    Thanks Guru.
    Car engines are not quite my thing, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do...
    That is a tight fit in that compartment.
    I took the easy way out and replaced just the clamp.
    It is working great!

98 chevy prizm completely dead. Need to check fuse but don't know which one

You have to start at the battery. Is it fully charged? It should show at least 12.6 volts to verify a good battery. If it is less than 12 volts, it will not start the engine anyway, so it must be tested and recharged if good, or replaced if bad. Next the positive and negative cables at both ends of them must be clean and tight. By now you should be able to have headlights and other accessories. And the key turned to on should light up all the warning lights and gauges on the dash, and when turned to "start", the engine should be cranking over and then run.

If the car is completely dead, start at the battery. If you still suspect fuses, next check all the maxi fuses- the power distributors right after the battery. Only one of them would cause whole differing circuits to not have power.

I replaced the battery terminal cable ends. Now the car will not start, There is a clicking noise from the starter.

Bad connection on cable ends or where they connect to battery. Quick check is if you have a good set of jumper cables, use the jumper cable as a replacement for what maybe the defective one. Hook negative cable good to battery neg. post and then put other side on neg cable to engine ground on block. See if it cranks, if it does than the trouble is on the neg. cable. If not then put positive cable on pos. post of battery. Then put other side of pos. cable on the starter post, try to start. If it cranks then the trouble is on the pos side of cable. Hope this helps.

How do you remove the positive battery cable? 1998 Isuzu Rodeo

The first thing to do is to remove the negative cable before the positive cable to prevent any shock and sparks. Battery cables have a nut and bolt keeping the lead made connector snug to the terminal of the battery. After loosening the nut you will need a pair of channel lock pliers to wiggle the battery cables end attached to the battery This will spread the connector open some to remove

Wiring Diagram 1998 Chevy S-10 starter replacement

The starter has one large cable from the battery positive, and a wire that goes to the solenoid (Part of the starter) that becomes hot when the key ignition is turned to start. This also passes through the neutral safety switch. (So it wont start in gear) Not sure if this is what you need, a little vague.

99 chevy prizm starter problems

Have you verified the engine will turn over by hand? Disconnect the battery, get a socket that will fit the crankshaft bolt and try to turn the engine over. If OK, reconnect your battery cables, use your digital volt meter, place the negative lead of the meter to the positive battery cable post and the positive meter lead to the start solenoid stud at the starter. You should not see more than 0.5 volts. If you see more than that, your positive cable is bad.
Repeat the same step with the negative cable, result should be the same.
Start there and let me know.
