Hi,

First off need to know what problem you were trying to correct before you replaced battery terminal harness

Also does the red or postive harness go all the way to the starter

Prior issue was intermittent clock resetting (similar to when negative terminal disconnected)
Terminals and wires were corroded, so I decided to replace them.
The red harness has a short line to the 175 amp fuse, and another to the starter

Hi

More then likely the red wire you attached at starter is touching the second terminal on the starter causing the starter to engage sometimes this happens when tightening down the nut the wire spins
