Car won't start after battery hook up

Asked by Dec 11, 2013 at 11:08 AM about the 2001 Mazda Tribute ES V6 4WD

Question type: General

Hello there,
I have a 2001 mazda tribute. I unhooked the negative terminal on the battery, lifted it up from one side to remove some litter underneath and I hooked up. Now the car will not start. All dashboard lights on, windows work and wipers but will not crank trying to start it. Can anyone help me out please?
Thanks in anticipation.

you have to have a bad connection.. remove Both cables,clean with Battery post cleaner ,if that don't work check the connections from battery to ground and to starter or relay..just because you have some power to radio etc. dose not mean you have enough to crank..good luck
