View Full Version : No power

08-24-2008, 08:41 PM
Just got done swapping in my SR and my problem is that i have no power what so ever. when i go to hook up the battery the positive side heats up very fast and will even smoke which tells me theres a short somewhere or something not hooked up right. on my lower harness i have one unsuse connection that looks like it could be a ground or something. starter is wired, alternator is, and a ground by the strut


wires circled in the blue, Any ideas as to what this is for or other problem areas i should be checking?

go back over your wiring from the starter to the battery the possitive goes stright to the starter you might wana see if you have that correct first

pulled off the lower harness and unplugged the ECU. tried hooking up the battery and same problem, teminal getting hot and smoke. could it be a bad battery?

your battery cannot do that! it has to be a wiring issue somewhere check grounds and also make sure you dont have the negative hooked up to the starter + goes to starter - goes to a good ground like on the chassis somewhere not the strut like on the frame and if there is rust, paint ect.... grind it off to get the best connection possible
