    The battery set up is not typical to anything I have seen in the past the ngative terminal is bolted to a conductor that makes a 90 degree bend that is surrounded by plastic there is a fusable link visible through a sight window and then has a connection for 2 negative cables. The cables are in good shape but the clamp portion is seized to the connector this shoulod be an easy fix but the mazda dealer cnat find a part number for just what I need . I cant find a mazda 5 in the u-pull it lots not can I find a part oput mazda 5 on line I cant be the only one that has had this problem

In the past I have found the fusible links at the autoparts store but taking off the old one matching it up. The one I worked on was bolted from the back side.

IT seems that you are in a spot of bother here . Battery cables can be manufactured by an accredited auto electrician so find a good shop and have then make what you want. Normally negative cables (earth cables have no fuses) so I suspect that with all the extra cables and fusible link that you are looking at the positive cable. However take the vehicle to the auto electrician and he will be able to make the cable for you or repair the end .

Removing either battery cable, thereby taking the battery out of the circuit, with the engine running can cause the alternator to charge full tilt and destroy sensitive micro volt (computer controlled) components; and I've seen wiring harnesses go up in flame from it. You may have a module problem.

SOURCE: my 1983 mazda rx7 had a dash melt down and i need to replace the wiring behind it. can i get a whole new loom and harness?

Yes. Before you go brand new, however, look around on E-Bay or at a junk yard-you can usually find what you need right there, and with some relays to prevent issues, you can get better than new. On the other hand, A magazine like http://www.blackdragonauto.com/features/rx/RX.htm might have a good wiring set. I trust that magazine- I get a sister production, LMC trucks, and they're reasonable priced, and good quality parts.

How do you change the positive battery cable?


Make sure to disconnect the Negative battery cable first. Then you can do pretty much anything without making a short. Leave negative wire disconnected and then go wire by wire on the harness if there are smaller wires in the loom. Use a lubricating product on the threads, both the lead and copper metals are soft and do not reef on battery terminal when wrenching the retaining nuts, Use a protectorant after you are done.

Have a delcotron alternator ,what to know where no.1 terminal and no.2terminal wire goes it is on my 1946 cj2a jeep my amp hand does not show a charge had alternator checked out and is ok


  • Use a wrench to remove the negative and positive battery cables: They are clearly labeled "+" and "-." Always remove the negative cable first, as this isolates the power to the metal parts of your car. Tuck the cables away from the battery as you don't want them to accidentally touch a battery terminal when you're wiring your alternator.

  • 3

    Locate the alternator terminals. There are two: one marked "live," "pos" or "+" and the other marked "neg," "field" or "-."

  • 4

    Locate the two cables. The positive (red) cable goes to your battery via a wire loom or harness. The negative (black) cable attaches to a metal part of your car.

  • 5

    Check how the cables attach to the alternator terminals. Some connect using eyelets that hook over the terminal and tighten with a bolt; others connect by inserting the wire under the terminal and tightening a bolt.

  • 6

    Loosen the two bolts using a suitable-sized wrench or, if the cables connect using eyelets, remove the bolts.

  • 7

    Insert the exposed end of the negative (black) cable under the loosened bolt on the negative terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 8

    Insert the exposed end of the positive (red) cable under the loosened bolt on the positive terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 9

    Replace the positive battery cable on the positive battery terminal using a wrench. Replace the negative battery cable on the negative battery terminal.

    Battery cable broken


    no you can buy a new terminal end and solder it back on, if you don't have a torch solder and a bench to do it on a new cable is cheaper

    Go to an auto repair store and have them check everything. If you do not know cars, your best bet is to get it checked out rather than take risks.
