And one 8 gauge cable holds amps! I thought the thicker the cable, the more current it would hold. What other factor determines the amperage a set of jumper cables will carry? Also what is the logic in the lower the number gauge, the thicker the cable? Shouldn’t it be a higher number the thicker it is? Mavrick14 Gauge and length as well as quality of materials used. So how does a consumer determine the quality of materials and if the length is what they need? If you want normal 6 foot cables, then 6ga will be fine, even 8. For anything 4cyl or 6cyl, youll be fine with just about anything. The real expensive ones are for bigger engines like diesels which take more juice to turn over.

That was indeed a good point. Greeeeeenberg, i forgot to mention, i also tried the battery from the focus on my jeep and it didnt do the trick Locks, seats, stereo, heater fan, MIC, etc. This would indicate those related computers are OK at least.

Actually, yes, but not without help. Reversing the polarity on a battery can happen only a couple of ways. If you have a wet cell battery are filling it for the first time, and are using an old style, non smart charger, and short the terminals while you are filling it, yes it is possible to hook up the charger backward and reverse charge it.

Onan Electronic Ignition by Chuck Aulgur Before you start this project, be sure to read the article above to determine if you need a new baseplate for your Onan. The early models need this extra part. I feel the Onan should be running before your start this project. This new unit will not fit as is comes out of the package. The main problem with the new unit is there is insufficient room to make adjustments to the adjusting screw, so you can cut off both right angle sheet metal bends that hold the adjusting screw and discard the adjusting screw, spring and washers.

It is very easy to do this with one cut. Hold the unit with the black block toward you and the adjusting screw to your right. Loosen the adjustment hold down screw and move the two metal bracket pieces so that they are lined up even on the left side. This will give you enough adjustment slot to time the engine. Remove the adjusting screw, spring and washers and make a cut with a hacksaw on the right side just even with the outside of the hold down washer. Throw away the two small pieces you cut off.

File the cut edges smooth. Then remove the points and condenser from the old base plate and remount the new parts to the old base plate, using the new base gasket. The new components will screw down under the two screws used to hold the base plate.

Consider that neutral and ground are bonded at the main panel. I would really want to find the other end of this wire to see how it’s connected, as this looks very strange. I can’t think of a reason to do this considering there are no downstream circuits aside from maybe a broken wire? Or maybe the installer just made a mistake. Pull the neutral to ground wire and check for proper voltages.

hi my battery was going dead old battery so i went to jump it and by mistake with my small jumper i hooked it up wrong and real quick put it and off and i herd the spark after this the car did’t start. i replaced the battery and starter and one relay in the front compartment becouse it was buzzing.

See note 3 See note 3 Note 1: External relay installations involve the cutting and splicing of TIPM harness wires, which completely disconnects your normal fuel pump circuitry from the TIPM. Injecting power won’t help in this situation. More info is available here. What This Cable Can’t Do: This cable won’t solve problems that are unrelated to your fuel pump ie. If your vehicle won’t turn over and the starter will not even attempt to turn the flywheel with a properly charged battery, you likely have other issues that our cable cannot solve.

See this link for problems unrelated to fuel pump relays. Our cables are not intended to be permanent solutions. They are great testing tools and many use them to bypass a faulty relay, but please take the time to review the limitations listed above. Although many have used this cable as a long-term solution, we would prefer that you use it to temporarily bypass a faulty fuel pump relay. The reason for this decision is due to the excessive cost associated with crash testing a vehicle to determine if power is removed to the fuel pump during a crash.

A printed color copy of these instructions is included with each order. How To Build Your Own The design is fairly easy to build and there are two versions, depending on your need.

Your car suffered damage. The extent of this damage is presently unknown and may either be obvious to diagnostics or remain hidden for some time to come. The details of this damage should be unimportant to you save for getting a total repair and reasonable assurance that you’ll be safe and have a reliable vehicle into the future. It matters not one bit that there be a fuse here or there that might be damaged, or a resistor pack Not yours to diagnose or repair.

Many of us do padlock the trailer hitch lever down so it can not be disconnected from the ball. This can also be a good thing to get used to doing as it is a reminder to not forget to snap the lever down onto the ball. But what about securing the hitch extension into the bumper’s receiver? If you just use the original spring snap clip to hold the pin in place, it is rather easy to pull the pin, slide the trailer rearward enough to get the extension out of the receiver and then transfer the extension to a waiting vehicle that has the same commonly used receiver.

To prevent this, I have drilled my extension pin out enough to also accept a padlock bail, as shown in the photo below on the right. It is nice to purchase 2 or 3 padlocks using the same key for this situation. You do need to remove the extension padlock occasionally and clean the padlock up so it will function when needed.


