Question about 1991 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Car jump started incorrectly

I have a 1991 Honda Civic that would not start, because the headlights were left on. tried to jump start it, but the jumper cables were put on incorrectly (only on the dead car). the battery started smoking, so we removed the cables. that's when i noticed my cousin put them on backwards. we tried putting them on the correct way, but nothing. The car wouldn't start, and nothing would come on.

I returned home from a week vacation and left my 2009 Honda Civic in the garage completely fine, no trouble at all. When I got back and tried to start it up, it was completely dead. Ok, dead battery was...


The first thing I want to mention is that if the vehicle goes crazy like that make sure you are jumping it correctly with positive and negative in the right locations. The reason I mention is because if it is jumped incorrectly it will cause the vehicle to make the alarm go off like that and could fry your whole electrical system. Try jumping the car it may be a alarm issue, that goes off when power returns to the vehicle, use the remote to try and shut it off. If that gives you no luck, then turn next to your charging system. This would mean your alternator or starter, either one of the two could have gave out on you during that period. If that still does not work check all your fuses to see if there are any popped, and also try and get it to a autorepair shop, they would be able to determine of a sensor has affected an electrical component within the system. My best gues would be either a short or a problem with your charging system. Those two aspects would be you'r best bet.

Hope This Helps!
