I am sorry but you will need a wiring diagram booklet from the manufacturer.

Those wires need to be replaced or repaired. They probably were rubbing together and shorted out, not uncommon in older vehicles. If you do it yourself, make sure you replace them with the same gauge (size) wire and use heat shrink tube on your joints. Do them one at a time so you get them hooked up right.
Once you get them repaired you may find other electrical problems that have occured because of it, it all depends on where they went.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: truck won't start battery ok when i turn key it does nothing

I'm not really trying to be a goof here... but have you checked an auto parts store? Battery cables are, for the most part, generic in nature. Remove the negative battery connection, then remove the positive, take the cable off. Clean the ends off with baking soda and inspect. If indeed broken, then take it with you to the auto parts store and match it up. If not broken, then put it back on after claen up, it should work. If it doesn't, then your problem is with the solenoid on the starter.
Hope this helps!

How do i hook up my battery wires in my 1992 chevy pickup

how was it hooked up before you started working on it. the black wire is the negative cable and that is the body ground and most bolt it to the engine or a bracket and there is a short wire sometimes and that will goto the body near the battery. now that is done. the positive red wire goes to the starter and or a block that has a wire going to the starter. the block is more like a metal strip with a bunch of bolts sticking out and the wires should be all red. that is mounted to the firewall and is plastic so it does not ground to the body.the short wire from the positive red cable is not always used. so if it was not hooked to anything leave it alone.

Which wires go where on a 2003 3.4 liter Chevy

There are three posts on the starter solenoid. Two large ones, and one small one. One of the large ones has a braided wire going into the starter. leave this one alone. On the other large ones, you will connect the positive battery cable as well as the large red wire coming from the alternator. The small purple wire connects to the small post on the solenoid. Lastly, on the engine block pointing the opposite way (towards the drivers side) is another stud and you will connect the negative battery cable to it.
Make sure that none of the wires can touch the other posts coming out of the solenoid.

Was welding on the frame and now my truck won't start, lights won't come on, windows won't go up or down. Replaced the computer but that did not fix it. It's a 93 GMC 3500 one ton dually 454 2 wheel drive.

I'm guessing you were doing arc welding as opposed to gas welding, right? Battery should be disconnected any time you're arc welding. Check the fusible link located somewhere along the positive battery cable (the positive cable may run to a battery junction box with up to five fusible link cables coming out of it). Check voltage from battery positive cable (cable connected) or continuity (cable disconnected) to downstream point beyond fusible link. Fusible links cannot be repaired - they must be replaced. Good luck.

Datsun 1600 main fuse

The small pigtail coming off the positive battery cable should lead to a fusible link (about 3 inches long, with a connector on each end, wire may be green). If not a fusible link, look for a small case-like box mounted to car frame, containing a fuse element strip, also right after or around the battery.

Gauges and instrument panel not working after loose battery cable was found and repaired.

Most Toyotas have more than one wire coming off of the positive battery cable connector. These wires go to other power centers as the larger cable goes to the starter and its controls. Make sure those other wires have a good connection. Take them apart and really clean them. Don't rely on just checking to see if the main cable has power. Then test these wires as well as possible where they go into the engine harness and near the firewall. In some cases, one or more of these wires are actually fuse links. Make sure that if they are, they are not blown. If so, replace them. Fuse links are fusible wires that act just like a regular fuse. Also check all of the fuses in the fuse box(es). There may be more than one box. One under the hood and maybe another under the dash.

Battery terminal does this come from starter to battery or the the black box next to battery?

the positive battery cable goes to the starter and the black box.there are some other wires involved with the pos cable. if your trying to replace it with a generic cable you cause more problems down the road than its worth.get a factory one at the dealer it will be easier to install and wont create problems
