They don't have one. use a body ground like the bolts on top of the strut tower. fyi the battery is underneath the back seat. to pull the seat push in on the cushion and lit up at the same time, You will have to push in really hard. This was one of the most dumb ideas to come from gm

How do you give a jump start to someone using a 2007 Dodge Charger?


The underhood connections can work by themselves...POS to POS, and NEG to NEG...sometimes dirty/weak connections do not allow the power to transfer fully from the underhood connections...if this is the case then you need to connect directly to the battery in trunk for full power charge...again POS to POS, and NEG to NEG...hope this helps

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 need instructions on how to jump start a car (mainly because i always forget which vehicle needs to have both cables connected to both batt. posts and which needs to have one on batt. post and the other...


Start with positive cable on the positive post of donor car (the one giving a jump). Other end on positive post of donee car (the one getting the jump). Now negative cable on battery post of donor car, and other end of negative cable on a metal piece of the donee car-the one getting jumped.

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.

Engine will not turn over. No electrical power anywhere. Battery is good.Checked all fuses.

Jump the battery


What do you need to know? Positive to positive neg to neg. ON the Grand prix it is hard to get to the terminals on the battery. Hook the positive clamp to the postive bolt covered with the red plastic cover near the battery. Neg to the metal part of the engine.

Installed new baterry and new alternator...battery or alternator dies in one day


the alternator will not die in one day unless there is a direct short causing diode or coil winding failure which would give signs of smell, melted wires. Disconnect battery and give full charge. what year is this? while vehicle is running you should be able to briefly disconnect positive battery post connection and vehicle will still run if alternator is good. For a new battery to die in one day, one of two things i think has happened. Either the batt is faulty from supplier,( not likely but i have seen it ) or there is a direct draw or grounding taking place whether its direct in the starter selonoid or a direct draw through accessories. Are you sure all switches are off ? Push switches (on interior lights) nothing like dome lights,delayed lights are staying on! Does vehicle start hard like it almost needs a jump. If it has to be (and it takes time). to find out what is drawing the power ( i am old school) disconnect positive power source on batt. 2) disconnect ignition power source on starter. 3) connect pos batt wire to starter, 4) touch positive cable to positive batt post and look for spark or contact. if this reacts then selonoid or starter motor is shorted drawing the current. Or if you have volt meter and know how to use it, this is good to. If checks good then hook ignition connection back on starter.(disconnect pos terminal on batt prior to re-connect) I think the battery is having the life sucked out of it by a short in the system ( A DRAW ) this could be a quick find or fix or this could take days to track down. alot of variables here to try to explain. but i would seek into the starter first as usually this drains the battery quickly .

I have a 99 BMW. Head lights have 2 wires, 1


Do have access to a volt meter or an old school 12volt test light? Turn the light on with the light harness loose from the light assy. and test each wire to the frame or the negative post of the battery. The wire that has voltage or will light the light is your 12v pos.You can make a test light using a old 1157 tail light bulb, using 2 wires tape one wire to the base metal and the other, hold on the silver bulb tip with one hand, put one end of the wire on the batt. neg. post and use the other wire to search for the voltage in the light harness, voltage will light the bulb..
