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.

Convert battery cables from top post to side mount replacement ends?


If all you are doing is changing to a side post battery, just connect all the positive cables from the old pos post to the new pos holder and all the neg ones to the new neg holder. If you've already cut them all off and not sure where each wire goes, all the reds are positive, all the blacks are neg. To make sure use your continuity meter to test. Connect one meter lead to any good clean metal part on the car and test between each black wire in turn, the neg ones will show a circuit, the pos ones will not.

How do i change the positive battery cable and how do i get them?! oh one thing where do i connect the end of the negative battery cable to?!because i have it connected to engine and i read that it spouse...


Would like to know what size of motor and what kind of car but the answer would still be the same.

First, you can get the battery cables from any parts store.

Second, the black/ground wire goes from the battery post (the - negative side) and the other end screws/bolts to the frame of your car or the grounding point like on a Dodge Stratus.

Third, the red/positive wire connects to the battery post (the + positive side) and the other end goes down to your STARTER not the alternator.

The alternator has a wire that attaches to it that is separate that receives power.

Hope this helps!

Bought a 2002 ford escort zx2. Think they crossed the battery wires,need a picture of correct wire connections to battery


The battery has a positive (+) post and a negative (-) post. The negative post would have a cable, usually black, going to a ground, either on the engine or bolted to the frame near the battery. The positive post will have a usually red cable, and the cable will run from the positive post to the starter on the engine. If the wires, or cables, are wrong, it can be big trouble-fuses can blow, fusible links can melt, electronic components can be damaged, alternators can be snuffed out, ...big trouble!

OK, There should not be a "Tan" wire there. It is probably the "Red" or "Orange" wire that has faded real bad and just looks tan. It goes on the same post as the large black battery cable. It should be a 10 gauge wire. The other end of that wire goes to the "BAT" terminal on the alternator. (in case you want to check and make sure) The smaller black wires should be ground wires, They will attach to the transmission housing. Usually, there is a special bolt with a stud made on the end of it and a nut that secures the wires. As you said, the purple wire goes to the small post on the starter solenoid.

I bought some halo driving lights for my '03 GMC Sierra 1500, they came with a wiring harness, switch and everything needed for installation except for installation instructions. Help PLEASE!


Tools recommended for this job: wire stripper, wire crimper, volt meter, 4x quick wire connectors, 4x male crimp connectors, 4x female crimp connectors
  1. First, tape the halo and/or LED wires to the back of the headlights to keep them from tangling.
  2. Keep the pairs in order by their color, e.g. black, black (ground) and Red, Red (positive). Note: positive and ground wires might not always be black and red.
  3. Remove some of the plastic shielding at the end of the wires to expose enough copper wire, next twist the copper together to strengthen it.
  4. Shove the twisted copper into a crimp connector; crimp the location where wire and the connector end overlaps, wrap with electrical tape to secure it.
  5. Two extra wires in black and red will be helpful to make the halo/LED wire longer to easier installation. Remove shielding: show copper: use the connectors: connect the positive and ground from the headlights.
  6. Next step, turn the headlights inside the car to the [on] position.
  7. Take the volt meter and connect the negative to the negative on the battery (please use extreme precaution when doing so).
  8. The headlight harness usually will have [3] wires, generally red, black, green (headlights, ground, turn signal). Use the volt meter to test which wire will have power running through it (since the headlight is in the [on] position) which will be the headlight wire.
  9. Use the quick connector to connect the extra wires (red) to the power wire on the harness and black to the ground. This will split the current coming from the harness. Crimp the connectors and use electrical tape to secure it.
  10. Now connect the projector headlight halo wires and the harness from the car.
  11. No wires should be left over unconnected.
  12. The installation is now complete.

Most likely goes on ignition side (small eye). If you connect it to large eye it will have power all the time. Small post (eye) only gets power when key is in start or run position. 2 big eye wires are input from battery positive & alternator feed.

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.
