SOURCE: ground wire from fire wall into negative battery

First, be sure that there is a ground strap, cable or wire from three spots:
1. from neg. side of battery to block
2. from block to firewall
3. from firewall to battery

The above will give you a good ground. You might also want to add a ground from one of the above to the vehicle frame just to be sure.

How to remove the battery


Always remove the negative battery cable first. That will avoid the possibility of causing a spark trying to remove the positive first.
So you take a wrench and remove the negative post. If it is a sidepost battery, use an 8 mm wrench to remove the center bolt on the cable. If a top post battery, use the appropriate wrench to remove the negative cable terminal.
Now you can safely loosen and remove the positive battery connection.
Battery is now free to remove, but wait, there is a holding fixture on most batteries so it won't move around or tip over. Either a top bracket that hold battery stable, or there is a small little block at bottom of battery, like a wedge, to hold it secure. This block or wedge is retained by a small bolt, usually 1/2 inch size hex on the bolt (or 13 mm size, which is very close to 1/2 inch). remove this holding block or wedge and battery should come4 out. On some GM models there is a brace which is over the battery, and this brace must be removed for battery removal. Take one end of brace loose and swing it out of the way.

Can't find the starter in my 97 buick park avenue


    • 1 Open the hood of your Buick, and locate the negative battery cable. Remove the bolt securing the cable to the battery, using a wrench, then remove and isolate the cable from the battery terminal.
    • 2 Place a jack under the front of the car, and raise the driver's side of the car. Secure the car on a jack stand positioned under the frame of the car, then remove the jack.
    • 3 Locate the starter from under the driver's side of the car(right of transmission).More than likely there will be a black cover over the bolts, so take it off first, i think the bolt on the corner holds the cover on and its 12 mm i believe. Find the two wiring harness connections on the back of the starter solenoid. They are both stud and nut terminals and are marked "B" and "S." Remove the retaining nuts from both terminals, using a socket and ratchet, then remove the wires from the terminals. Make note of which wire came off which terminal; the "B" terminal should have the bigger, red wire.
    • 4 Locate the two mounting bolts at the front of the starter which should be 15 mm. They install from the bottom of the starter, threading up into the engine block. Remove both bolts with a socket and ratchet while supporting the starter so it does not fall on you. Remove the starter from the engine compartment and set it aside.
    • 5 Lift a new starter into the engine compartment, and position it up against the engine block. Install the two mounting bolts into the holes in the starter, then thread them into the engine block. Tighten the bolts to 32 ft.-pounds of torque with a torque wrench and socket.
    • 6 Connect the two wiring harness connections to the starter solenoid, matching the large red wire to the "B" terminal and the other wire to the "S" terminal. Install the retaining nut on the "B" terminal to 12 ft.-pounds with a torque wrench. Tighten the nut on the "S" terminal to 22 inch-pounds with a torque wrench.
    • 7 Lift the front of the car with a jack, and remove the jack stand. Lower the Buick to the ground and remove the jack from under the car.
    • 8 Connect the negative battery cable to the negative battery terminal, then tighten the retaining bolt with a wrench. Test the repair by starting the engine, ensuring the starter is functioning properly.

Where is the negative battery cable connected on the battery of a 1993 lincoln continental town car? There are three cables and where are they all connected? thanks. Barb


The posative cable is red and/or has a + sign on the batterey terminal. The negative terminal is on the opposite side, and is black and/or - sign. The third is most likely a ground that goes from the negative terminal to something metal on the engine, just follow it.. It is possible that the third wire goes to an alarm or radio, or some device that requires power like an installed radar detector or GPS. If this is the case then it should have a fuse betwwen it and the battery, and sometimes it is in the device itself.
