Hello I changed the Battery this morning in my Ford Ranger. The old one was OK bud I had a new one still in Stock so I changed the Battery. I made the stupid mistake to connect the postiv kabel to the negativ pole and the negativ to the postiv. Within a second I realised I made a mistake because of the sparks. The cable was connected for max. 2 seconds. After that I put the cables as it should be, I could start the Car with nor Problems. I only noticed the red battery light was burning also I have seen that the battery was not charged. Because Battery voltage was arround 12 V and not 14 as normal. Furhermore the Radio was dead, changed the fuse after that it was ok. 4x4 switch didnt work, changed the fuse and OK. I checked all the fuses, including the fuses under the hood, OK. But the battery is still not charging. Can you help?
have the same problem?
