Check your fuses to your radio... the reversed polarity may have been blown... Alot of aftermarket stereos have a fuse in the line to the power of the radio ..be sure to look there too.

Had to jump car cuz battery was and dead and tmsp is all lines how do i reset it


to jump start a car the following procedure applies
place the positive lead from the jump battery onto the positive terminal of the car battery (clip on)
place the negative lead of the jump battery onto the engine ( clip on) not the car battery terminal
this prevents power surges through the ECM
remove the jump battery is the reverse procedure
to reset an ECM use a scan tool
there are jumper leads now on the market which have surge protection in a lead so in that case positive to positive and negative to negative

2005 dodge neon won't start I've jumped it off with jumper cables and take cables off it and it dies. i got another alternator and tried to jump it and it died when i took jumper cables off still????


I would suggest that you have a load test done on the existing battery as the indications are that it has several dead cells
the vehicle starts of the jumper battery but on removing the leads there is nothing with which to keep the ignition circuit operational
alternators need a current from the battery to start charging as they do not have residual magnetism in the stator so when you take the jumper leads off there is nothing to keep the alternator charging hence no power for the ignition circuit.

Why my car is dead after sitting for 3 days. when first hooked up jumper cables the interior lights came on then went off and wouldnt even turn over


If your battery is dead after 3 days it's probably getting stuffed or else you left something on. Anyway jump starting should work regardless. How good are your jumper leads? You need a pretty heavy set to start a car not those skinny things you get at super cheap auto stores. Hook them up and start car you're jumping off and run it at a high idle for about 5 min then try and start your car. That should put a base charge into your battery and it should go. If not buy a new battery.

Were.do I hook up the power to instaall into anotheer car


Are you asking how to hook up some jumper cables? If so, connect the two leads on the car you're jumping to the positive and negative terminals on the battery. Then connect the leads on the other end of the cables to the positive terminal (same cable as on the car to be jumped) on your battery and the other lead to a good "ground" (a manifold bolt, chassis bolt or - least desirable - the negative terminal of your battery). Be careful not to touch together or cross/switch the leads on either end of the cables once one end has been connected.
If that isn't what you're asking about, post back and we'll go from there.

2005 nissan murano jump started witnow it will only idle but will not accelerateh jumper cables reversed


NOT SURE WHAT YOU SAYING ? WHEN GETTING JUMP STARTED, THE BATTERY FROM THE GOOD VEHICLE MUST PLACE JUMPER CABLES ON BATTERY TERMINALS, THE CAR BEING JUMPED, YOURS, THE (+) TERMINAL IS JUMPED FROM GOOD BATTERY, THEN THE (-) JUMPER CABLE FROM GOOD BATTERY GETS CLAMPED TO YOUR CARS FRAME OR ENGINE BLOCK, NOT YOUR DEAD BATERY !!!!!!! YOU MAY HAVE SHORTED SOMETHING OUT, MAYBE EVEN YOUR COMPUTER CHIP IN THE ECM ! YOU NEED A MASTER TECH TO HELP YOU ON THIS ONE, I WOULD'NT TOUCH THIS WITH A TEN FOOT POLE ! SORRY, I COULD BE WRONG, BUT, NOT AN EASY ISSUE OVER THE NET !!!!!!

My battery went flat. I went to start it with jump leads but its not working the smartlock keeps making a thuding noise. is there a trick to it or should it just recharge with the jumper leads.


Hi, are you trying to jump from another car or just a battery? Sounds like you are not getting enough juice. Recommend you jump from a car that is running. After getting it started, remove the jumpers and check your voltage at the battery. If it's less than 14 volts, take the alternator off and have it tested. Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Tried to jump my 2003 galant and the cables would spark when trying to connect negative


Be ceratin you have jumper cables to correct terminals. Also, you may connect both jumper cables to the battery of the car your getting power from (be certain not to let other ends of cables touch) connect the positive lead of car being jumped to the battery's positive terminal, then connect the negative lead to the cars ground, not directly to the negative on the battery. Getting a spark when jumping is very common. You do not want to create the spark at the battery because the fumes from the battery acid can be explosive...... That can go very bad! When removing remove the grounded, to the jumped car, and then carefully remove the rest. Again be certain to not let the leads touch.

Please let me know if this had assited you,

Thanks,
Tom

How to jump start it


To jump start any car, you will need to have either a portable jump starter (that look like the ones found here: http://www.autobarn.com.au/products/7/45/3022812/) or have jumper leads which look like alligator clips.

To use either option, attach one side of the jumper cables to to your battery, then attach the other end to another car battery (or in the case of the portable jump starter, it will be already connected with the unit).

Ensure the correct color cable is attached to the correct battery terminal (metal point on battery), i.e. red to red, black to black.

Caution: Car batteries have a high amperage and can lead to electrocution if you touch both metal points on the battery. Always be careful when doing so and if unsure, do not attempt to do so without assistance from a competent individual.
