Make sure you connected the auxiliary leads to the cable. Small cables that go from battery terminal to power distribution boxes
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

I ACTUALLY REPLACED THE CABLE ENDS AND THE AUX LEADS CONNECT TO

THEM. CAN IT BE ANYTHING ELSE?

Expert:  Jason replied 8 years ago.
Maybe just need tightened a little more, double check all leads are connected.

DID NOT HEAR FROM ANOTHER EXPERT THIS WEEK. I STILL NEED HELP.

IS THERE A FUSE OR SOMTHING BETWEEN TH STARTE RELAY AND THE IGNTION THAT I COULD HAVE BLOWN?

Expert:  Euroguy replied 8 years ago.

Hello, I will try to help you.

 

There are fuses is the main engine compartment fuse box that could have gotten damaged. The fuse box is located on the driver's side back by the brake master cylinder. The first fuses to check are the large/cartride type fusable links. These supply power to most of the vehicle and take main battery power and split it off to the vehicles sub-systems. The fuse descriptions should be on the inside of the box cover.
