Clean or replace the cable before you end up getting stranded; you have a bad connection. Mark

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.

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.

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

User Avatar

Look for a loose or corroded positive battery cable at the battery post - or a loose/corroded battery terminal on the positive cable.

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.

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.

User Avatar

Start the car and while it is running, disconnect the positive cable from the battery. If the car stalls, the alternator is bad.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

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.

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.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

Hmmm, unless it is something new, I've never heard of a battery that will recharge itself when the engine is not running. You will either have to connect a charger to it or jump-start the vehicle. To jump-start, follow these directions to avoid any sparks and cause possible damage to the electronic components: 1. Connect one end of the positive jumper cable to the positive post of the "DEAD" battery. 2. Connect the other end of the positive jumper cable to the positive post of the "GOOD" battery. 3. Connect one end of the negative jumper cable to the negative post of the "GOOD" battery. 4. Connect the opposite end of the negative jumper cable to GROUND on the "DEAD" vehicle. Start the "GOOD" vehicle and allow to run several minutes to boost the DEAD battery. After several minutes of boosting, start the "DEAD" vehicle and allow to run a couple of minutes before disconnecting the jumper cables. To disconnect the jumper cables, remove IN REVERSE ORDER of connection.

Should be on the passenger inner fender. Start at the battery and follow the positive cable. First thing you come to is the solenoid.
