Were is negative. Battery post


The negative battery cable is black and the positive battery cable is red.
The positive battery cable will lead to the starter while the negative battery cable will connect to the body of the car which is negatively grounded.

Always remove the neg. battery cable first, and then the pos. battery cable second. And install in the opposite direction, pos. battery cable first, and then finally the neg. battery cable to the battery.

Also, many batteries have the (+) and (-) posts labeled in an embossed fashion on the plastic case.

Do not reverse, or else the vehicle's electronics can be fried.

Good luck on this repair.

Hello. Yes. the black wire is the ground wire. It goes from the frame to the negative post of the battery. The red wire is the hot wire and it goes to the positive post.

Connect battery cables in 2004 Ford Expedition


Are you trying to jump it? Or are you replacing the cables entirely? If replacing them, (Read all my instructions for the cautions involved) then unscrew the negative post cable first and then your positive side from your battery. Be careful not to touch them together while your are taking the cables apart. Once the battery is not connected, find the easiest cable to replace first, I think it will be the negative. Do not connect the battery yet!!!!, second the red cable indicating the hot cable will be next. That cable might be longer because on fords, unless I am mistaken should be connected to the starter or on fords an external starter solenoid. Connect that. Once you have replaced both cables, it's time to connect the red cable to the battery. Be careful that the negative side cable is not touching the ground or vehicle because you will see a shocking spark. Once that is connected it's time for the negative side to be connected to the battery black side. The battery has positive indicators (+) and negative indicators (-) may be color coded also + (red) - (black). DO NOT CROSS THEM BECAUSE THE CHARGE MIGHT BE ENOUGH TO BLOW THE BATTERY ( DANGER) I cannot stress this enough. You do not want to be around when a battery blows. They are dangerous. Use caution ok. Don't be that person that goes to the hospital with burns from acid.

Battery cables FRYED!


Battery cables can be purchased at any auto parts store. Always remove the Negative cable first. The positive cable connects to the solenoid to the starter. After removing both cables, connect the positive cable to eh solenoid to the starter, and route it up to the battery. If the new battery has protective caps on it, leave them on for now. Connect the negative cable to the ground. Connect the positive cable to the battery (remove the caps) Once secure, connect the negative cable to the battery (be very careful not to touch anything metal) IMPORTANT: Make sure the Positve cable is connected tot eh Positeve battery terminal (indicated by the + sign. The Negative cable connects to teh Negative post indicated by the - sign. I hope this answers your question fully and best of luck to you!
