The battery posts are identified with a + sign for positive and a - sign for positive.

Unless someone has changed the wiring, the positive wire should be red and run down to the starter and solenoid.

The ground (negative) should be black and run to a bolt on the frame.

Trying to charge battery for first time. It says connect two red connectors. Do you charge it first then connect the connector afterwards?


1. I assume this is a car battery so the first thing you do is to disconnect the vehicle cables from the battery terminals. The negative first and then the positive. The positive terminal is marked with a plus sign ...+ ... When refitting the cables to the
battery after it is charged you fit the positive cable to the positive battery terminal(+) first and fit the negative(-) last.

2. Now that the battery is unconnected from the vehicle you can fit the charging cables to the battery terminals. The charger you have should have 2 cables leading from it , a positive with a red plastic insulation on the clip and a negative cable probably with black insulation on the clip.The instructions with the charger will tell you in which order the cables are to be attached to the battery and the order you remove them. Each of the 2 cables has to be clipped onto the correct battery terminal. The positive cable(+) from the charger goes to the positive battery terminal (+)and the negative cable(-) from the charger goes to the negative battery terminal(-).

3. Once the cables from the charger are properly connected to the battery, you can plug in the charger and turn on the power.

4. Batteries generate explosive gasses when being charged and it only takes one small spark to ignite them. Don't reconnect the battery after charging for a half hour or so and make sure the area where you are charging is well ventilated.

Which is the positive terminal?


There may be a dot of paint identifying the positive terminal. An old trick is to connect the negative pole of a flashlight battery to one terminal and briefly touch the top pole of the battery to the other terminal. If the cone moves outward, you have found the positive speaker terminal.

Connecting battaries for a Rascal Autogo


When you put the second battery in the case paying attention to polarity position, the longer wire will go to the top connector. If you have a voltmeter you can identify which wire has 12 volts on it. It should be the brown wire but verify anyway. This wire has to be connected to the NEGATIVE terminal of the second battery in order to get 24 volts to the scooter. The remaining wire connects to the positive terminal of the battery.

The battery should be on the right hand side of the car, in the engine compartment, remember when you jump start it to hook up the jumper cables like this; negative jumper cable to negative battery terminal on your car, then positive jumper cable to positive terminal on your car, then, put the other positive jumper cable to the car that's jumper car and last connect the other negative jumper cable to the jumer cars engine block, and that should help you.

How to switch out the battery


Remove Negative terminal first, then positive terminal. Battery will have some type of tie down or block at base with a bolt you will have to remove. Remember how it goes back together. Remove battery.
Install new battery and tie down or block. Install Positive terminal then Negative terminal.
Remember to never touch both Positive and negative terminals with a metal object (ie..ratchet, wrench etc) this can cause injury and/or permanent damage to a new battery.

How to remove battery in 1992 Toyota Corona so it can be recharged


(1) Loosen screw on negative ( - ) terminal clamp, lift negative cable off terminal, and put cable end somewhere where it can't touch the battery. This stops the positive terminal from being "live" with respect to the rest of the car.

(2) Lift plastic cover from positive ( + ) terminal. Loosen screw on positive terminal clamp, while making sure your screwdriver is nowhere near the negative terminal at all times. Lift positive cable off terminal, and put cable end somewhere where it can't touch the battery.

(3) Loosen the butterfly nuts over the clamp that holds the battery to the tray. One butterfly nut will have to come off completely, the other can stay on so you don't lose the clamp down the middle of the engine. Swing the clamp off to one side.

(4) Lift the battery out of the tray, keeping it upright at all times.

To reinstall the battery, follow the above steps in reverse order.

Battery Removal


Lilscorpgurl -

You will want to disconnect the negative (black) cable from the battery first. When disconnecting the negative cable, be sure you DO NOT touch the positive (red) terminal with the wrench you're using.

After the negative is safely disconnected and tucked out of the way, go ahead and disconnect the positive cable (red)...taking care not to touch the negative terminal with the wrench.

When you reconnect the battery, reverse the order: positive first, negative last.
