Will the engine at least crank, what is the battery voltage?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I does not crank or make any sound at all and the battery voltage is 600acc
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 1 year ago.

A good battery will have 12.6 volts. The voltage when tested with a volt meter is what I need to know.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yeah it's a 12v battery
And it's good I don't have the tester but I put the car charger on it and it said it was completely charged as soon as I put it on the battery
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 1 year ago.

You will need a digital volt meter to complete all the electrical tests we need to do to figure out why it will not start from the prior event hooking the battery up backwards which burns wires, causes fuses and diodes and modules to fail.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Where can I get one from and how much do they cost
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Auto Zone sales an INNOVA brand DVOM for 29$.

Being you do not own nor I assume know how to use a DVOM. I do not feel like the question value is worth the time involved to teach you how to use a DVOM as well as electrically diag the car. If you do not want to raise the value then I will need to opt out.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I know what the problem is now. How do I get the 120 amp fuse out so I can replace it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nvm got it
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Glad its resolved.
