALL safety procedures. Do NOT let anyone or anything metal touch anything else except where you make the connections. Do not touch the metal connectors themselves. I assume there is no battery in the car. I will call the battery that is not in the car the "external battery". First connect the positive ("+", usually red) jumper cable to the positive car battery cable, & then the other end of that jumper cable to the positive external battery terminal. Then do the same with the negative ("-", usually black) car battery cable & jumper cable. The last thing you connect should be the far end of the negative jumper cable to the negative terminal of the external battery. When you are ready to disconnect the external battery from these cables, do so in reverse order, starting with disconnecting the negative ("-", usually black) jumper cable from the negative external battery terminal.
To hook up jumper cables, attach one cable from the negative post on one battery to the negative post on the other battery. (These usually are marked "-" and have a blacl cable attached to them.) Attach the other jumper cable from the positive post on one battery to the positive post on the other battery. (These usually are marked "+" and have a red cable attached to them.)
