:?

Ok here's the story...

I just change the clutch cable because it broke up... and now "i think it was all fine... but i commited a huge mistake...

i connect the car battery on the wrong way, the positive side on the negative side (i accepted boos from you guys) and well once i turn the key to start the car there's no response.

So i want to know if the car (a suzuki swift 1991 manual 1.3lts) have a computer or something similar... so i can identify the problem and fix it... :( :oops:

Since im new to the suzuki swfit engines i really want to learn the possible of the impossibles.

Greetings From Mexico...

Frankie Alva.

Welcome, Frankie.
No problemo.
Just put the battery back in the right way.
It might have blown a fuse.
If so, just replace that and you're good to go.
Been to Los Cabos a couple times; nice place!

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

I did the same once, not watching what I was doing. It blew the main fuse in the fuse/relay box next to the battery.

If I remember correctly, it was yellow with a clear top (so you can see it"s blown). I think you need a cross type (Phillips) screwdriver to remove it.

you can jump that fuse by connecting a wire to both sides or with the battery off the car you can fold those legs down on to each other and it should get you running. You might want to swap it at some point though.

It might be attached with two Phillips screws, so consider that when you try to pull it out.

This ^^^ is not...I repeat...NOT a safe thing to do. If you just want to get the car started, I guess its okay, providing you are certain that you have no shorting circuits...otherwise, get it done correctly.
