I just replaced the positive battery cable from battery to starter. It also has a wire that goes to the main fuse box and another junction where the alternator ties in. I went to start it afterwards and it acted like a dead battery. As soon as I hook up the battery it starts smelling like rotten eggs. I jumped it and it starts right up and runs fine. But dead shortly after. I would think if the wire was shorted to ground it would make a large spark but it doesn't seem to. Thanks for any help.
