Hooked jumper cables up backwards now eng wont crank


You could have fried the computer. You'll need a scanner put on it to make sure. Scan all the computers in the car. Depending on the car, the ECM,BCM,security, and dash can keep the car from starting.

What happens when you hook a care battery up backwards?


Hello Glen, Bad bad things can happen when you hook up a car battery backwards. If your car has a high quality electrical system it might only blow out one or two main fuses. If not, it can cause havoc on the wiring system and burn out the alternator, computer, sensors, modules, and stereo system to name a few.

1998 Acura tl 3.2 no start no noise


First check your battery condition and state of charge, next check your battery cables for cleanliness and tightness. Did this happen after jump starting the vehicle? If so the jumper cables may have been hooked up backwards causing the main fuse to blow in the underhood fuse box. Check that next. Then you need to check for a start signal at the starter which is best accessed from the drivers side under the vehicle.

Truck will not start how can i tell if its a starter or selonoid


does it spin real fast without clanging and grinding against the flywheel? if so then its probably the solenoid bad. do you have to hit the starter with a hammer then it works? it is probably bad brushes or a worn motor. eather way i think you can only get a new starter and solenoid together not sold seperate. check for bad battery cables (loose).
