Thread: Odyssey Battery
02-19-2010, 06:15 PM #1
I just picked up a new Odyssey Battery for my 1996 1100 ZXi. I want to make sure I got the correct one. I got the PC545-P as that is the one it was saying I needed. The guys at the store were getting a different part number. They said it would work but the posts were reverse on the one I got. The one I got wasn't showing up as the one I needed. So I am just curious if I got the correct battery?
Ok now for the dumb question. When I got this ski the neg battery cable was just laying in the hull. I have looked in the manual but it doesn't say where the other end of the cable is suppose to be mounted. Shows it in the diagram but doesn't say where it needs to go. So could anyone tell me where the neg. cable needs to be mounted in the hull on the 1100 ZXi 96?

I'm fairly certain you'll be fine with the battery as long as your wire configuration bolts up and the battery physically fits.
As for the ground cable they usually go under one of the mounting bolts that hold the starter to the side of the motor. Any solid motor bolt/case bolt will be fine.

Ok thanks, it does fit and everything connects as it should.
Now for the other problem. When I first turn the ski on shouldn't the lights self test and come on for a few seconds? Mine do not do anything but I am getting power because when I hit start I can hear the starter relay and the trim relay with I hit the trim. None of the gauges seem to be working though and the dummy lights are brand new. I have the ground wire from the harness grounded to the battery and nothing. Even tried ground it to a bolt. The more is out right now but I don't think that would matter. Checked the fueses and they are good too.

You say that the terminals on the battery you purchased are reversed. Are you sure that the neg cable is connected to the neg Battery post and the pos cable is connected to the pos battery post?
just a thought.

I am about out of ideas. I have worked on this all day and can't find out what the deal is.
