2006 Honda Nighthawk 250 hooked up my battery charger backward


Hi, Roger if your battery out of your bike when it is completely dead and you hook up the battery charger backward your battery will charge fully except the poles will be backward, the Positive pole is now the Negative pole and the Negative pole is now the Positive pole. If you install the battery not knowing the poles have been reversed you will blow the main circuit fuse or circuit breaker on the bike.
If you tried charging the battery while it was still hooked up to the bike it will do the same thing to the fuse or circuit breaker in the battery charger. Most battery chargers have some type of warning light or buzzer alerting you to the fact that the cables are hooked up backward.
If your battery is fully charged backward take it out of the bike hook it to a headlight and let it drain until the voltage reads zero, this may take a couple of days, then recharge it slowly with a trickle charger or a regular battery charger at 1 or 2 amps for 24 hours and you will be good to go.

Does the battery have to go in a charger for charging


lila, yes you have to put the battery on the charger to charge the battery, if not the charger wont charge anything, after you put the battery on the charger hold, before that don't forget to equalize the pin charge with the battery there was a marking or emboss note negative pole and positive pole for the battery fit on it charge, then you can go for the electric plug. For additional note there is light indicator green for full battery, orange for the half battery energy and the last one is red light blink for the on going charge the battery. i hope it help, remember safety first.

How to change a bettery on a 2002 ford focus


Look at your old battery and make note of the brackets installation and the terminal (positive and negative ) locations. Remove the positive cable, then the negative cable where they attach to the battery poles. POSITIVE cables are normally RED.....NEGATIVE cables are normally BLACK. Remove the battery hold down bracket making sure you do not place anything metal across the two battery poles. Install the new battery into the battery tray, attach the hold down brackets, the attach the negative cable end then the positive end. BE VERY CAREFUL and DO NOT GET BATTERY ACID on you or SHORT ACROSS the battery poles with any metalic object. If you have not done this before and are buying a new battery from an auto center....they will...most times.....install the battery for you free of charge

I have a 1996 hyundai accent it ran fine took battery off and put it back on now no spark and wont start


Check the ground wire, a black connected to the ( - ) pole, it might have been disconnected. Clean the battery clamp and battery terminals from rust and oxidation, tighten up the TERMINAL. Remember ( + )positive pole is RED and negative ( - ) pole is black, sometimes no plastic cover!
Taaah!

Won't start


It is usually marked on the casing. +(or a red marker around the pole) is positive. If you havent removed the battery connect a bulb between one of the poles a piece of bare metal (ie engine). If the bulb lights up you're on the positive. If you have already removed the battery use a multimeter and measure voltage across the poles on the battery, if the meter gives a positive reading the red test lead is on the positve. If it gives a negative reading ie -12.35V(digital meter) the red is on negative. If you have an analogue meter(a meter using a needle) it will swing to the left when red lead is on neg.

Where to connect jumping cables on the battery


Dead car --- Red to + ... Black to -

Hot car --- Red to + ... Black to any metal car part away from the battery. Let the hot car charge the battery for a couple minutes before you try it. Try it. IMPORTANT: DISCONNECT THE HOT CAR BLACK JUMPER FIRST, then take the black off the dead car. Then disconnect the dead car red and then the other end on the hot car.

Need to charge battery on my chevy venture. Please show me how


Okay... One can not see the negative battery terminal so.... Connect the negative clip from your charger to the chassis and then remove the RED plastic cover in front of the black relay box above the battery OR the plastic cover from the positive battery terminal and connect the positive cable. Make sure you have good connections by watching the meter on your charger. Then plug in the charger and turn it on. Charge time depends on the strength of your charger. I'm going to go hook mine up again because I need to go out for a bit. I don't think I'm going to like changing this battery..... Just thought I'd share..... Good luck.
