Under th hood there is a fuse box by the battery inside of there you will find an odd looking fuse, it should be 80 amps if I remember correctly this the fuse that is probably burnt out as it is there to protect your altenator. to help locate this fuse it is usually held in with two screws, ( it is not like the ones that push in ).
hope this helps you and I hope that you will take th time to rate this response .

I hooked the battery cables up backwards and it blew the magneto hooked the cables back the right way and it blew the magneto again the model#21R707-0011 10.5hp 344c


This doesn't sound like a car, but more like a riding mower or something.

Anyway, is it the magneto that "blew" or a fuse for the magneto? You don't mention that you replaced the magneto....

Some manufacturers incorporate reverse protection diodes that are supposed to cause a fuse to blow if the battery is hooked up backward. Unfortunately, the diode often becomes a short circuit when this happens and would explain why a primary fuse would blow again, even when the battery is hooked up correctly. If you have a wiring diagram for what you're working on, I'd suggest checking for a diode connected near the battery cables. If you don't have a wiring diagram for this, you're probably going to need one.

Sounds like you have a dead short on that circuit. Make sure battery is not being hooked up backwards. Now you will need a wiring diagram to see what all that fuse powers.

Hooked battery up backwards


You can. Fry your ECM. Fairly quickly in the newer cars by doing that. However most likely you blew a fuse. Check the fuses under the dash in under your hood. Most fuses boxes have a diagram on the bottom of the cover you remove. Look for your fuel fues. Or relay. Check all fuses just to be safe.

Begin by replacing the battery. If this doesn't take care of the problem, also replace the alternator and check each of the fuses. J.

Car wouldn't start, bought new battery, still won't start.


it sounds like the battery was drained again but this one should be under warranty.Get it running again and look into those cutoff switches that automatically shut the lights.Until then.be extra careful, maybe even leave yourself a note on the drivers door to
'shut the lights'.
