Ok, I have done thousands of repairs on cars. All kinds of cars and all kinds of repairs. Long story short, I tried to hook up the new battery for my catera backward. YES, black to red red to black. Needless to say, I blew some fuses and the battery light on my dash is on. I am not getting a charge from the alternator. Is this a relay issue, a wire issue or a blown alternator. Im at a loss!!!!
Re: frieworks!! from the battery. battery light on
Thank you for your response. It does start. and it actually runs great until the battery starts to lose all its juice and then stuff happens. so I figure it is a good sign that it runs. I still cant believe that I did that. Like I said, I have done plenty of things to repair a car, but such a stupid thing that I caused it. I replaced the water pump last year so I can't imagine it will be much harder to do the alternator. Well, At least I hope. Thanks for the help. I will update.
