    This is what happened....My son bought a brand new battery....What he didn't notice, it was the wrong battery, with pos. & neg. terminals reversed..When he hooked up the battery cables, he got the big spark..The ignition was not switched on...I bought the right battery, hooked it power..I checked the main fuses, and found that only the 100amp had blown...Replaced the fuse, tried to start the car, and it wanted to start, but it acted like the battery was almost dead and it wouldn't turn over...Thanks adrianha29 for your solution ..I will check out what you recommended....

Lets start with ;; the car wants to turn over;?i dont know what you mean ,is the starter motor turning ?is the engine turning/.lets rule out a couple of things 1 the alternator might be faulty as you say why did you need jump cables in the first place.lets start after the big spark;if ign was switched on at the time of the spark then anything is possible;i would say start looking in and around the battery for burnt or broken wires then move down to wards the starter also feel all plastic wires for signs of overheating replace if necessery.At the starter motor you should have three wires one earth this is black or has no covering the second wire is red with a plastic covering the third is the wire coming from your ign switch check all three wires for burning if you cant find the fault by now then you will have to get it tested by an autoelectrical garage hope this helps you.adrian

Had to replace my battery, now I have a new battery and the car wont start, nothing. Cant even jump start it now. Almost like the starter is getting no juice, any ideas???

Hi Chris,
there is a main fuse, usually it like big amps like close to 100 amps. depending on the make and model. It will be under the hood. what usual happens is the jumper cables are hooked up with reversed, but that doesn't matter. What matters is a 60 to 100 amp fuse that is blown, if its a older model it will have a bar fuse, new ones are sometimes solder in. The fuse will be blown, you should be able to see it visually. It should say battery main fuse more then likely its a 60, should be a pluck and chuck. Hope this helped Tim

Why was the battery replaced? Theres no reason the the 100 amp fuse to blow unless the alternator is shorted or you hooked up the battery backwards. I think the 100 amp fuse goes to the alternator. If it was hooked up backwards then you may have engine computer damage.

Jumper cables hooked with reverse polarity. what to check

there is some big square fuses in the fuse block under the hood and i would say that one or more of these are blown and if you find that one of these are blown and will not pull out some are bolted in on the side of the fuse block and some of the smaller fuses could also be blown but you need to fix the bigger problem first.look closely at the bigger 40-100 amp fuses first........if i can help any futher let me know.............i hope this was helpful good luck let me know...............

At a guess, I'd say that you have got the new battery in back to front. This means that you are hooking the earth wires to the Positive side of the battery.
