1997 kawasaki mule 550 - Battery problem

Recommended Posts

Hey,i had a dead battery in my 550, but when i took it off i forgot to look at where the wires came off. I remember the positive and negative wires, but there is one wire that i don't know where it goes. This wire looks like it is connected to a bolt or nut not far from where the battery is located. when i hook up the new battery, i cannot get any power. the only way to get power is when i connect this wire with the negative wire and then hook it to the battery, but when i do this, the break line ends up smoking. does any one know where this wire should go. Would it be some sort of grounding wire.

Thanks.

usually the ground wire is underneath that cooling fan, right where the engine mounting bolts are. Kind of below the Oil FILTER

I have a 2001 550.. so it may be different.

      I am installing a second battery in my 07 Prowler. How do I wire it up so the stereo doesn't drain the main battery, but the second battery can still charge

      I would like to replace the stock battery on my 2007 Mule 3010 with a larger battery. I am wondering if any other electrical system modifications are necessary? Will the stock charging system supply enough current to keep the battery charged? The only accessories I have added are a KFI winch and a Cycle Country power bed lift.

      I noticed the battery post was melted when the pug wouldn't start... With the pug off, just placing the cable back onto the battery creates tremendous Heat with in 5 seconds or so... I had just taken off all the connections and clean them with a wire brush just a few months back...Including battery cables and wires for the starter solenoid. 
      Could this only be a short or bad connection or is there something else?..could the cells of the battery be doing this or maybe the rectifier/regulator? The rectifier from visual inspection doesn't seem to be melted or discolored!

      After replacing the cigar box sized battery in my Mule for two years in a row (at a cost of about $80 per trip), I decided to mount a deep cycle group 24 behind the front seat.
      Bought a sturdy battery holder, a couple of 32" cables and voila!....no more battery blues
      I usually get about three years out of one of these. 
      Also installed a 2 amp trickle charger.
      Me so happy.