UberX Michael – Cleveland said: I drive the same vehicle that he does under a different moniker – and he got me worried. I don’t want to carry around one of those larger jump-start battery things.

If you are using this cable (and the only reason you should is if you are in an older home and you are reusing the cable this is the way to go.) Most new installations use cat 3 or cat 5 cable. (BTW, use cat 5 for all new phone/ data wiring.

Paul Berry After building the product for Huffington Post, and owning the product and engineering groups at AOL after we were acquired, it was clear to me there was a huge gap between what the current CMS offering gave the world and what the world needed. Five years later we are at scale, moving the needle and doing to WordPress what Airbnb did to Craigslist.

Social and Centralized WordPress, Drupal, and the custom CMS solutions of the world are all independent, non-connected instances that each need to be updated individually. There are over 87 million instances of WordPress alone in the world, and each security upgrade, feature update, and every other single thing has to be updated for each site individually. By contrast, RebelMouse is a social, centralized platform built to keep up with the speed of the tech giants.

Our updates are pushed out to all of our sites at once and sometimes even multiple times a day with content creation tools integrated directly into social APIs. We can get clients off of clunky CMSs and into the future in a matter of days. We iterate with the times and tell you what’s changing in the world, how we’ve reacted to it, and how it’s built into the updates you get from the platform. Our creative agency team trains your teams or takes on special projects.

And it doesn’t take months, it takes hours or days. We can suck up a WordPress site, optimize its page speed, the user experience, the balance of ads, and how you monetize. We do it in our sleep now. We are simply the best in the world at this and have taken it to another level.

Jul 28,  · You would want to hook up the jumper cables between the cars, let the good car run for a few minutes to try to get a charge in the bad battery, and then turn the good car off .

I learned to jump a car by watching my uncle several times, and he used to be an electrical engineer. He was always really adamant about grounding it far from the battery with the impression that terrible things would happen otherwise. I guess I’ve just never dealt with anyone else so the idea of using the battery was like telling me to stick a fork in an electrical socket. I’ll stick with the proper directions, but at least I know what he was talking about now.

This is why most people clamp onto the frame for the last connection which should be ground on the donor car. That’ll also be the first connection you remove, so again, no sparks near the battery. You still need to be aware of the potential for sparks. I’ve seen the accident report on an actual battery explosion, though it was a stationary plant start battery.

Custom design and manufacture of state-of-the-art battery chargers, battery packs, UPS, and power supplies Introduction to battery charger use Engineers hate rules without explanations. We don’t want to hear “insert teeth guard while testing,” we want to know why you should consider the teeth guard. This is because knowledge is power.

Apr 12,  · If you’re lucky and you not only hook them up to the wrong terminals, but you don’t make a good connection, then maybe nothing will happen, maybe a few sparks. If you’re NOT so lucky, the sparks can ignite the fumes from the battery and cause an : Resolved.

Which to Connect First in Car Maintenance on October 7, Improperly connecting a car battery cable when jump starting your car can cause serious damage to your car, the car supplying the jump and possibly cause severe injuries from burns to you and the helpful motorist supplying the jump. The charge and discharge cycle of a battery causes hydrogen gases to build up. These gases escape through vented cell caps and can accumulate around the battery. If you connect the jumper cables incorrectly, you can create a much large spark than normal and this spark can ignite these gases and cause an explosion.

Connect Positive Cables First Connect one positive or red cable end to the positive or red terminal on the dead battery. Connect the other end to the positive terminal on the good battery. Connect Good Negative Attach the negative or black clamp to the negative terminal on the supply battery. Connect Negative Cable to Ground Find a clean metal component under the hood on the car being jump started and connect the negative cable end to it.

Start the Car Allow the dead battery to charge for a minute or two and then attempt to start it.

How bad is it? Not sure if i put the cables to the jumper on backwards. I wanted to get a car phone charger. Does the charger take energy from the gasoline Answers for The Question girardd Well, was the alternator still good?

Always ensure after you’ve had your hood up that it gets latched properly afterward before entering the freeway. Life really is fragile, freak accidents happen, be careful out there. A new set of jumper cables is a small price to pay for what it could have been.

Kaz 17k Thank you! You got right down to my core misunderstanding. My epiphany occurred on the idea that “the entire chassis is an extension of the minus terminal of the battery”. I’m still wondering why cars are designed this way, but that wasn’t in my original question. To be shocked, you have to touch two points that are connected to opposite terminals of the battery.

And the voltage is low, yes. I had a car once where the chassis was painted–I had to scratch the paint if I wanted to make electrical contact.
