If battery wires grounded out by touching each other would that make car not turnover all lights work where do I check relays an grounds


if the battery wires touched each other with out going through the battery --nothing would happen( just 2 dead wires)
if a positive wire end touched an ground wire while the terminal was connected to the battery, there would have been a flash and sparks but little else
if the two battery posts or terminals were connected with leads connected then there would be a flash and sparks and the possibility of an exploding battery

My 02 saturn sw stalled out going down the road, wont restart. towed back to the house. smelled burnt wires when i lifted the hood. tried to crank, single click noise, oil light and emerg. light on, and...


Hello,

Okay--I am thinking about several things here. Electrical fire; engine failure; coolant system leak. Visual inspection--look at the wires on the engine, do they appear melted or are any of the wire casings soft? Check the fluids for the engine (e.g.-oil coolant) if you have water in your oil or coolant is black you could have blown a head gasket. There are some hoses on the firewall side that go into the block or intake manifold, check them for tears, cracks, etc. After you have diagnosed the problem a little more--re-post.

TO-30 quit running, puff of smoke from electrical? Won't turn over


It is possible to have the solenoid go bad but not while the tractor is running as it is only used to engage the starter. It sounds like the wires to the starter is shorted out. I would run a hot wire to the solenoid from the battery to the solenoid and see if it will start. Just be sure everything is grounded. If the ground cable on the battery is ok you should not have a problem with running a hot wire to the solenoid. Just touch the hot wire to the starter and then release it when the starter engages. Hope this helps.

Yes it is . The remote starter wire has touch together and is wanting to start the starter, they have shorted together, The burning rubber smell is the wire melting due to the electrical short. Take the remote starter out plus the push button and reinstall using new set of wire And if you decide to install a new remote starter youll have to install a fuse in line with the positive wire.

1991 S-10 Chev Blazer Sport: All dash lights went out but fuse is good. The speeddometer would come and go then for months it worked, then today the whole dashlights went black. A short?


A short circuit is when any positive wiring touches any metal or bare wire that is grounded (to Neg Battery terminal). this would normally blow a fuse, and might burn some wires and give a burning pungent smell and maybe a little white smoke A Broken/OPEN circuit is when a wire is disconnected, wire broke or corroded so the wire doesn't make good contact. The instrumental panel is supposed to be grounded to the body/ Neg terminal on battery. a corroded ground wire could cause this. electricity has to complete a full circuit any disruption (fuses in Pos Wiring or any break of circuit in neg side wiring, did you ohm check fuse or a contuinity check, some times a bad fuse looks good to the eye . the dimmer switch could be bad, it's a cheap easy fix. do you or any previous owner live near the ocean, salt water causes a lot of corrosion problems in ground connections and dimmer switches . verify fuse good again as described , because you described a intermittent problem its probably the dimmer because a blown fuse can't repair it'self, but a corroded or wornout DIMMER SWITCH WILL MOST DEFINATELY, INTERMITTENTLY make a good connection causing the lights to work or fail spazmotically, so it is the most likely culprit.

Installed lanzar 266 amp yesterday it went in protect mode on a song and now everytime i turn it on it is in protect mode


most commonly that means that somewhere there was an arc in the electrical either the pos or neg going into the amp or rcas or its the speaker wire from the amp to to the sub itself look especially for little wires touching opposit polarity wire (like a little +wire has moved and touched a - wire)

Disconnect all speaker wires from the amp and disconnect the RCA cables from the amp. If it still goes into protect mode, use a multimeter to confirm that you have 12v on the B+ and remote terminals. Place the black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp when measuring the voltage. If the voltage is sufficient and the amp goes into protect, it will have to be repaired. JL only accepts repairs from authorized dealers. You'll have to find one in your area or you'll have to find a repair shop willing to work on JL amps.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

My amp was smoking and I want to know how to repair it.


The Amplifiers Positive to ground will only hurt the wire to the battery, and blow the main fuse near the battery.  Check the main fuse near the battery.
