How do you install a new battery? Where is the battery??

Under the hood on drivers side, unless it is an import and then it could be under the back seat or in the trunk. If not immediately apparent Google 'make model battery location'.

How to change the battery?

This is very important if you want to avoid the battery change problems that we see and try solve here every day.

Get two pieces of insulated wire and strip 3" from the end and attach them to the new battery at the base of the connectors and tape them to the bare part of the battery connectors on the old battery.

Take the connectors off the old battery and move it out of the way.

Install the new battery and connect the connectors making sure you have the correct polarity + to + and minus to minus. Tighten the connectors and then remove the wires. This way you have power to the anti-theft system and the ECM all the time. You won't be coming back and say "I changed my battery and now my car won't start and the theft light is on" :>)

2003 Toyota echo flashing battery light after installation of new battery.

The battery light indicates, when lit, that the charging system (alternator), is not supplying enough power to run the vehicle and thus is draining the battery of power. Under normal conditions this should never happen. Have your charging system checked.

No windows, speedometer, tach, radio runs fine

This sounds like something was wired wrong, hope there is no computer damage, the first step is to locate the fuse boxes and check all fuses first then remove the radio and check wiring.

I see this all the time. the power for night dash lights that was used to light the lights inside old radio is used on new radio and is sending power through radio and out ground wires to modules and computers, the new radio does not use the light wire, so double check all wiring even remove connector from radio if it keeps blowing a fuse. start there good day

1999 ford ranger wont start. no attempt to start no clicking etc. Replaced battery and still no attempt to start. Lights work etc. Battery was charged and tested at parts store and I was told the original...

Starter may be bad, or connection to the starter could be corroded or broken. There also may be a fuse, I'm not sure. Locate the starter and try running a jumper wire to it. Mini jumper cables will work. Hook those up to the battery and then run it to the starter. Ground it to a metal part and use the positive side to touch the power connector on the starter. IF the starter kicks, its a connection issue. If it doesnt, replace the starter.

Hi. I just installed alternator and New battery in my car

Fuses, and make sure you got all of the wires hooked to the alternator, and that they aren't burn't. Some older vehicles had "fusible links" which is a wire that opens when the load is too great. It's like a fuse.

What color is what for the radio wires i have like a atapter

your car should have an ISO connector, all newer radios also have ISO connectors, one for the 8 speaker wires and one for the power block, they cannot be connected wrong.
If on the other hand some muppet has chopped off the connectors instead of using a proper converter connector then you should reinstall new ISO connectors.
You will need:
A 12v test light or a multimeter set to 120vdc
some masking tape to make labels and a ped to mark the labels.
A quick test to establish the correct wires is.
using your 12volt test lamp or multi meter, find a wire that is live when ignition is off, this is your +30 live, now switch on ignition and find one that is live, this is your+15 live, now switch on the lights, is there another live? this is your lights or dimmer wire. with the lights and ignition on connect the live lide of your tester to the +30 wire and find one that is earth, (you should be running outof wires by now anyway, this si your earth or ground wire.
The speaker wires will probably be seperate and if you have a bunch of 8 wires, that's them.
you will find there is a prime color and another with the same color but with a trace, so make into pairs, ie, red and red/white, green and green/white etc.
using a 1,5v AA battery touch each pair very briefly in turn, the corrisponding speaker will 'pop', mark up front left etc.
There ya go, all sorted.

Wiring diagram for radio

if your truck still has the wire connectors for the radio harness then your best bet would be to purchase the plug in adapters from wal-mart or local stereo shop,it should only cost about 10-15 bucks and would clarify your connectivity issues.or get a test light and at least determine power & ground wires then run new speaker wire
