Yes, remove the rubber protection cap. You need only the properly sized wrench; if available use a box end or socket as these bolts can soften over time and the head of the bolt can get rounded off, making it harder to remove. It should come free quite easily.

I need to jump start my Dodge Stratus 2005 but can't find the positive terminal. The vehicle booklet has a photo that does not correspond to the configuration I see.

Look for a red colored rubber/plastic tube, and pull it up. It covers a metal piece that is connected to the battery positive post. Use this for the positive clamp of the jumper cables. Be sure to replace the red plastic piece when done.

What side is the positive sign on battery?

The "+" sign indicates positive, it usually has a red cover over it. without looking at the battery I can't tell you which side it is on. The Positive cable is usually Red and the Negative is usually Black.

How to get cover off top of engine

1. Unplug the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor.
2. Undo the spring clips and pull out the turbo inlet connector.

3. Remove the two T-25 screws on the air snorkle as shown below.
4. Remove the engine cover by pulling up HARD where indicated by the green circles in the photo below.
5. DO NOT APPLY ANY FORCE where indicated by the red diamonds in the photo below.
6. If it's cold weather, make sure the engine is warm so that the rubber grommets warm up and are flexible enough to come off. Cold, brittle plastic and stiff grommets will lead to a broken airbox/cover even if you otherwise do everything correctly.
7. Pull up on the rear driver's corner (near the battery box) first, then the rear corner where the MAF sensor is, then the fronts.

Under the hood should be a Jump start /charging post that is connected to the battery. Look on the pass side for rubber caps that cover a brass post. Hook up your charger here, Red is positive, Black is the ground side or just hook the ground to any solid metal part of the engine.

How do i unhook the battery in my 2000 saturn?

Before you attempt to disconnect the battery make sure you have eye protection on. To disconnect the battery there should be a rubber cover over the positive (red) connector on the battery. LEAVE IT THERE FOR NOW. Using a 5/16" wrench (or a 8mm wrench) disconnect the negative (- or black) cable from the battery then pull back the rubber boot on the positive (+ or red) cable and remove the bolt holding on that cable. When reconnecting the battery connect the positive cable first then the negative cable.

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.

I'm not sure what you are trying to say...
If you are saying that you have a Black Cable connected to your Positive side of your battery, then you need to check the following:
As you probably know, there should be a cable (probably black in color) with some sort of Red marking on it or a Red Rubber boot that goes to the Positive terminal on the battery (the battery should also have a + sign or a red indicator on the battery). The other Black Cable should go to the Negative side of the battery and run straight to the firewall or some metal grounding spot in the car.
Any other way will not be a good thing for the car or the ECU.

How do you change the Battery in a 1992 JImmy

It appears that the battery is shot! Right? The bolt is there, but the plastic has melted over it. You will need a new end anyway, so cut the cable off close to the terminal. Out with the old battery! Frankster016

Connecting Jumper Cables to Battery Terminals

the positive terminal is covered by a red plastic cap that must be pulled off then attach the red or positive jumper cable there then attach the ground or black cable to either a bolt on the brace that is in your way or the alternator bracket or another bracket that is attached to the engine block or frame directly without any rubber mounting bushings and preferably not painted.

I have power but it won't start. makes a clicking sound when istart it

Hello All,

This is a common indicator of a dead battery. You may see some lights and the radio may play, but there is not enough power to turn the engine over. What you must do is one of two things:

1. Get a jump start from a freind.
-This is done by putting the vechicles' front bumpers right in front of each other (Close but not touching).
- Open both hoods.
- Pull out your handy jumper cables (or borrow a friends).
- Connect one end of the red jumper to the red post (positive) on the dead battery.
- The post is the bit of metal sticking out the side or top usually surrounded by either black or red.
- Once you have connected to the Positive post, connect the other side of the red cable to the good battery's positive post.
- Connect the black or negative cable to the negative/black post on the good battery.
- At this point, look at the dead car's frame around the engine. Look near the battery for a piece of metal on the frame. Clamp your jumper cable to the metal. Be aware the cable may spark. This is normal.
- Count to three then try to start the dead vehicle.
- Remove the jumper cable opposite how you put it on (ie. negative off dead vehicle first, then negative off good vehicle, etc.)

If this does not work after a few tries, you may have to remove your battery and bring it in. Have a qualified mechanic do this if you are not sure how to do this.

Hope this helps.
