What is the negative and.positive pin on the battery?


The battery terminals have a plus (+) and minus (-) symbol somewhere near the terminal studs. If you cannot find them, use a multimeter set to a proper DC Range. Place the probes on the studs. If the meter reads the voltage, then red probe is on the positive terminal, if the meter pulls backwards the black probe is on the positive terminal.

If using a digital multimeter, a (-) says that the red probe is on the negative terminal.

Mark your battery with a Sharpie somewhere to show the terminal studs.

Have a delcotron alternator ,what to know where no.1 terminal and no.2terminal wire goes it is on my 1946 cj2a jeep my amp hand does not show a charge had alternator checked out and is ok


  • Use a wrench to remove the negative and positive battery cables: They are clearly labeled "+" and "-." Always remove the negative cable first, as this isolates the power to the metal parts of your car. Tuck the cables away from the battery as you don't want them to accidentally touch a battery terminal when you're wiring your alternator.

  • 3

    Locate the alternator terminals. There are two: one marked "live," "pos" or "+" and the other marked "neg," "field" or "-."

  • 4

    Locate the two cables. The positive (red) cable goes to your battery via a wire loom or harness. The negative (black) cable attaches to a metal part of your car.

  • 5

    Check how the cables attach to the alternator terminals. Some connect using eyelets that hook over the terminal and tighten with a bolt; others connect by inserting the wire under the terminal and tightening a bolt.

  • 6

    Loosen the two bolts using a suitable-sized wrench or, if the cables connect using eyelets, remove the bolts.

  • 7

    Insert the exposed end of the negative (black) cable under the loosened bolt on the negative terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 8

    Insert the exposed end of the positive (red) cable under the loosened bolt on the positive terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 9

    Replace the positive battery cable on the positive battery terminal using a wrench. Replace the negative battery cable on the negative battery terminal.

    Please tell me where are the positive and negetive ends of the battery for a jump start, my batttery is dead Dr.S.V.Anand


    If you can locate the battery, telling the positive from the negative terminal easy.

    Inspect the terminals closely; the positive terminal has a 'plus' (+) sign near it. This terminal is also larger than the other (usually).

    Similarly the negative terminal has a 'minus' (-) near it.

    Also visit this page for more information on jump starting.

    How to switch out the battery


    Remove Negative terminal first, then positive terminal. Battery will have some type of tie down or block at base with a bolt you will have to remove. Remember how it goes back together. Remove battery.
    Install new battery and tie down or block. Install Positive terminal then Negative terminal.
    Remember to never touch both Positive and negative terminals with a metal object (ie..ratchet, wrench etc) this can cause injury and/or permanent damage to a new battery.

    • Install the new battery into the tray.
    • Also install the hold-down hardware.

    • Install the positive battery cable.
    • Then install the negative cable.
    • When installing a battery, be careful to observe the correct polarity. Reversing the cables destroys the diodes. Proper polarity must also be observed when connecting a booster battery, positive to positive and negative to ground.

    • Coat the terminals with corrosion preventative spray, then check the job by starting the car.

    Battery terminals


    Can't tell you without looking at the battery, it may be in backwards...This is what you need to tell the difference between positive and negative:
    The positive terminal usually has a plastic red cap over the wire. The positive wire is usually red.
    The positive wire leads to the fusebox, and the starter.
    The Negative wire connects to the fender. Is is usually closer to the fender. Let me know if this helps, a FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated.
