2003 vw beetle new battery hook up
I have a 2003 vw beetle and I went to put in a new battery
and when I went to start the car it wouldn't start and a
loud burst happened on the left side of the engine
followed by white smoke and a oily substance. What
could that be?
Sounds like a reversed polarity meltdown.
I connected the battery the right way
Then it could be a major short circuit, if it did this just when you turned the key to crank then look at the starter and the wiring for shorts.
