BATTERY HOOK UP

1996 Chrysler LHS

Electrical problem
1996 Chrysler LHS

i have a 1996 LHS. Im connecting the battery and there are 4 wires. 3 black 1 red. 2 of the black wires are pointing to the negative terminal, the red one is pointing to the positive terminal. The 4th black wire is also bent towards the positive terminal but when I traced the wires. This one goes to a small black box on the right side of the car, where the rest run down the left side of the battery. How do I hook this up correctly?

If you are not sure, do not hook it up. Wait until you have discovered where it is going to. Each negative wire is for a vehicle ground, the return path that all power circuitry returns, it should be a body or engine ground path, no component, it goes to no fuse, the positive is for starter, and fuses, plus hazard flasher. I would open up the box, it's probably positive, or red terminal, ok?

The red wire goes to the battery positive terminal, negative terminal of the battery goes to the fender or to the engine block, the other 2-black wires goes to the fusibile links.

Do a continuity test on the battery negative cable to the engine or block if you have resistance you got the correct wire for the engine ground-the other 2 again goes to the fusible
