To do a good job if you havent already done it is to tip hot water over the battery term and it will dry clean ,,if corroded term then replace it but you dont have to buy with a new lead ,,only a positive term only and then hot water over the battery lug when new term on then spray with Hair spray .
If battery cable dident corrod with other battery then your battery is either charging more than 13.5 volts and or battery post to battery is cracked
Wash and spray then check first

Battery possitive side corroded


Hey Anon, Yes, it could easily be the ground cable or the positive cable too... If the terminal shows any corrosion (either end) I would replace it after what you have experienced.. the corrosion will migrate inside the outer sheath covering the actual wire (you can't see it) and cause problems that are HARD to diagnose..

How do you change a positve battery cable on a 1998 dodge avenger car?


First a little more clarification would be helpful in, Why do you think the cable needs replaced? If the cable is corroded at terminal connection a new connection fitting is much more simpler than cable replacement. Nonetheless, remove the negative battery cable first, then the positive. (1)Clean the corroded area's with baking soda and water mixture (you should wear eye and hand protection- battery acid will eat through clothing in a matter of minutes).Scrub gently with nylon brush -using a wire brush can cause sparks and may cause a fire from hydrogen gas escaping form battery. Flush with clean water and your ready to start the next process. (2)Assuming you will adding a new terminal connection fitting - cut off bad fitting with wire cutters or hack saw, skin back wire about ONE inch and install new cable fitting.(3) install / reconnect battery. (4) Your cars computer will be cleared of all learned shifting patterns and other feedback information. It will revert back to factory preprogrammed settings. Average cost of replacement cable clamp $3.50. New cable cost to starter +$30.00

Happy motoring.

My 2002 pontiac grand am gt wont start it just makes a clicking sound i bought a new battery and starter and cylonoid and it still wont start i am going to go get a new relay cause that went out what else...


Make sure your battery cables aren't corroded, check both ends of the positive and negative cables. Make sure they are clean you an use a small wire brush or pieces of sand paper to clean them. If the cable is corroded down the middle or inside of you will need to replace it.

I can't get the positive battery terminal cable off of the old battery because it is too corroded. So, I would like to replace both terminal cables and the battery. The problem is there is a wiring harness...


Best would be to wet the battery terminals with water, take a sponge and place it on the battery terminals which are corroded and pour water to it, let it stay a while and again pour some water to the sponge, you will note tht the corrosion will start to fade away and thus you will be able to remove the battery terminals kinda easily!.
Hope this helps!

Starting problems


If the starter spins but the engine doesn't turn over, then it's either loose or corroded battery cables (remove and clean connections, especially at the starter) a bad starter solenoid, or a bad starter (bendix drive). Remove the starter and have it tested. If the engine turns over but doesn't start check to see if the anti-theft light is on (if it is you have to replace the ignition cylider). If the Theft light isn't on the most common problem to cause starting and stalling problems on the 4.3 L engine is the ignition module.
