Hey gang I had a crazy situation yesterday I was reinstalling my subframe and then all of a sudden my battery starts making these loud hissing sounds and gets crazy hot and start smoking so I disconnect the battery cables get a towel to remove the super hot battery! The key wasn't even in the ignition!!! My logic tells me to check my wiring next to the sub frame, all connections for open wires and more. But how do I check a rectifier/regulator to see if it works properly or not? And what else should I be checking?
Has anyone ever had this type of situation happen to them? If so what was your problem and your solution?
In regards to the short circuit what do I look for I'm not familiar with electrical, I'm pretty dumb when it comes to this point, do I check every wire individually (if so how do I do it?) do I go to Home Depot and buy 1 of those gadgets? To test the wires? How do I check the rectifier / regulator? Thanks for help in advance gang
Best do a search on Youtube and teach yourself how to use a 12V test light & a multimeter. With that knowledge you should be able to find the fault.
You can also take out fuses and see which fuse stops the draining the battery, thereby finding the wiring that may be at fault.
