Removed bAttery from 2004 mini Cooper and accidentally closed the trunk where the battery go, how do I open the trunk when the key will not unlock the trunk


In the engine compartment you'll find a positive terminal you can use. Use jump cables to connect the positive and negative terminal of another car to this and some part well grounded in the engine compartment. After this your car got current from the other car and the trunk should now open. Brgds Jonas

If you look at the engine area you will see the postive jump point, let me see if i can locate a picture of this location.heres a diagram of the engine compartment, theres a fuse /relay box in the left rear, this is if you are standing in the front of the car looking in engine compartment, look for a terminal to connect the postive cable and ground the other to metal in the engine compartment, this is only to be used to acess the truck to get to battery, also look around the engine most times theres a postive hook up sometimes neear or on motor,good day,johnjohn2_115.gif

How to replace a starter for a 96 toyota 4runner, 4wd, 6cyl


  1. Connect the battery ammeter to the starter as shown in the illustration.



0900c15280060948.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 4: Make the connections to the battery, ammeter and starter as shown here

  1. Check the rotation of the starter, it must be smooth and steady with the pinion gear moving outwards. Compare the ammeter reading to the starter specifications chart.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figure 5
Replacing the starter while the engine is cold is recommended. A hot engine can result in personal injury.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the nut and disconnect the battery cable from the magnetic switch on the starter motor.
  3. Disconnect the remaining electrical connections at the starter.
  4. Remove the nuts and/or bolts securing the starter to the bell housing, then pull the starter toward the front of the vehicle to remove.

To install:
  1. Insert the starter into the bell housing being sure that the starter drive teeth are engaged with the flywheel teeth, not jammed against the flywheel.
  2. Tighten the attaching hardware to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm) and replace all electrical connections.

Fig. Fig. 5: Exploded view of a common starter mounting found on Toyota trucks

  1. Connect the positive battery cable (starter wire) to the starter.
  2. Connect the negative battery cable.

RELAY REPLACEMENT

See Figure 6
The starter relays on most of your Toyota trucks are located either in the relay block in the engine compartment or on the driver's side junction block. The cover for the relay compartments should be marked, "starter'' or the relay will have a part number with a suffix of 28300-XXXXX. Simply locate the relay, pull it out, and install a new one if needed.

Where do you jump start a 2001 reg S class from. i have just brought one but cant get into the boot


Hi,
Jump starting means, connecting two cables to boost the power of your battery from another power source( another normal powered battery ).
You must look first for your battery, that is located in the engine compartment.
Connect a jump cables from the positive( + ) pole of your battery to another car w/ the same voltage of battery, connect another cable to negative( - ) pole of the another battery to your engine expose metal ground. DO NOT START YOUR ENGiNE/TURN ON. Let the other car start the engine, let it charge for 15 minutes.
Then, pull out the cables attach to your battery and to another. YOU MAY TURN YOUR ENGiNE and START the engine.
Hope that fixes your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!

2003 buick wont start


put a load test on the battery. the battery could have 12 volts until a load is put on it then it looses voltage fast. have the battery tested not just checking how many volts it has,also check the ground to engine and power to fuse box in engine compartment. ive seen these cars melt the connection that runs from the battery to fuse/relay box, the where the connection connects to the fuse box you may find the bad connection there but first have battery tested.

Just changed the stater, however, it will only click when i turn the key, any suggestions


In order to have the starter work, the solenoid has to close the positive connection to the starter. The solenoid now is corroded inside, when it click to engage the contact inside, but the contact is not good to conduct the current to the starter. Therefore your starter is not turning. Need to replace the solenoid. it is on top of your starter. Here is the image. 5cc5b1b.jpg

Car wont start?


May sound stupid, but use a voltmeter to double check your batteries' charge.

Just cause its new..stranger things have happened..

Check your battery connections? tight?

Check your grounds around the engine compartment frame.

Loose? Rusty?

Check starter ground for same problem.

Check the fuses and relays in the fuse box in the engine compartment.

Your main heavy duty components are fused there.

Good luck.
