You probably blew a fuse in the fuse box. Better check them all.

First check and make sure the cables are attached to the correct posts. positive to positive and neg to neg. If so, make sure the battery is charged. Even new batteries can be defective. Try jumping it with a booster box or jumper cables. Check your main fuse. During installation, if the cables crossed it could have popped your fuse. Good luck

New battery new batterycabel ends started ,now it wont even click no power to anything


Sounds like a fusible link burned out. Check the wires at the battery cable post of the starter. The smaller wires connected here are the fusible links if equipped. If not then check where the smaller positive cable off the battery goes to the fuse box. It will be connected to fuses there which could be burned out.

My 1990 mercury grand marquis was boosted wrong


Might need to check the main circuits for a blown fuse or fuseable link.
There is a fuse wire between the alternator and battery.

Why have i lost all electrical power to my 1974 dodge tradesman van


With the battery connected, did you check the fuseable link which is the pigtail wire on the positive cable ?
If nothing works, it has to be a bad cable, bad connection, or one of the major fuseable links from the battery to the fuse box.

2001 Jetta TDI Battery drain??


If you suspect the alternator, disconnect the 12V line coming directly from the battery and check for current drain. Are you sure the current unit is in ampere (A) and not milliampere (mA)? A 5A current will drain your battery in about an hour. A 5mA current is just about normal considering the parasitic load (radio memory chip, clock, ECM memory circuit, etc.). Try checking your battery. It could be the real culprit.

Left key on and killed battery. Now it dies when I come to a stop or slow down, and it doesn't idle right and dies most of the time. What can be causing this?


A discharged battery should be recharged with an external battery charger--about 2 to 3 hours with a high-current (10 to 30 amps) charger, overnight with a low-current charger (2-4 amps). Check the battery voltage after charging and the engine running--it should read about 13.5 volts if the the alternator is working. It will read 12.6 or less volts if the alternator is bad, or the fuse link is blown in the wire that runs from the alternator output to the starter solenoid connection where the positive battery cable is connected. Once the battery is charged, take the car to Autozone or similar business that will provide a free check of the battery and charging system if you don't have access to a voltmeter. Hope this helps!
