    1999 Genesis reversed battery connection

    Fuel injected or carburetors?

    What symptoms are occurring?

    Cranking OK?
    MFI display OK?

    Checked all circuit breakers and fuses?

    What voltage do you have at the battery during cranking?
    Must be at least 10.6 volts during cranking, and preferably 11.0 volts or higher.

    If it has Ficht fuel injection;
    Fuel pump running?
    Fuel pressure?

    Battery voltage must be checked using a multi-meter (not the MFI), at the battery posts, while engine is cranking.

    reset breaker
    not checked 1/4 amp fuse yet

    Not sure what you mean by this. Explain again.

    I think the spark plug caps should be the resistance type.

    Are you saying that you did some repairs on the electrical wiring, changed the spark plug wire caps, then connected the battery backwards, and now you have no spark after connecting the battery correctly?

    What electrical repairs did you do, and why?

    hi all will check fuses but mfd and bilge work so i dont think its them, looked at manual, will test leads from coil to new plug caps as there got different resistences, test the ohms readings , manual said you can twist and pull out leads from coil is that right!!
