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.
are u sure the original problem was the battery and do you have the cables hooked up correctly.
Depending on what you mean there are two answers. A car being jumped with cables on backward will short out the car either blowing the electrical system and or causing sparks. If you are installing a battery in your car and you put the cables on backwards then you will either drain the battery or short out the car.
well if you really hooked up jumper cables wrong and you got by the fireworks show then you probably damaged your alternator and battery. Possibly blowing fuseable link,but if car runs then alternator and battery.
Yes. Especially if the cables are hooked up backwards.
Clarify please, 2 cables go to 2 terminals on battery.
Probably. The alternator and voltage regulator may be fried, and the battery ruined. Take the battery to a battery shop and have them test it.
Best and easiest way to change battery in any Volkswagen. Remember if your computer loses power it will go into limp mode and you will find yourself at the dealership for vag-com. Have a friend with a good battery and a set up jumper cables and hook cables from his battery to yours, loosen battery terminals on your battery and carefully remove battery with out knocking the cables off (remember keep power to the battery cables on your WW). Carefully install your new battery and tighten the terminals. With jumper cables still hooked to your car start your engine, then remove the jumper cables. I would then take car for a short drive to ensure that there is a full charge to the battery you just installed.
If your car has a battery and it's dead, you can call a friend who has some jumper cables. You can hook the jumper cables up to his battery and your car's battery. It should create electricity that will renew your battery. If your car does not have a battery, you would have to push it or get it towed.
On a car battery, the cables attach to two metal posts which stick up on the top of the battery.
This is because each time the battery is disconnected, the computer in the car loses power. When the new battery is hooked up, the computer system needs to be reset to stop the lights from blinking.
Not unless the cables were hooked up in reverse.
Because it is suppose to start if the battery is hooked up.
Because they are not hooked up to a battery wire they are only hooked up with an ignition wire.
why were there sparks when cabels were hooked up when trying to jump start car is it safe to try and jump start car again
You dont and even after they are hooked back up the code would have most likely been erased after the battery was disconnected.
No, the battery is part of it's circuit. In fact nothing in the car will work without the battery.
You hooked up the wires backwards on the starter go in and change them. That or you got the wrong starter.
You can't recharge it hooked up in reverse. You will destroy the battery or the charger if you try it.
Probably the same guy who first stuck a battery in a car. A battery by itself isn't any use, you need to hook it up to something, and that's when you need cables.
an upgrade could be the tazer or the electric car battery hooked up to your nipples
No, and you may do major damage to the computers.
Hooking the battery cables up incorrectly. Reversing the polarity can cause the battery to explode.
There are many reasons a radio fuse can blow. However, if it happened while trying to jump-start a vehicle, most likely what happened is the cables were hooked up to the battery backwards.
