Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Mike, Turns out, the positive cable end was loose, therefore the battery wasn't charging. Next question. Do you have to replace the entire positive cable or can you just replace the terminal end, and is it something the Dealer has to do? Thanks! D
Excellent. I love saving people money. So I'll do it again.
You can replace just the end if there is enough slack in the cable. They are available in any auto parts store. There are a few different types. You'll want one that holds the cable with a strap held down by two bolts.
You need to strip the cable insulation (about 1/2-3/4"), put it under the strap and bolt it down until it's snug (not too tight, it's soft metal and can strip easy). Then attach the terminal to the battery, tighten it and you're done.
If you need advice on anything else, just click the ASK button near my name. Then it will be routed directly to me. It was sheer luck that it was me that found your second request. or was it?
BTW, thanks for the rating. I'm glad it worked out so well for you.
