The positve cable of the charger (red lead) goes to the post of the battery marked (+), the black lead of the charger goes to the battery post marked (-) a black cable at the battery.

SOURCE: Charging a battery on a 2001 Caddy sts

when charging a battery it is better that it is disconnected from the car's battery cables and even better if removed, also don't charge it if you smell a rotten egg odor, the cell(s) may be shorted and it could explode. remember red to positive, black to negative, hook the positive up first. don't overcharge the battery, 2 or 3 hours at 4-6 amps is enough charge to have it tested, if it won't charge then the battery is defective and needs to be replaced.

Your plugwire cabling is too 'NEAT'

Make SURE that cables don't run parallel and DO cross over one another as running parallel induces HV pulses in the adjacent cable resulting in misfire.

Get under the hood and mess them up a bit ;-)
JUST the NEAT wiring, not the firing order!

SOURCE: wont start

Is starter engaging but is turning the engine slowly then not turning engine? (that's what I'm reading) If so, check both connections at the block and starter. If reading proper voltage 12v or better, check voltage across battery when in "start" if it drops below 9.5v the starter has failed. (you can turn the engine by hand...correct?)

98 izzu hombre 4.3 battery went dead after a jump it wont start how to fix


The jump start may have blown you alternator or voltage regulator. If so, you have an inactive charging system. You must have a good battery for this to work, Disconnect the positive cable to the battery. Use a battery charger to slow charge your battery. When the battery is fully charged, reattach the positive cable and try to start your engine. If it starts take the truck to a shop or auto zone to have the charging system checked. Fix what is needed.
Any time a vehicle is jump started, do so with the hot battery car not running and its ignition off. If it is running and your car starts one or both charging systems are usually damaged. There may not be damage if it is GM to GM or Ford to Ford, etc., but to be safe, do not let both cars run at the same time when connected.

Battery dead. how can I get trunk open.


You can't unless it has a key hole. If you put jump leads on the battery or connect a battery charger it will open straight away.

How do I give my car a boost my battery is dead on my 2009 cts where do I charge my battery at


To jump start a car there is a set procedure that has to be followed to prevent ECM damage from power surge. Connect the positive lead form the jumping battery directly to the positive terminal of the dead battery. Next connect the negative lead from the jumping battery to the engine (Any place that is metal--head stud--lifting bracket-etc) to charge the battery remove the terminals and connect the charger as directed. However I would suggest that you have a load test done on the battery to check for a dead cell or jumping will achieve nothing

How do I get truck started after its been sitting for months


Charge up the battery with a battery charger or jump start the truck with a good battery. Connect the jumper leads from the good battery to the battery on the truck.
Connect the red lead from the + terminal on the good battery to the + (plus) terminal on the truck.
Connect the black lead from the - terminal on the good battery to the - (minus) terminal on the truck.
The good battery will supply power to the starter motor.
Then you can turn the key to start the truck.

I have a homelite 720 generator but cant fingd the instruction manual and i need to know if the charger leads only charge a battery or can be used as jump leads i know this might sound stupid but i wo


I can't find any reference to a Homelite model 720 generator but most battery charging systems do not supply enough amps to run a car starter. Battery chargers usually work in the two (trickle) to ten amp range. Car starters need way more amps to have enough power to turn an engine over, depending on the size and number of cylinders in the motor. Some chargers have a switch with a 60 amp 'start' position to help the battery turn the motor over, but without that there is little chance the charger side of your generator will supply enough amps to help your battery.
