I need battery help

2 posts in this topic


I bought the kids a 94 artic cat 340 pantera to learn the fun of sledding.

It needed a new battery, so I bought a new one, apparently for that type of battery there is a left post version and a right post version.

well i bought the wrong one, and very stupidly hooked it up reverse polarity, tried starting it after charging, and got no response at all when trying to start it of course.

I reversed polarity, and it still does nothing at all. I know the battery is good.

What harm have I done? Have I burned something up, like the iginition by reversing the polarity on the posts.

And, yes, obviously I am not that smart when it comes to electrical things.

someone please help and let me know what i can do.

thanks, Eric

I am sure you blew a fuse, check the fuses. I would say the fuse box is under the hood and on the right side (sitting on the seat) above the chain case. By the air box. It should be a little black box (1" x 3-4"'s) and flip top lid. I am not sure what fuse it is, but there should only be 3-4 fuses at the max.

That is where I would start.

Good luck!

    • If ya'll did what you were supposed to and was collecting concurrent pensions from the state,county, city and township and toss in a pipe fitter pen for honesty, this would be a non issue here. Dummies.     #windycityway
    • You know I'm kidding!
    • It really doesn't matter if Trump fails to concede, his party, that's already deserting, will do it for him. 
    • Let's keep one thing in mind if we want to revisit the FL vote recount:  Mr. Gore did not start whining and crying rigged and fraud two months before the actual election. If was only after it appeared the count was incorrect that Gore and his party asked for a recount. And as I recall it was Gore himself who finally said "okay, enough is enough, end it." There is little doubt in my mind the final count in this years presidential election is going to be so lopsided in favor of Mrs. Clinton there will be no legitimate reason for a recount.  
    • What was the popular vote? What was the Electoral vote? Why did they want the recount in Florida?   Wouldn't  you also want that recount from the State that cost you the Election with many votes being questioned? (CHADS) What was the difference in Florida in popular vote?   When everything was decided in the correct way Gore did accept and said so.
    • Uh, from the taxpayers of various types of course.  Or was that some sort of rhetorical question for effect?  
    • Y'all do recall al gore  and his reaction to being defeated.  He refused to concede for weeks after the election.  Wanted to keep counting and recounting until he won.    And the Democrat party refused to accept the results for years... 
    • From the middle and upper middle income people!
    • $5 says the election won't even be close enough to demand a recount and the crybaby whining will be unprecedented.
