Re: Wiring Help! Connected battery and car tried to start.
How was it before it was converted to the HEI and the alternator ?. I'm not trying to be ignorant but sometimes people have bought things assuming things were fine only to find out they got taken. You know the story, a guy selling a car says it runs fine but when you want to hear it he says it just needs a battery and it will fire right up for you and you buy it and it needs more than just that.
If it was fine before I would look at all of the spots you worked on and did things to. I might think that maybe a wire is crossed or something goofy on the starter solenoid for it to crank over by itself or maybe on the HEI conversion it got wired to the wrong spot.
The horn though has me baffled as this is on a relay BUT I've seen stranger things before.
I would just look at what you have done real close. If all else fails disconnect what you did and connect the battery then disconnect it and connect one things and try the battery connection again. If it's fine move on to the next connection and so on one at a time.
