GO TO THE BANK AND GET A BIG LOAN FOR THE REPAIRS. CROSSING THE BATTERY LEADS CAN CAUSE MAJOR DAMAGE BUT BEFORE YOU GO TO THE BANK CHECK THE LARGE MAXI FUSE IN THE FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD. IF YOU GOT LUCKY THE FUSE BLEW AND PROTECTED THE ELECTRONICS..

I have a 1999 honda accord with issues.. i have replaced a leaking battery and terminals. the car wouldnt start before that. after changing the battery, i have no power at all inside the car.


when the battery leaked on top of the battery ?
It would have had corrosion on the battery terminals like a white chalky residue ?
You may need to get a rat tail file and gently file the inside of the terminals to clean the corrosion off or buy new replacement battery terminals and reattach to the battery cables.

If you have a volt meter put the negative probe directly on the negative battery post and put the positive probe directly on the positive post of the battery. If you read 12 volts then try doing this on the battery terminal connectors and see if they read 12 Volts.

Corrosion might be in the cables depends on how bad the leak was .

Something is depleting the battery or the problem is the battery itself. (Those power antenna is the worst depletion of battery.) Unplug the negative terminal for five minutes and see if it starts or just unplug the negative terminal and charge the battery for ten minutes and then reconnect the negative to see if it starts. (Insert car key and turn to the second position.) Once, I even have a wire from the Starter's positive side ready to contact the battery positive. The car started this way.

How do I get my battery to recharge?


two things.

first,
you can remove your battery and have it charge somewhere else if you dont have a home charger or if you have a home charger, you can just hook up the red cable to the positive terminal of the battery and the black cable to the negative terminal.

second,
if you have a jumper cable, these cables have a pair of black and red alligator clips, use them to connect another car's battery in parallel to yours.

use a pair in your battery, put the red one in your positive terminal and put the black one in the negative terminal. be careful that the other pair on the other end dose not touch with each other. somebody should be holding them apart.

then o the other end where there is a good battery, start the car , now put the black clip to the negative terminal of the battery and then put the red clip to the positive terminal.
there should be a spark as you put the last red clip so be careful.

let it be for about 15-20 mins. you can rev up the running cars from time to time.

then after 2- min, you can start your car.

you will only fry your computer if there is a wrong lead on a wrong terminal so be very careful in choosing which terminal is positive and which is negative.

the positive terminal is marked with a plus sign "+ "
the negative terminal is marked with a minus sign " - "

tnx 4 using fixya,
