The positive cable should go to the starter solenoid, to the same post that the alternator connects to.

Changing positive cable for battery


You need to start with the basics ,get a new cable then only disconnect one side at a time that way you know where to hook it back up.the positive will run to your alternator and your starter so you will need to get under the car.MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE SIDE BEFORE DOING ANY WORK AND START AT THE STARTER AND WORK YOUR WAY BACK UP TO THE BATTERY.

Tough one. First thing I would do is replace your cables, signal wire from ignition switch to solenoid included. Sounds like a short somewhere.

Hi!!

You may have the positive cable hooked in the wrong side of the starting selenoid or the starter selenoid is defective.

Follow the RED (+) cable from the battery, it goes to the starter selenoid wich has two terminals, change the cable to the other terminal, that should take care of the problem unless the selenoid is stuck on. Replacement runs about $15.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!

Silenod on starter ****, causing battery to drain


Just remove the negative cable from the battery, and remove the wires from the starter and replace.When putting the wires back on the starter just make sure the wires are not touching anything else but the terminal that it is bolted to. Then put the negative batt. cable back on.

Voltage drop test


First, check battery post to cable connection: positive meter lead on battery positive post, negaitve lead on battery's positive cable clamp. Crank the engine and note the reading. A good connection should have zero voltage drop. Second, check the positive cable: positve meter lead on positive battery clamp, negative lead on starter terminal connector. A good cable will show a voltage drop of .2 volts or less while cranking. Third, check the starter connection: positive meter lead on positive battery terminal on the solenoid, negative meter lead on actual starter stud. A good connection will have a voltage drop of near zero volts. Now to check the negative side of the circuit. Total drop on the ground side should be .3 volts or less and can be checked by placing positive meter lead on starter housing and negative meter lead on battery ground post. Take your reading while cranking the engine, and be sure your connection at the starter is solid and clean. If total voltage drop on this side of the circuit is excessive, complete testing at all connections in the same fashion as the positive side of the circuit. Check the following: between battery post and clamp (zero voltage drop), cable end at battery to cable end at engine. (.2 volts or less), cable end at engine to engine itself (near zero voltage drop), and finally between starter housing and engine block (.1 volts or less).
