No voltage from battery to fuse box

The battery was hooked up incorrectly and sparked. Smoked the voltage regulator. Replaced the voltage regulator. Have 12.89VDC at battery, but no voltage at fuse box. Lights, horn, or nothing else works. Is there an in line fuse? If so, where would it be located. If not, Help!!

Thanks

Hooked up my new battery backwards, blew the main fuse. It has been replaced and now the meter fuse in the inside fuse box blows within seconds and gage cluster and alternator not working


Could have damaged regulator. When the car is running have you checked the voltage at battery terminals. If battery is charging it should be around 14 volts. If around 12 your charging system is fubar.

Meanwhile if you have to charge the car every day then something in the car is draining the battery, Using an ammeter you need to track it down, Hook it up to battery and pull fuse out one at a time till the drain goes down. That isolates the circuit with the problem.

Hooked battery up wrong on 1992 explorer, stereo smoked and now the windshield wipers won't shut off. No blown fuses just popped the line circuit from starter relay to alternator. Replaced battery...


you must RUN the scanner/computer for easy diagnostic, and fix it.
Remember the electronic vehicle is very complicated, You can have some faulty: PCM+ignition coil+BCM+sensor+etc.
see the diagram attached.

You already took #1 off the list.
The national auto parts chains (AutoZone, Pep Boys, and Advance Auto Parts) will hook up a
diagnostic tool to your car to perform a Charging System diagnosis for free - its an easy
way to exonerate & differentially diagnose your Alternator/Battery/Voltage Regulator.

Put the battery on wrong,now it won't crank. do not hear the fuel pump coming on. please help


If you hooked the battery up backwards, you probably smoked a lot of stuff. Maybe you should consider taking your Blazer to a professional for an evaluation before you start trying to fix stuff.

Replacing battery, it got hooked up backwards. Pos. cable kept sparking upon, trying to hook up. Now no power to anything at all except dash security light still blinks. Where do I start looking for...


nissan was always junk in my mind but lets see if we can figure it out repalce the red cable case its smoked and will give you problems latter on down the road second pop your fuse boxes and start pulling and testing the fuses to find burnded one's replace any you find bad if that does nothing you'll need to roll your sleeves up get a lil dirty make sure you look over the black cable/neg to make sure its not smoked either if that dont happen you'll probly wnat to take it to the shop of your choice and have them test it to see how bad the smoke out was chances are it not that bad good luck smokey.

Hooked cables up BACKWARDS while jumping my truck...where do I start troubleshooting what I f@$*cked-up??


follow the big wire to the fuse box. You should have a larger fuse that popped. Check for power at the fuse box. If none then thats where the problem is

1979 Ford Thunderbird alternator not charging


Are the connections really dirty at the voltage regulator? These tend to get corrosion on them and cause weird charging system issues. Also make sure the ground is good on the regulator.
