Changed battery, car wont start.

Recommended Posts

Hi, as the title says I changed a low Battery for a fully charged one, (newish), and when re-connected the indicators stayed on, (no flashing), and the engine will turn over but not catch. It seems to have "locked" me out. Any idea where the "reset" button is?

TIA

Bryan

i would check the polarity to make sure, do the dash lights come on ?

did you just undo the terminal or the nut on top as well ?

Polarity's ok and I can't remember if the dash light comes on - must do if the engine turns over though, eh?
