    Hi, Tanya I would really love to help you with your bike question but due to the magnitude of yesterday's solar flare the batteries in my crystal ball are dead and my mental telepathy headset circuitry was melted. I need the year, make, and model of your motorcycle please click on the word "COMMENT" below and provide this information in the box that will open and then click on the green comment box in the bottom right-hand corner after it posts I will receive an "ALERT" icon that will allow me to respond to your information. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Nearly all batteries have two polarities one negative and one positive. You need to be very careful not to get these switched or you could fry all of it.
About 90% of them are also color coded for safety, red for positive, black for negative. Also the terminals have a "sign" this - for negative and this + for positive.
Always connect the positive first and the negative or "ground" cable last to reduce sparking chances. Sparks can ignite the gases created by a battery.
Be sure everything is turned off before you do any of this.
Finally check online for a PDF file manual for your model and simply follow the steps.

When I tried to change battery alarm and all lights went on. How to install new battery in Nissan xtera 2006?


Disconnect the negative cable first and then the positive cable and remove the battery. The lights/alarm will go out when battery is disconnected and may come back on when reconnected. Use door lock key fob to shut alarm/lights off if they come back on when battery is reconnected

Just changed the battery in 04 R1150 gsa. Now it runs very rough. What did I do wrong?


To change the battery, you have to remove the fuel tank. In doing so, you are disturbing the throttle cable on the RHS and pulling it out of its housing.

This is what it should look like.

My computer will not turn on at all after changing out my fan. I made sure everything was connected and when I rey to turn it on, I get nothing.


Okay, let's review, and let me ask some questions.

A) Did you follow Anti-Static Precautions? Used an ESD wrist strap, and connected the alligator clip to a good ground source?

B) Did you reconnect the Power Button Board?

C) Fan/Heatsink Assembly;
1) Did you reconnect the fan cable to the motherboard?

2) Did you scrape the top of the Processor clean, and the bottom of the heatsink plate on the cooling tube, and apply fresh, new thermal paste properly?

3) Did you tighten the heatsink plate screws in a criss-cross fashion, and did not over-tighten?

D) Did youi reconnect the RTC battery cable back to the motherboard? (RTC = Real Time Clock.
RTC Battery, another name for CMOS battery) You did disconnect the RTC battery, correct?

E) Reconnected the Power Connector Cable?

We'll start from here.

I WANT TO KNOW WHERE IS THE STARTER LOCATED SO I CAN REPLACE IT..


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 2.0L SOHC Engine With Automatic Transaxle; 2.4L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with a insulator grommet which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Remove the air cleaner resonator.
  3. Remove the 3 bolts attaching the Transmission Control Module (TCM). Do not disconnect the TCM wiring. Move the TCM to gain access to the upper starter mounting bolt.
  4. Remove the upper starter mounting bolt.
  5. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  6. Remove the positive battery cable nut and disconnect the cable from the starter.
  7. Disconnect the push-on solenoid connector.
  8. Remove the lower mounting bolt that attaches the starter to the transaxle.
  9. Remove the starter from the vehicle. Fig. 3: Starter motor wiring terminal connections — 2.0L SOHC engine with A/T; 2.4L engine 90902g12.gif
    To install:
  10. Install the starter onto the transaxle and the lower mounting bolt.
  11. Tighten the mounting bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm). NOTE: Before reconnecting the wiring to the starter solenoid, be sure to clean the wiring of any dirt or corrosion.
  12. Reconnect the positive battery cable to the solenoid post and tighten the retaining nut to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  13. Reconnect the push-on solenoid connector.
  14. Lower the vehicle.
  15. Reinstall the upper attaching bolt and torque to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  16. Reinstall the TCM to its original location and install the mounting screws.
  17. Reinstall the air cleaner resonator.
  18. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
2.5L (VIN N) Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Most vehicles will require the removal of the front exhaust pipe. Use penetrating oil on the fasteners to ease removal.
  3. Disconnect the starter motor electrical connections.
  4. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts and remove the starter. Fig. 4: Exploded view of the starter motor mounting — 2.5L engine 90902g10.gif
    To install:
  5. Clean both surfaces of the starter motor flange and the rear plate. This is important since the starter grounds through its case and the transaxle flange to which it attached. Some remanufactured starters may have paint on these areas which should be cleaned off before installation. Install the starter motor onto the transaxle and secure with the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 20–25 ft. lbs. (26–33 Nm).
  6. Connect the electrical harness connectors to the starter.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable and check the starter for proper operation.
2.5L (VIN H) Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Loosen, but do not remove, the exhaust pipe-to-manifold retaining nuts.
  4. Place a drain pan under the oil filter to prevent oil spillage, then remove the oil filter. For additional details, refer to Section 1. Fig. 5: Loosen the exhaust pipe-to-manifold retaining nuts to provide removal clearance for the starter 90902p01.jpg
    Fig. 6: Location of the positive battery cable nut (1) and the push-on solenoid connector (2) 90902p02.jpg
    Fig. 7: After removing the oil filter for access, unfasten the retaining nut and disconnect the positive battery cable 90902p03.jpg
    Fig. 8: Disengage the push-on starter solenoid connector 90902p04.jpg

  5. Remove the positive battery cable retaining nut and battery cable from the starter.
  6. Disconnect the push-on solenoid connector.
  7. Remove the 3 bolts that attach the starter unit to the transaxle.
  8. Pull the exhaust pipe down just enough to provide clearance for the starter motor. The exhaust pipe does not have to be separated from the pipe-to-manifold threaded studs.
  9. Remove the starter unit from the vehicle. Fig. 9: Remove the 3 starter motor-to-transaxle housing attaching bolts 90902p05.jpg
    Fig. 10: Pull the exhaust pipe down just enough to provide removal clearance for the starter 90902p06.jpg
    Fig. 11: Carefully remove the starter motor from the vehicle 90902p07.jpg
    To install:
