After a bit of trouble with the brake system having had to replace the whole front worth of calipers and master cylinder. I used a battery in the trunk of the car which is bigger then the original and jumper cables it started right up drove it out the driveway parked it in the street and shut it off. Now it wont start it heats the battery cables up a lot. And just struggles to start. Just wondering if anyone else has encountered this. As to the original battery it was dead and needed to be replaced so i took it out of the engine bay.

What cables are you using? If they are longer than the stock cables or a smaller diameter, and are not attached well they will heat up quickly.

Was the old battery in the first time you stated it? Most jumper cables aren't thick enough to crank an engine directly, even if the old battery was mostly bad it helped crank the engine, wihtout it in place all the current has to go through the jumpers and they can't handle it. Larry
