How to replace battery cables on a 2001 mustang conv 3.8L V6 eng

Firstly, take note of your radio codes then get a small motorcycle battery and make up or buy a jumper plug that goes in your cigar lighter socket, ensuring you have the polarity correct. This will keep any codes alive when you disconnect the main battery. Make sure the ignition key is OUT because the cigar socket won't take any current. Remove the negative cable first. Then the positive. Replace the positive cable from the battery to starter terminal or where ever its fitted. Replace the negative / ground cable ensuring a good clean ground is made. When both cables are properly clipped up as per the original arrangement then reattach the Positive first, then the Neg or ground next. Remove your temporary battery from the cigar socket and with a bit of luck your radio codes should be good. Take your time and check out how difficult it is to reach the starter terminal connection before you start. Some are a bi*ch.

Hey I'm looking for the tension for a conrod cap for my v6 holden vectra 2.6 ltr.. 10/2001 could u help me?? Thanks

Try a local non franchised specialist who may have engine torque figures in a vehicle specs publication.
I believe this is what we have in the UK as a Vauxhall Vectra V6, if I find something I'll let you know. In the meantime see whats on ebay on a cd?

I have a 2.5 v6 vectra b gsi just had a recent misfire changed spark plugs and ht leads but no change. Tried second coil packs and all show no fire on number 5. What else could be the problem?

This code I asume is P0305, this is a code that indicates that the cylinder power is below specs compared to other cylinders. The causes of this are many, ignition is just one of them. Does that cylinder have compression ( No more than 5% lower than the hightest reading on all other cylinders)

Auto wiring

you should use a relay so that the fridge is only powered when your kia engine is running. reason being to stop the towing vehicle going flat if connected direct onto the other battery when parked for a long time.if this wont be a problem as in you have a hook up when parked and not using the towing vehicle just connect the wire direct onto the battery thru a fuse.hope this helps

pin 2 blue, supplementary feed (ignition)
pin 3 white, earth
pin 4 green live feed (battery +)
pin 5 brown not connected
pin 6 red supplementary feed (ignition)
Pin 7 black earth

On the discovery there is a purpose made plug behind the panel on the drivers side rear, behind the rear lamp
i think the relay you have bought is for lamp failure you just need a normal 4 pin 30 amp relay.
Good luck Davelee

Solar battery charger

Yes, but the efficiency of solar cells is terrible. Its one thing to use free sunlught to charge the cells, its another to have to pay the electric company to do it. If you can access the batteries in the solar rig easily and they are in the correct voltage range, I think you would be better off getting a battery tender (trickle charger). Just let the van sit outside until the batteries are fully charged, then connect the battery tender to keep it fully charged.
