I have a 03 Honda trx250ex (4 wheeler) battery went dead.

Customer Question

I have a 03 Honda trx250ex (4 wheeler) battery went dead . When I hooked up new one I reversed the cables (hooked battery up Backwards) . Now when I try to hook it up correctly , as soon as I touch positive post cable , the starter spins (cranks) .It blew the fuse when hooked up back wards . but I don't see any burnt or damaged wires . So I unhooked the battery cables from battery & put an OHM, meter between the pos. & neg. cables. I unhooked EVERY connector in the wire harness (1 at a time ) & never lost continuity to ohm meter even disconnected starter relay. only way I could cut continuity was to unhook battery wire from starter . I bought a shop manual but it mostly tells u how to trouble shoot to get it started . not how to stop it from cranking have a ohm meter & a unpowered test light . am good with a test light so, so with an ohm. meter . I don't understand why I can't find the problem by just disconnecting the connector to a device I. E. if I have a bad neutral safety switch & disconnect the connector to it should that not stop the continuity through the battery cable hooked to an ohm. meter have checked diode back by battery its ok . but think I have a bad natural safety switch . if so how do I know if this is only problem ?
