Asked by Nov 21, 2013 at 12:43 AM about the 1997 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 GT Standard Cab SB

Question type: Car Customization

Hi, my 1997 gmc had a deid battery. So I
replaced it. When I was replacing it, the
wires were damaged.  I cut the wires and
put a adapter in place of the old one. I put
my new battery in and now it has now
power to anything. Checked the fuse for the
battery but its still good and unhooked the
wires to make sure I did it correctly.  The
new battery is charged... can anyone give
me any ideas. Please and thank you.

Recheck your adapter make sure it is tight and all of the wires are connected, that 1 red wire that feeds the power distribution box can be a bit of a problem when using the adapters.
