Re: installed dbattery backward

I said earlier, that the positive terminal would be front/left if you reversed the battery ............... obviously, I meant front/right.

Anyone got a drawing of a US 500 under the bonnet (hood)?
Maybe they are very different, because if they are anything like an EU 500, the leads couldn't reach.
Therefore they must be very different.

Best wishes,
Mick.

To turn it the other way round, the terminals would be at the front and in opposite directions, and I cannot see how the leads would reach.

Obviously they can, because you've done it.

Good luck, but I reckon you've buggered something big-time.

Best wishes,

He may have got a battery with the terminals reversed
Some have have a different way around
