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.

I have a 98 corvette I changed the battery and the car won't turn over


Why did you change the battery? Was the car running before you changed the battery? Did you remove your negative cable first before your positive cable on your battery? I ask cause sometimes people ground the positive cable to ground when they remove their battery and blow a fuse or relay. If they are good check your battery and starter you might have a loose cable. Let me know how you make out.

No power to 2000 F 250 7.3 diesel after changing positive battery cables


Did you check both the positive and negative battery cables? The two fuses on the right are voltage for ignition switch. Use a test light, see if the fuse circuits are hot? Should be hot all the time. There are fusible links involved, also. The battery junction box is under the hood.
