If you connected the battery wrong, chances are you fried your main fuse box.  Check the main i believe 30 amp maxifuse and replace it.  Your main fusebox should be under the hood in the engine compartment.

My 1984 ford f150 is not charging the wire from the alternator to the solenoid is getting hot and smoking i have put new alternator, battery, solenoid and voltage regulator


If your still having this problem after replacing all of that you either have a short on that wire or on the starter after the solenoid. I would check the starter.

I have a1994 ford f-150, battery fine, but it


Very possible that selenoid is bad-did you have starter tested?(auto parts stores do this)Check all cables going to starter for corrosion and loose connection at starter. Corrosion gets inside of cables over time, so replace when in doubt. INSTRUCTIONS-remove negative cable from battery and move away from battery(tie off), on selenoid if fender mounted, remove cables from both sides of selenoid(is stamped with letters B and I)-when you remove, mark with tape which is I and which is B, in case replacement is different from old unit. then remove from fender(save bolts)-install new part on fender, and replace cables on proper sides(B or I). install neg. cable on battery-try to start....good luck!!!

1984 Ford F-150 Starter problem


You have a bad connection. It will pass enough current to keep things running, but the starter load is causing it to burn the spots that are making contact.

I had this same issue with my '86 F-150, and the final solution was to replace the all the heavy cables: battery to solenoid, solenoid, to starter, and block to battery ground. Thoroughly clean the block where the negative cable connects, and the battery terminals.
