When not running the engine for a week, the battery dies. When I jump start it, engine will start cranking very slow and pickup speed before it starts running.


it seems like the battery is going. clean battery terminals, also the grounding to the body (engine block, transmission, etc.) all should be shiny cleaned. suggest you go to autozone (or other auto parts) for a free battery & alternator tests.

Convert battery cables from top post to side mount replacement ends?


If all you are doing is changing to a side post battery, just connect all the positive cables from the old pos post to the new pos holder and all the neg ones to the new neg holder. If you've already cut them all off and not sure where each wire goes, all the reds are positive, all the blacks are neg. To make sure use your continuity meter to test. Connect one meter lead to any good clean metal part on the car and test between each black wire in turn, the neg ones will show a circuit, the pos ones will not.

I've already replaced the starter, battery, terminal posts, and alternator. It will start of a jump after charging for about ten minutes but will not start when switching the batteries out. It just do


Could be poor battery connections or bad (corroded) cables. Put a voltmeter on the battery: ideal would be over 12.6 volts, if less than 12.2 volts, recharge battery.

If you have a voltmeter, google "voltage drop test" to see how to check for high resistance to current flow. Check the positive battery cable from battery to the starter. It may help you find a poor connection.

I replaced the battery terminal cable ends. Now the car will not start, There is a clicking noise from the starter.


Bad connection on cable ends or where they connect to battery. Quick check is if you have a good set of jumper cables, use the jumper cable as a replacement for what maybe the defective one. Hook negative cable good to battery neg. post and then put other side on neg cable to engine ground on block. See if it cranks, if it does than the trouble is on the neg. cable. If not then put positive cable on pos. post of battery. Then put other side of pos. cable on the starter post, try to start. If it cranks then the trouble is on the pos side of cable. Hope this helps.

Gauge showing low output alt only 1yr old wondering if it could be regulator or batt or wiring


if you have access to a digital multimeter, connect the meter (set to volts) across positive and neg. terminal of the battery, should read roughly 12.6 volts, close to 10 volts, battery may be going out, also test the alt output, disconnect neg term and place negative lead to battery neg post and positive lead to neg battery cable (make sure meter is set to amps) should read near the rating, if both those, then you'd want to do a resistance test, (set meter to Ohms) disconnect battery and connect meter neg to either pos cable terminal or where the pos cable connects to the alt and connect positive lead to opposite of neg, should read next to 0, the check resistance of the ground by connecting meter between batt neg cable and body of alt.

Were is negative. Battery post


The negative battery cable is black and the positive battery cable is red.
The positive battery cable will lead to the starter while the negative battery cable will connect to the body of the car which is negatively grounded.

Always remove the neg. battery cable first, and then the pos. battery cable second. And install in the opposite direction, pos. battery cable first, and then finally the neg. battery cable to the battery.

Also, many batteries have the (+) and (-) posts labeled in an embossed fashion on the plastic case.

Do not reverse, or else the vehicle's electronics can be fried.

Good luck on this repair.

Battery will dran over a short time and is the second new battery


The best way I have found to hunt down a current draw is with a multi meter set to the DCA setting (this will detect DC current flow). With the vehicle shut off, systematically remove fuses one at a time and place the leads from the meter in the connectors that held the fuse (one lead per fuse connection). You should have a little current flowing to the radio, for the clock, and maybe some to the engine computer and, if equipped, the alarm, the rest of the circuits should have no draw. This will narrow down your search to one circuit in the car, which can than be further diagnosed, usually it's a wire with the insulation rubbed through.
P.S. if the car has any after market equipment, such as audio amplifiers, start your search there. Hope this helps, good luck!!!!

The jeep cranks but has trouble turning over. There is a new starter and batter. Could it be spark plugs?


What it could be is a bad earth lead to the battery.Or bad connection at either end of it.Try this.Get some jump cable leads(booster leads).Hook one end to the neg.terminal of the battery and the other end to a solid point on the motor.This will give a good earth.Crank the motor.If it cranks faster,its the neg.cable to the battery.Remove and clean both end and replace.Hope this helps
