Fusible link to starter from positive battery post is smoked. It will be a thick part on your cable.

Had to jump car cuz battery was and dead and tmsp is all lines how do i reset it


to jump start a car the following procedure applies
place the positive lead from the jump battery onto the positive terminal of the car battery (clip on)
place the negative lead of the jump battery onto the engine ( clip on) not the car battery terminal
this prevents power surges through the ECM
remove the jump battery is the reverse procedure
to reset an ECM use a scan tool
there are jumper leads now on the market which have surge protection in a lead so in that case positive to positive and negative to negative

Battery hooked up wrong


Disconnect the main battery to alternator wire and check again.
NOTE: DO NOT FORGET TO INSULATE THE REMOVED WIRE WITH INSULATING TAPE DURING THE TEST.
The diode rectifiers in the alternator may have become shorted due to the reverse polarity.

Using a test light, just find a fuse that is hot with the key
off,pull the fuse and find the feed side,hook your wire to
the "dead" side ( so the fuse will be in the circuit)

After charging my dead battery it will only run for a second or two then dies.


Perhaps the batter is "dead" dead and has met the end of it's functional life. You see, lead batteries like car batteries convert lead ions in solution into a solid as energy by chemical reaction. Charging the batter reverses the process, but the process becomes less and less reverseable as the age of the batter increases. When the process can no longer be efficiently reversed by "charging", the battery remains in it's dead, or semi-dead state, where it might run for only a few seconds.

Also, your alternator might be shot because technically, if you can start your engine, the alternator should provide the power to remain on; the battery serves only the purpose of starting the car and receiving the charge from the alternator to power the rest of the car's electronics.

Test both the battery and alternator, no more than $100-$150 to fix either problem.

Hope that helps!

It wont crank like not getting power


ok sounds like you have a dead battery
1) if turns but slowly:

posible causes:
1.1) old dead batery/
or underchaged battery >check altenator in this case

did you leave your headlights turnt on and drained the battery of its charge?if so get a jump start and then run the car for 30-45 mins to rechagre the battery

if you have at your disposal anothere batery that you know has a good charge
try starting your car with that batery(not using jumper cables) hook it up!
if the slugish turn over is still there

1.2) check your wire conections for corision this means completly disconecting 1 lead at a time (only on one end of that lead)and cleaning them with a wire brush or some sand paper.
(on the battery and the starter also the ground strap conection to the frame.)

2) WONT TURN OVER AT ALL:
posible causes:
2.0) dead battery >try charging it>get a jump start
2.1) blown turnkey igntion fuse
2.2) blow fuse for main har nes wires
2.3) bad starter
2.4) corosion on wire conection (most often the batery terminals)
2.5) starter replaced and hooked up incorectly.

2.6) alram system preventing the turnkey igntion system from getting power

Which colour wire to use to hook up a trailer for a Kia Carnival 2000,trailer leads are yellow, green,black,brown,red,white and blue(no connection). just want to know which lead goes to which in the Kia?...


Hi there,

Here is a cheat sheet I compiled that you will find very helpful:


Plug Types/Application
7 Way - RV Trailers, Horse and Utility Trailers
6 Way - Horse, Stock and Utility
4 Way - Utility Trailers

Columns are Color, Function, Mark on the plug.

Seven wire Trailer plugs
:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Yellow = Left turn/Brake - 5
Green = Right turn Brake - 6
Orange or Purple (not both) = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7

Recreational Vehicle:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Green = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Red = Left turn/Brake - 5
Brown = Right turn Brake - 6
Yellow = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7


Six wire trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Not used -
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S


Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights


Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

Best regards
Mike

When attempting to jump start the vehicle positive battery cable heats up and smokes. What should be connected to the solenoid switch on the same post as the positive battery cable?


there should be charging leads from the alternator, and a feed wire leading to the main power/relay box just behind the solinoid. there might also be a few more leads depending on your truck. There should only be one on the other side leading to the starter. you need to replace that battery cable, a bad cable can cause symptoms similar to a dead battery

Dead battery...was told to keep power to the engine when changing battery or it would cause problems to the gauges, etc. Is this true?


If your hooking up a battery charger you can attach it to your battery without removing anything. I would not have your engine running while your charging it cause that doesn't make sense to be using your battery and charging it at the same time. You can also remove the battery from the car if you wish to isolate the battery. be sure to remove to negative cable first otherwise you could cause a short and that could lead to all kinds of problems. Not really sure where your friends got there info but your engine already doesn't have power cause your battery is dead. your best bet is to remove the battery and charge it, then test it, then hook it back up. When you hook it back up be sure to attach the negative cable last.
