Assuming the ignition is off while you are installing the battery.
The starter relay must be stuck, or the cable is connected to the wrong side of the relay

Diagnosis for battery terminal wrongly fitted


Do you know what make, model, year of vehicle it is? Was it a new/fully charged battery? If so then probably blew a few main fuses, ECU, alternator and other electricals.

Installed new battery on 2006 Galant and it still wont crank the engine. Put Jumpers on and it starts. Whats the problem?


If you're jumping with the jumper neg lead on engine block (like you should) then you have a bad ground lead.
If you are jumpering to the battery terminals then the connection to the battery itself is bad. Clean the battery connector terminals.

New battery fitted started 4 days in a row left for two days then started then today battery is flat again started with leads went one mile up the road stopped bike and it would not start again battry...


It may need a regulator.
put a multi meter across the battery terminals
It should read 12v or a little more with the engine stopped.
When the engine is revved it should rise to around 14v, if it doesnt rise, it isnt charging

I just need to know how to change the battery.


The attached link will provide you with the owners manual for a 2001 Pontiac Aztek. Your battery is located on the passenger side of car car, right up front. There should be one or two screws that secure the battery to the tray (called a battery tray). Unscrew these screws and then remove the positive and negative battery cables. Pull the battery up and then out of your engine compartment.

Replacment Battery Information: Your owners manual recommends a maintenance free AC Delco battery. When it's time for a new battery, get one that has the replacement number shown on the original battery's label.

How do you change a positve battery cable on a 1998 dodge avenger car?


First a little more clarification would be helpful in, Why do you think the cable needs replaced? If the cable is corroded at terminal connection a new connection fitting is much more simpler than cable replacement. Nonetheless, remove the negative battery cable first, then the positive. (1)Clean the corroded area's with baking soda and water mixture (you should wear eye and hand protection- battery acid will eat through clothing in a matter of minutes).Scrub gently with nylon brush -using a wire brush can cause sparks and may cause a fire from hydrogen gas escaping form battery. Flush with clean water and your ready to start the next process. (2)Assuming you will adding a new terminal connection fitting - cut off bad fitting with wire cutters or hack saw, skin back wire about ONE inch and install new cable fitting.(3) install / reconnect battery. (4) Your cars computer will be cleared of all learned shifting patterns and other feedback information. It will revert back to factory preprogrammed settings. Average cost of replacement cable clamp $3.50. New cable cost to starter +$30.00

Happy motoring.

Its not starting as good as it used to


Try running Chevron Techron concentrated fuel injector cleaner in a 1/4 tank of gas.

Also, may be the issue in this TSB.

LIGHT TRUCK: 1990-91 RANGER
1991 EXPLORER
ISSUE: A hard start or no start condition may occur when the engine is cold. The engine may not start without cycling the key to the OFF position and back to START. Ignition switch bounce (loss of electrical continuity between contacts) may cause the EDIS module to recycle several times or to lock-up and not allow a start at all.
ACTION: Install a new ignition switch containing synthetic lubricant which reduces the amount of bounce. Also, install a new wiring connector containing a new material that is compatible with the new synthetic lubricant. Refer to the following procedure for service details.
REMOVAL
  1. Disconnect the battery power.
  2. Remove the trim panel. Refer to the 1990-91 Ranger/Explorer Shop Manual, Section 11-04B, for removal procedure.
  3. Turn the lock cylinder to the RUN position.
  4. Remove the two (2) nuts on the ignition switch.
  5. Separate the connector from ignition switch by gently prying on the ears of the connector and pulling apart firmly.
  6. Disengage the terminals from the existing connector. Discard the connector.
  7. Insert terminal into proper locations in new connector (F2TZ-14489-A), Figure 1. INSTALLATION
    1. Remove the spring clip from the new switch (F2TZ-11572-A). This clip keeps the switch in the correct position during shipment.
    2. Press the new connector (F2TZ-14489-A) onto the terminals of the ignition switch. Be sure the tabs lock securely.
    3. Locate the switch on the weld studs on the steering column. NOTE: THE END OF THE ACTUATOR ROD MUST FIT IN THE HOLE ON THE SLIDER.
    4. Install the nuts on the weld stud. Tighten to 4.45-7.24N-m (39-64 lb-in).
    5. Connect the battery terminal.
    6. Check the switch operation. If necessary, adjust it. Refer to the 1990-91 Aerostar, Explorer, Ranger Truck Shop Manual, Section 11-04B, for adjustment procedure.
    7. Install the trim panel.

Battery not holding charge.


The new battery might be faulty. I have had a few new batteries that seemed good. After they were installed, the car would start right up. If the car sat overnight, the battery would drain down to about 10.5V and wouldn't start.
Try disconnecting the (-) terminal on the battery and let the car sit overnight. Then reconnect the
(-) and try to start the car (or if you have a voltmeter check the voltage across the battery terminals) . If the car is hard to start or doesn't start the battery is defective.

here is the wiring diagram for the charging system. let me know if you need any of the other wiring diagrams.
