What happens when you hook a care battery up backwards?


Hello Glen, Bad bad things can happen when you hook up a car battery backwards. If your car has a high quality electrical system it might only blow out one or two main fuses. If not, it can cause havoc on the wiring system and burn out the alternator, computer, sensors, modules, and stereo system to name a few.

May have a blown main fuse or several fuses. The larger main fuse can be located around the battery and even sometimes in the fuse panel. Hooking up the jumpers backward may have also cause electronic damage to things like the ecm, ignition modul etc. If the damage is electronic is may be major so carry it to a shop and let the shop look at it.

Hooked up battery backwards. when i put it in correctly it will turn over but seems to not be getting a spark. All fuses are good that i can see.


You probably cooked a major fuse or relay. I would look them over again. Some are shielded and not easily seen.
Hopefully a fuse took the blow instead of the ignition module or computer.

I'm trying to install a new battery in my 1984 Nissan Sentra. When I hook up the terminals, the wiring starts to smoke leading me to believe that the hook up is backwards. What is the correct hook up for...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly (Electrician since late 1960's)

Ground goes to the - pole. Hooking it up backwards can damage your alternator, wiring harnesses and fuse links. (Fuse link damage is a nightmare to sort out!) What you do by hooking up a battery backwards is turn your vehicle wiring harness into a giant heating element. (<-Very bad!) If you just changed the battery and then you hooked up the cables with the smoking cable result you certainly did connect the cables backwards. The ground cable... will connect to chassis and in most cases the engine body / transmission somewhere.
The positive cable will eventually connect to the starter. Follow the ground lead from the battery to the chassis or engine body connection. (metal to metal contact) Once your sure that is the ground cable; connect it to the - post of the battery AFTER connecting the positive post terminal.
If you have a newer audio system you will have lost your radio codes. We can not provide the codes for anti-theft reasons. Activation Codes must be from the car dealer or audio system retailer.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Fuseable link. ? hooked up battery backwards


fuseable links are pieces of different color wire inserted into the
wiring harness.these are either placed next to the battery or, next to the starter
to prevent a fire if the correct fuses are defeated or, a short occurs in a fusebox.
Since you hooked up your battery backwards your alternator may also be damaged.
