    Default Battery connection for MFS 25

    What terminals are the battery cables attached to? A diagram or photo would be great.

    The ground is attached in the picture, but I don't think it is in the right place.

    STOP.

    The positive goes to the starter relay. Ground to any good ground; I believe there's a ground terminal on the starter frame on your model.

    Apparently this project exceeds your current skills. You should seek the aid of a local automotive or marine mechanic. However:

    Find the starter. Trace the big wire to the starter relay. The + battery cable goes to the other lug on that relay.
    Any block ground is OK. There is a ground lug near the top of the starter frame.Click image for larger version.

    Thanks Paul, the illustration helped. Everything works as it should now. I didn't realize that the terminal next to the one the heavy wire to the starter was the one I wanted. I'm not very familiar with this kind of wiring, but I knew that one of you guys could help.
