I apologize for the noobie question. I've been trying to find an answer but I haven't seen anything that matches my situation closely enough to put my mind at ease. I just want to verify before I do something that may cause damage to my gear.
I had to disconnect the negative and positive terminals on my battery to install a short ram intake for my car. When I took out the power cable going from the battery to the inline fuse, the ring terminal broke off at the fuse holder. Now I've got a loose bit of cable and my amps are no longer powered. I had a local car audio shop put on a new terminal for me so the crimp should be much better this time around. Now it's just a matter of getting it hooked back up.
What is the correct order for handling this? I need to get the old terminal out and reattach the cable. Where I get lost is what parts need to be disconnected and in what order would they need to be reconnected.
I'm just not sure about how to handle the fuse. They make me a bit nervous so I thought I'd call upon the experts of CarAudio. I have a rough idea of what to do but I figured it would be better to put it off for a little bit to get a reliable answer instead of running the risk of screwing something up.
Thank you for your time. I appreciate any advice you have to offer.
All the best,
