Question about 2000 Lincoln LS
There's four wires altogether. one is connected from the silinoid to the starter. one is right above that one which is the ground. One to the left of the one next to the silinoid which i think goes the battery. Then there is an additional one that's sorta connected to the battery one i think. that's the one i am having trouble with. need help bad before i mess it real bad or something.
Yes, you could mess it real bad if you connect a hot wire to ground. As I recall, there is a thick wire to battery-plus. And there is a smaller wire to the key starting switch or to a starting relay. Oh, there is also another larger one that fastens on with the battery-plus, to run the rest of the car. That's all I remember. And the sizes of the bolts onto which they go make it obvious which goes where. Ground is usually through the engine block, but battery negative might be nearby too. Just don't make any huge sparks, okay?
