    Need Help with my battery and alarm

    I disconnected my battery 2 weeks ago to rebuild my alternator and switch out plugs and wires. When I touch the screw of the negative to the terminal, it sparks and my alarm goes off and my headlights flip up and down WTF. Is there a reset or something to get this to stop? Any help would be great.

    Did you hook up the positive cable first?

    I'm thinking so.

    You should just have to lock then relock your car with the key fob.

    Might also try pressing the alarm button on there as well.

    Thanks for the feed back guys. I disconnected the fuse to the amps I have in the back for my stereo. That stopped the sparking when I touched the negative cable to the post. After that I just had to turn the alarm off with the fob. Pretty simple, just couldn't try it last night, my alarm would have woke up my son. Glad it was a simple problem.
