I jumped my car this am and connected the cables incorrectly. Burning smell in the cabin of the car and small amount of smoke came from the positive attachment on the batter.

No a new battery isn't going to fix anything . You need to take your vehicle to a qualified automotive electrical repair shop an let them assess the damage .

Installed new battery. Now lights are burning out. Was told may need a reset so battery and alternator are on the same page. Is there a code I can use or something?

Changing a battery will have no affect on lights burning out. If the voltage regulator inside the alternator is bad this could cause lights to burn out as it will cause too much voltage to be produced unregulated. If this is so, the check engine light will be on and the charge gauge will be high and you may smell the battery overcharging. Hook up a voltmeter to the battery. It should be around 14.1-14.6 volts. If within this reading, your problem is most likely coincindental

Why do altenatore keep going bad

Your voltage is probably spiking and burning out the alternator. Do your dome lights dim and brighten when you drive at night?

Alternater wont charge battery and fusable link on starter keeps burning

Bad voltage regulator. Usually built-into alternator.
Start car and unplug battery, if it dies your alternator is dead. Get new alternator. If car keeps running, get a voltmeter and check voltage coming through - should be higher than 12v but less than 18v. Any other number means your voltage regulator is dead, cheaper to get a new alternator.

New battery new batterycabel ends started ,now it wont even click no power to anything

Sounds like a fusible link burned out. Check the wires at the battery cable post of the starter. The smaller wires connected here are the fusible links if equipped. If not then check where the smaller positive cable off the battery goes to the fuse box. It will be connected to fuses there which could be burned out.

Replaced negative battery cable with new, what size gage of cable shall i need. cable burned up day after installation. could there a be ground problem. Notice that fuse is located next to battery, is this...

Make sure all battery connections are properly clean. Clean the spot where the ground cable attaches to the body. If its pitted and burn. Find another solid body ground. You can use a 1 gauge ground wire or proper battery ground cable from auto store. After installation, have someone cranks car and you feel wire for excess temperature. There might be a starter problem. Be careful not to burn yourself.
