Old club car battery wireing digram

How old? The two most common wiring of the batteries are: (old) two batt on driver side , front one neg toward middle of cart, back one positive toward middle. Middle batteries-- both positive towards front of cart. Passenger side-- two batteries- front one - positive toward middle, back one negative toward middle of cart. Connect main negative to drivers side and main positive to passenger side- rest of them are connected in series( neg to pos to neg). The newer wiring only has two batteries that are switched- The main positive and the main negative batteries are reversed but the main cables are connected differently, you can tell by looking at what posts are not connected after wiring them in series. They will be the back ones on each side.

Where does this fusible link connect on an 08 f150 ? A coworker took off the old alternator and we don't know where it connected to.

Hi Heath, If the cable is attached to the positive side of the battery, it will attach to the B+ on the alternator. If it is the negative it will be an earth connection. Regards John

I took out old battery on my 2004 honda vtx c,now i am having problem knowing witch side is positive and wich is negative on cables

Okay...the battery posts themselves should be identified with a + and -

As for the cables....often the positive cable is red, and has a rubber cap on the cable that covers the positve cable/battery post connection once bolted up. The negative cable does not have this cap. You should note that the positive cable runs from the battery to the main fuse of the bike, which usually is near the battery.

Took old dead battery out don't know which terinal is negative and which is positive

the terminals on the battery will have a + (positive) or a - (negative) moulded in the plastic case within 1/2 inch of the terminal.

if it is the cables you are not sure about, the negative cable will go straight to the body of the car.

I need the battery wiring diagram for HomeLite UT13122. I took out the old batteries without documenting the wiring thinking it was in the manual.

Short blue cable goes between the negative and positive terminals on one side of the battery.

Thick white from cable that goes to the switch and thick wire that comes from negative terminal of motor go together with the small black wire from the hood - connect all 3 wires to the negative terminal on other side.

Thick green wire from cable that goes to the switch goes with the thin red wire from the hood - connect both wires to the remaining (unused) positive terminal.

Clear monter cable, needs to know witch is postive and negative.

Hi gaitan1

There are a few ways that cable can have positive and negative identified. In the case of monster cable, the first thing to look for is

  1. a single silver strand of wire in one bunch of many copper strands. OR
  2. writing along one side of the cable
  3. a fine ridge along one side
  4. a small white stripe every so often on one side
It is not important which one you make positive, but VERY important to get the speakers in phase. If none of these suggestions help you, I am happy to still assist you. :)
