Tyrone Hook (Long Island, New York) - 1984 Mercedes-Benz 190
Tyrone took his battery out to help start another car. When he put it back in his car, he hooked up the terminals backwards and heard a loud pop. He corrected it, but now the car turns over slowly and takes a couple of minutes to start. Tom and Ray think he might have fried a ground wire, suggest he try using a jumper cable to create his own ground. If car starts, it’s a fried wire--if not, he may need a new battery.
