Question about 2007 Mazda 5 2.0L
My negative battery terminal on my mazda 5 needs replacement Where can I get one without having to buy the whole harness
In the past I have found the fusible links at the autoparts store but taking off the old one matching it up. The one I worked on was bolted from the back side.

IT seems that you are in a spot of bother here . Battery cables can be manufactured by an accredited auto electrician so find a good shop and have then make what you want. Normally negative cables (earth cables have no fuses) so I suspect that with all the extra cables and fusible link that you are looking at the positive cable. However take the vehicle to the auto electrician and he will be able to make the cable for you or repair the end .

Removing either battery cable, thereby taking the battery out of the circuit, with the engine running can cause the alternator to charge full tilt and destroy sensitive micro volt (computer controlled) components; and I've seen wiring harnesses go up in flame from it. You may have a module problem.

Yes. Before you go brand new, however, look around on E-Bay or at a junk yard-you can usually find what you need right there, and with some relays to prevent issues, you can get better than new. On the other hand, A magazine like http://www.blackdragonauto.com/features/rx/RX.htm might have a good wiring set. I trust that magazine- I get a sister production, LMC trucks, and they're reasonable priced, and good quality parts.

Use a wrench to remove the negative and positive battery cables: They are clearly labeled "+" and "-." Always remove the negative cable first, as this isolates the power to the metal parts of your car. Tuck the cables away from the battery as you don't want them to accidentally touch a battery terminal when you're wiring your alternator.
Locate the alternator terminals. There are two: one marked "live," "pos" or "+" and the other marked "neg," "field" or "-."
Locate the two cables. The positive (red) cable goes to your battery via a wire loom or harness. The negative (black) cable attaches to a metal part of your car.
Check how the cables attach to the alternator terminals. Some connect using eyelets that hook over the terminal and tighten with a bolt; others connect by inserting the wire under the terminal and tightening a bolt.
Loosen the two bolts using a suitable-sized wrench or, if the cables connect using eyelets, remove the bolts.
Insert the exposed end of the negative (black) cable under the loosened bolt on the negative terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.
Insert the exposed end of the positive (red) cable under the loosened bolt on the positive terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.
Replace the positive battery cable on the positive battery terminal using a wrench. Replace the negative battery cable on the negative battery terminal.
