will it hurt the 03 kia spectra to disconnect pos from the batt while running. I'm asking because i did and it still ran and while using a volt meter to see what my batt getting, my wife turns on the head lights so i can see better. The car stalled, and now turns over and won't start.

More than likely blew a fuse or worse, fried some wiring. Cause you are supposed to take off the NEGATIVE cable, not positive. ALWAYS REMOVE NEG< FIRST!

"Negative first" not the issue here. Turning on the lights with no battery would have put too much current on parts of the wiring never intended for that. Battery acts as "buffer" for sudden loads.
