Sparks

Help guys I replaced the alternator on my 96 maxima. Now when I put the battery cables on I get SPARKS coming from the positive terminal. And yes I'm putting them on the right way.

Re: Sparks

make sure you have the large wire to the alternator going to the right post and that its not shorting on something else. if not it might have a internal diode short and need to be checked or replaced again
