Convert battery cables from top post to side mount replacement ends?

If all you are doing is changing to a side post battery, just connect all the positive cables from the old pos post to the new pos holder and all the neg ones to the new neg holder. If you've already cut them all off and not sure where each wire goes, all the reds are positive, all the blacks are neg. To make sure use your continuity meter to test. Connect one meter lead to any good clean metal part on the car and test between each black wire in turn, the neg ones will show a circuit, the pos ones will not.

A quick look under hood should answer this. If no battery, check cable ends for which type.

Turn ignition key everything goes dead

Ive had this one before on my avalanche, What it ended up being was a loose / dirty battery terminal. The side post batterys are know for this, you can convert it over to a top post. It will fit tight, but it will fit. Benifits, from this is more starting power and etc. If its not your battery terminals, check the chassis ground coming off the motor to the frame. If its not that, check the positive connection on the starter, then if your starter is "hot" I suspect the starter has failed. hope this helps

92 lebaron convertable. When it rains, the top

If you out the top down, on the windshield side posts you will see a small drain tube on each side. When these cars age the sealant used around the drain tubes rends to get crushed and distorted and tends to cover these tubes not allowing the water to drain down the A posts. This causes the water to back up and run down the inside of the A post and under the dash and onto the floor. It's also possible that the window seals are in need of replacement or adjustment.
