  • Stupid battery connection problem

    I just tried getting power to my car yesterday and all it did when I hooked up the cables was spark ridiculously. Almost like it tried to weld itself to the terminal really. I read that this could be a short problem, anyone have any input?

    Maybe the wires are grounding out somewhere. Follow where both lead to and check condition.

      Ehh, it's mounted in the trunk. Negative is alright, positive is connected to a copper plate where two more positives branch off, one to the starter, and the other goes to the fuse box, which is also in the trunk.

      They are also 2 ga wires. It would be hard to wear through them. That and the power was low, but worked before I took the car apart.

        Ah, I think I'm about to be embarrassed. How is the starter wiring hooked up? Is the top lug the one for the positive battery?

            They're both copper, on mine. After reviewing it, it looks like the upper one is the only unused lug.

              There should be one 2ga wire going to the starter. Then there is a plug for the lower engine harness that comes off of it.
