Engine cables

First take the negative cable off the battery. Then the positive cable. Now the positive cable will attach to the starter with a large eyelet, so take off the nut for the cable, then remove the positive cable, the other wires that attach here simply pick up battery power at that point. Put them all back on with the positive cable in the order they were pulled off. Tighten the nut down. Clamp the positive onto the battery, then the negative.
To make the job the easiest, don't buy a generic positive cable, but buy the one specifically designed for your car. If Nissan is too expensive, buy a generic one that is the same length with the same connectors at each end. Doesn't have to be exactly the same length, but within 3 or 4 inches. The length of a wire or cable is important when considering how much power is to be applied to the starter-a considerably longer cable will just have less power available at its end.

Changing a dead battery?

Loosen the clamps on the battery and remove. Replace with new battery of the same type and place the clamps back on making sure that positive(red) is on the positive connector and negative(black) with the negative connector. Or go to autozone, they will do it for you:)

I was removing the battery from my 2002 buick le sabre and the battery post broke in positive battery connection and I can't seem to get it out. How do I replace the positive battery cable?

go to a parts store and get a battery cable puller. this will drive the old post out of the connector. clean it well before you attach it to the new battery and put some sealer on it, also available at a parts store. if you have messed up the connector,,,,,, you can buy a new terminal at the store and put that one. again coat the thing down with a sealer when you are done.

Car wont start after i had a flat battery au falcon v8 no tick over nothing all fuses seem to be fine there is power to the rest of the car but nothing to start the car also the brake light comes on when...

If your battery is fully charged, then it sounds like one of the connections are loose or corroded, or a bad fusible link at the starter solenoid.

If this is an older ford, mid 70's or older then the solenoid is located out under the hood usually on the passenger side fender area, and the POS. (+) battery cable will lead straight to it.

There are two main (large connectors) on the solenoid, and there is one or two smaller connectors on the solenoid.

All of your hot wires to the vehicle should be connected with the POS. (+) battery cable and connected with a nut (usually a 1/2 inch nut) on one side of the solenoid (large connection), and the cable to the starter should be the only thing connected to the other side of the solenoid (other large connection).

There should also be one or two other small wires with push on connectors, one is from the ignition switch and has power to it when you turn the ignition switch to the start position. This is usually a red or orange wire with a white stripe, and should be connected to the "S" connector on the solenoid. The other wire if it has it (not on all vehicles) will usually be dark green or black with a white stripe and it should be connected to the "I" connector on the solenoid.

1. Connect a test light to a good ground.

2. Pull the wire off of the solenoid "S" connector and place the end of the test light into the end of the wire connector and turn the ignition switch to the start position, the test light should light up when the key is in the start position.

If the test light does light up with the key in the start position then it is the solenoid or the starter that has a problem.

Use a piece of 10 GA. or 12 GA. wire and jumper between the battery cable side of the solenoid, and the "S" connector on the solenoid, if the starter works then there is a poor connection on the battery cable side of the solenoid (clean and tighten the connections there), or a burned up fusible link on the battery cable side of the solenoid, or the ignition switch itself is bad.

If the test light does not light up when the key is in the start position, and all of the connectors are clean and tight, and all of the fusible links are good on the battery cable side of the solenoid, then the ignition switch is the problem.

Use the wire to jumper between the battery cable side of the solenoid straight across to the other side of the solenoid to the cable that goes down to the starter, if the starter works then the solenoid is the problem, if the starter does not work being directly jumped then the starter is the problem.

The battery positive post is fused into my battery cable and I can not remove the rest of it from the cable- What can I do

Take off the negative cable first, then remove the battery with the positive cable attached and replace either positive cable end , or the whole positive cable.

Cable end, or the whole cable can be purchased from Autozone, or from any local car parts dealer.

To replace the battery cable , follow the cable to the point it is attached to the engine on one side, and to the interior electrical distribution center on the ote. There you will find a bolt holding the cable to engine, and a connector to electrical distribution center.
