Battery cables hooked up backwards on ariens model 927041

Cables hooked up backwards for about 10 sec., some smoke came out from under the housing. Re hooked up the battery cables the proper way and no power at the key. NO obvious signs of any wires burnt. This is on a Ariens ride on mower, model 927041. It has a 12.5 I/C Briggs&Stratton, model 289707 type 0115.01, code 93030144.
Thanks, Andy

You may have blown a fuse. Follow the wires from the ignition to the battery and look for the fuse housing also from the starter to the battery. There may be more than one fuse so look good. If all your fuses are ok then it's possible you may have fouled the battery in which case it's time for a new one.
I'm a little worried that the smoke you saw was coming from the starter moter in which case you may need to replace but there should be fuse to protect it so let's not worry about that yet.

Hope you get it running but if not post back and we will figure it out

When I put batteries in and turned it on, it started smoking and a wire heated up very quickly. Is there anyway this one candle can be replaced because it is a manufacturing flaw?

John deere lawn tractor. Had a dead battery. my son tried to jump it but cables got hooked up backwards, cranked 10 sec. Now turns over but wont start and smokes under the flywheel


Because he shorted out the alternator under the flywheel. There also maybe other damage as these are not protected from reversed voltage.

Saturn jumper cables hooked up backwards


Try charging the battery more. Even though your lights may come one, starting a vehicle requires massive amounts of amperage from the batter. It's possible that your jumper cables aren't a thick enough guage to supply enough power as well. Sometimes the vehicle you're jumping from might not have enough power to support your vehicle's starting power requirements.

I'm trying to install a new battery in my 1984 Nissan Sentra. When I hook up the terminals, the wiring starts to smoke leading me to believe that the hook up is backwards. What is the correct hook up for...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly (Electrician since late 1960's)

Ground goes to the - pole. Hooking it up backwards can damage your alternator, wiring harnesses and fuse links. (Fuse link damage is a nightmare to sort out!) What you do by hooking up a battery backwards is turn your vehicle wiring harness into a giant heating element. (<-Very bad!) If you just changed the battery and then you hooked up the cables with the smoking cable result you certainly did connect the cables backwards. The ground cable... will connect to chassis and in most cases the engine body / transmission somewhere.
The positive cable will eventually connect to the starter. Follow the ground lead from the battery to the chassis or engine body connection. (metal to metal contact) Once your sure that is the ground cable; connect it to the - post of the battery AFTER connecting the positive post terminal.
If you have a newer audio system you will have lost your radio codes. We can not provide the codes for anti-theft reasons. Activation Codes must be from the car dealer or audio system retailer.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I bosst my baterry due to dead pawer,sudenly it


Did you determine the cause of your battery going dead in the first place? Did you hook the cables to your battery correctly? What is happening in your car now?

Several things might have happened. I can only speculate from the limited information you gave. You could have had a short under the dash which caused the battery to discharge in the first place. You could have hooked the booster cables up backwards. If you will post additional comments, I will try to help you further. Out of curiousity, have you recently installed a new stereo system or amplifier?

if it's the box near the battery that would be a fuse panel. under it will be a main fuse that if you are lucky is blown. replace it and it should work fine.
