Because its a 1988 Buick LeSabre
most likely positive. that's wat it is on a jump-start cable.
The battery post positive terminal is where you connect the positive cable. Connect the negative cable to anyplace on the engine or chassis. Connect positive first and remove it last.
it sounds like your neutral safety switch
You don't, you connect to the battery from the battery of another car. Use the positive cable to connect the two positive electrodes and the negative to connect the two negative electrodes.
there is a positive battery post under the hood of the car that you use for your positive cable hook-up and then connect your negative cable to any metal portion on the engine.
After removing the positive and negative cable, follow the negative cable to where it's grounded to the wheel well. Remove the end of the cable with the wrench. Track the positive cable to its connection on the driver's side of the engine and remove it with the wrench. Now, attach the new positive cable first and install the negative cable last and start the car to ensure that the connections are working on your Ford Escort.
ALTINATOR OR STARTER. JUMP START CAR, TAKE POSITIVE CABLE OFF BATTERY,IF CAR DIES IT IS ALTERNATOR. GOOD LUCK
what can cause a 2002 buick lesabre to not crank
check the connection on the end of the pos(+) and neg(-) battery cables. sometime the car won't start if the cables are loose or corroaded. this may get you started I hope it helps.
to find starter...start at positive post on battery, follow big cable to end of cable........at which pointwill connect to starter
If the engine turns over but will not start your battery cable is NOT the problem. Even if it stated after reattaching the cable. Something else was the problem.If the engine will not turn over then the cable might be your problem. If you took off the cable and then reattached it and then the engine turned over then your cable was not making a good connection with the battery terminal and by reattaching it you improved the connection.
Look for a loose or corroded positive battery cable at the battery post - or a loose/corroded battery terminal on the positive cable.
1. Connect one end of the positive cable to the "dead" or low battery positive post. 2. Connect the opposite end of the positive cable to the positive post of the battery being used for jump starting. 3. Connect one end of the negative cable to the negative post of the battery being used to jump start. 4. Connect the opposite end of the negative cable to a good ground on the "disabled" vehicle. Start the "good" vehicle and allow the "dead" battery to charge for 3-5 minutes. Start the "disabled" vehicle. If it doesn't start, allow to charge longer, then re-try. After the "disabled" vehcile starts, remove the cables in reverse order of connecting.
Just like you jump start any other car. Connect positive cable to positive post of battery and connect negative to any metal part of the engine or frame.
Start the car and while it is running, disconnect the positive cable from the battery. If the car stalls, the alternator is bad.
Negative cable, usually black. For safety reasons, you should always remove negative cable first and positive second. Replace in reverse order, + first, - last.
When did comcast cable start
you should have removed the negative cable. when reattaching positive cable, you have probably blown some electrical component. you now need to have amechanic or auto electrician look at it
You hook the positive cable to the red connection just inside of the air cleaner box. You hook the negative cable to the nut on the left strut tower.
I would suspect a loose or corroded battery cable. Remove the negative - cable first and clean both cable connection and the battery posts. Hook the positive + cable back up first. Can also be a starter solenoid going bad.
If a jump start will not start it then it is not the battery. You either have a short in the battery cable connection to the battery or the engine/starter or you have a bad starter. Test for a short in battery, battery Cables or connection. Trace where the positive battery cable connects to usually an electrical box on the inside of the engine compartment and put the positive jumper cable there while putting the negative jumper cable on a metal part of the engine (you are by-passing the battery and the battery cables completely). If it does not start now then you have a bad starter.
Are your battery cable connections clean and tight ?
