Hooked battery up backwards car won't start changed fusible link got power changed starter new battery


BY hooking up the battery the wrong way it is possible that you have blown up the CPU and ECM. IF you can get hold of another unit hook it up and see if it starts / fires . IF so the that will be the problem

I changed the battery on my 01 caravan n now the blinkers dont work nor do any of the gages ive done all the fuses and checked all the battery connections can anyone help


Either the battery got hooked up backwards and there is a blown fuse or a burned fusible link, or you did not connect all the wires to the positive battery terminal (there should be three).

I'm sure that if it got hooked up backwards, you will know about it (there would have been lots of sparking going on).

If this is the case, check fuse #24 in the Power Distribution Center (20 Amp) in the engine compartment. If this fuse is good, it should have power on BOTH sides of the fuse when it is checked with a test lamp. If there is no power on either side, then the fusible link either did not get connected to the battery or is got fried. The fusible link itself is ORANGE and is a 20-Gauge fusible link.

I bought a new battery for my 94 celica and hooked it up backwards. Not realising it at the time, i tried starting it before I realised it was hooked up wrong. Now car wont start and brake/tail lights, and...


check the fusible links running from your positive wire. they are just what they sound like wires that act like fuses. if they are good then You probably blew the ecm or "computer".

I accidentally hooked up jumper cables backwards when I was trying to jump start my 97 Ford Escort. Needless to say, it was not good. It started to spark and caught on fire. I was eventually able to get it...


I bet you saw some dramatic sparks when you hooked the jumpers up backwards!
The good news is that if your ignition switch was turned to the "off" position when this happened, the fix may be simpler and cheaper than you think. This car has one or more "fusible links" in its primary wiring. They may look like a thick piece of wire, but they act as super-fuses in the the case of large-scale power shorts and the like. Fusible links are typically in-line, so you won't see them in either your under-hood or under-dash fuse boxes. If you're lucky, you blew a fusible link right off the bat, saving the rest of your electrical system from serious harm.
If your ignition was turned to the "on" position when the battery was hooked up backwards, you have a more serious risk that you damaged your on-board computer. However, even if your computer were fried, your dome light, your hazard blinkers, and probably your headlights and turn signals (different circuit than the hazard lights, believe it or not, even though it's to the same bulbs) would continue to operate.
I'm going to recommend that you should check for one or more blown fusible links. Good luck!

2005 chevy tahoe battery was hooked up backward !! Not me ! But, Where do I start ?


Start by checking all of the fuses and all of the fusible link wires, and you will know a fusible link wire when you find one because they will stretch similar to a rubber band. Fusible link wires are usually located at the fuse/relay junction box in the engine compartment, or at the starter solenoid, or sometimes at the fire-wall. Also check the fuse/relay junction box for any PAL type of fusible links.

Gosh i hope you didnt pop a computer,turn the key on,pop the hood and see i any outboard sensor connectors is reading 5 volts ...like a temp sensor or tps. If there is no 5 volt referance readings at any of those outboard sensors .you might start looking in that direction

Your problem is you blew a fusible link. Located in a black box in front of the battery are the fusible links. The one lablled battery is blown. The fusible link is a loop of insulated wire that will melt in cases where too much current is passing throught the wire. You will notice a burnt smell as well. A simple continuity test of the fusible link will show that it is open. Go to a junk yard or order through nissan and you will be good to go. If you make your own make sure of the type of wire and the gauge.
