The car started and run before? if so, bypass the wire with a wire connection kit from autozone or advance auto,it may be a metal fuse link for an added stereo,or another application. it may even be a fuseable link. if so take it off, then go to parts place and do not be afraid to ask questions!you may have to buy an application to car to make it run what!i would sleep better knowing i did not give you wrong advice.disconnect the application, take it to autozone, advance auto,nappa. and find out what the application is. you cannot go wrong by doing that, don't be afraid to ask questions! if i could see it, i would be able to tell you what to do and how. but i can't thank you for choosing

Trying to charge battery for first time. It says connect two red connectors. Do you charge it first then connect the connector afterwards?

1. I assume this is a car battery so the first thing you do is to disconnect the vehicle cables from the battery terminals. The negative first and then the positive. The positive terminal is marked with a plus sign ...+ ... When refitting the cables to the
battery after it is charged you fit the positive cable to the positive battery terminal(+) first and fit the negative(-) last.

2. Now that the battery is unconnected from the vehicle you can fit the charging cables to the battery terminals. The charger you have should have 2 cables leading from it , a positive with a red plastic insulation on the clip and a negative cable probably with black insulation on the clip.The instructions with the charger will tell you in which order the cables are to be attached to the battery and the order you remove them. Each of the 2 cables has to be clipped onto the correct battery terminal. The positive cable(+) from the charger goes to the positive battery terminal (+)and the negative cable(-) from the charger goes to the negative battery terminal(-).

3. Once the cables from the charger are properly connected to the battery, you can plug in the charger and turn on the power.

4. Batteries generate explosive gasses when being charged and it only takes one small spark to ignite them. Don't reconnect the battery after charging for a half hour or so and make sure the area where you are charging is well ventilated.

Wiring diagram 06 impala

Read the alarm installation manual carefully and keep the support number handy if you have any questions as every alarm manufacturer uses different connection and mounting techniques. Open the hood and disconnect the positive battery cable. Connect the alarm power wire to the positive battery cable and run it to the driver side of the firewall.
Locate an open area in the engine bay and mount the siren, facing the engine to limit water exposure while driving. Run the siren wires to the driver side's of the firewall and feed all of the wires through the firewall and into the dash area of the Impala. Drill a small hole in the firewall if necessary, directly in front of the steering wheel.
Remove the lower dash panel if necessary and mount the shock sensor per the manufacturer's instructions. Locate the power lock relay if the car is so equipped and connect the alarm's power lock module.
Find the starter wire in the ignition harness and attach the start disable relay. Drill a small hole in the dash for the LED light and snap it into place.
Connect all of the wires to the alarm control module by plugging them into the module and secure it as far into the dash as possible with zip ties.
Reconnect the positive battery and test the alarm on the Impala. Adjust the sensitivity level as desired and secure any loose wires with zip ties.

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!

The brake pipes on my voyager rattle together is there a clip or something missing

they do have little plastic clips that prevent this from happening, the easiest thing to do , get a package of small zip ties, locate where the rattle is happening, and zip tie the offending parts down to something in the area that will stop this from happening,, or, you could go to the dealer, and pay a ton of money for them to basically do the same fix with the correct clips,

Have a delcotron alternator ,what to know where no.1 terminal and no.2terminal wire goes it is on my 1946 cj2a jeep my amp hand does not show a charge had alternator checked out and is ok

  • Use a wrench to remove the negative and positive battery cables: They are clearly labeled "+" and "-." Always remove the negative cable first, as this isolates the power to the metal parts of your car. Tuck the cables away from the battery as you don't want them to accidentally touch a battery terminal when you're wiring your alternator.

  • 3

    Locate the alternator terminals. There are two: one marked "live," "pos" or "+" and the other marked "neg," "field" or "-."

  • 4

    Locate the two cables. The positive (red) cable goes to your battery via a wire loom or harness. The negative (black) cable attaches to a metal part of your car.

  • 5

    Check how the cables attach to the alternator terminals. Some connect using eyelets that hook over the terminal and tighten with a bolt; others connect by inserting the wire under the terminal and tightening a bolt.

  • 6

    Loosen the two bolts using a suitable-sized wrench or, if the cables connect using eyelets, remove the bolts.

  • 7

    Insert the exposed end of the negative (black) cable under the loosened bolt on the negative terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 8

    Insert the exposed end of the positive (red) cable under the loosened bolt on the positive terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 9

    Replace the positive battery cable on the positive battery terminal using a wrench. Replace the negative battery cable on the negative battery terminal.

    The shifter cable came loose

    The end of the cable on the GM is a molded plastic piece. Part of the cable. If the plastic tab has broken off you really only have two choices.
    1. Replace the entire cable, a tough job.
    2. push the plastic end back on the arm of the trans shifter and use two zip ties in a cross patter to tighten it down. I have seen this work if done right for years.
    Hope this helps.
