Disconnected positive terminal first on my battery

Jacob Lopez

Asked by Jul 13, 2014 at 03:00 AM about the 2005 Cadillac STS 4.6

Question type: General

I disconected my positive terminal on
my battery first and the socket
touched a piece of metal and started
sparking real bad and got welded on
to my car. Will it mess up any of my
electronics or my computer?

You won't know that until or if problems occur. It may not have if you notice no problems.

Now you know why they say negative cable first. It could have blown some main fuses but like what FordNut stated you won't really know until it shows.
