engine just clicking
hi all, this is my first post and i am need of dire help!
i was changing the power cable from my alternator to my battery to bigger cable as i heard it was better when you have ICE in your car like i have.
anyway, i took the bolt that holds the wire out of the alternator and replaced the wire and now my engine clicks just once when i try to start it?
tihnk i shud mention i was a bit of a *** and forgot to disconnect the battery and the end of the power cable coming from the battery and going to the alternator earthed but just seemed to mess up the ring terminal a bit and it didnt earth on the starter motor.
also my battery is fine, runs at 12.8 volts when the engine is off and 14.5 when the engine used to turn on.
hopefully ive given u guys enough information to give me a hand.
