Question about 2001 Nissan Quest

Installed new battery in 2001 Nissan Quest backwards

When a new battery was installed the installer hooked the battery terminals up backwards positive to negative, negative to positive. Once figured out the batery was hooked up properly. The vehicle won't start, won't turn over at all. The vehicle is completely dead. Checked the battery and it is holding its charge. Could it have blown the main or alternator fusable link? Or is there most likely worse damage?
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Dan

WOW, your lucky it didn't blow up and start the car on fire. there is probably serious damage to the entire wiring system.

I'm trying to install a new battery in my 1984 Nissan Sentra. When I hook up the terminals, the wiring starts to smoke leading me to believe that the hook up is backwards. What is the correct hook up for...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly (Electrician since late 1960's)

Ground goes to the - pole. Hooking it up backwards can damage your alternator, wiring harnesses and fuse links. (Fuse link damage is a nightmare to sort out!) What you do by hooking up a battery backwards is turn your vehicle wiring harness into a giant heating element. (<-Very bad!) If you just changed the battery and then you hooked up the cables with the smoking cable result you certainly did connect the cables backwards. The ground cable... will connect to chassis and in most cases the engine body / transmission somewhere.
The positive cable will eventually connect to the starter. Follow the ground lead from the battery to the chassis or engine body connection. (metal to metal contact) Once your sure that is the ground cable; connect it to the - post of the battery AFTER connecting the positive post terminal.
If you have a newer audio system you will have lost your radio codes. We can not provide the codes for anti-theft reasons. Activation Codes must be from the car dealer or audio system retailer.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have a 1993 300 SE with a dead battery. I noticed the grounded terminal is positive. Aren't most vehicles gounded from the negarive terminal? I want to make sure I install the new battery properly.


All Mercedes are negative ground and you should be able to follow the ground terminal a short distance directly to the body.. Do not hook it up backwards.

Where is the 4 channel amp located in the 94 nissan quest.?I am trying to install a stereo and there is no sound due to the amp. I need to know how to wire with the built in amp.


I just installed an after market radio in my 94 Quest.
The easiest way is to buy a Nissan Quest Radio Wiring Harness for Premium Sound. It will have the complete wire hookups. You can also hook up the blue wire from the new radio to thefactory (I think Blue or Blue/White) wire on the harness. That will turn the factory amp on.Hope this helps ,good luck

What is the negative battery cable bolted to and do I have to remove the battery to replace the cable?


The negative terminal on the battery is the one with the minus, usually the positive is red.
Disconnect the negative cable from the battery for safety. Then follow the cable to where it attaches to either the engine block or the body. They unbolt it and replace it.
You shouldn't have to remove the battery for this. Just don't mess with the positive terminal. You will have to reset the radio stations etc since battery is disconnected.
If the connection at the negative side is corroded, just cut it and reconnect it with a new battery terminal. A parts store can hook you up with that.
