Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
1997 Ford Explorer - would not start. Tow truck driver reached under the truck - and it started. He said corroded cables. I find only 1 cables that looks corroded. It is under the car on the Passenger's side. Is it a ground?
If it is the black cable running up to the battery it is the the main ground. I would go to your local auto parts store and pick up a battery terminal cleaner there are different types. There is also a kit with two small spray cans one has a cleaner the other is a paint to protect from future corroision. I had this problem about a year and a have ago and after using the kit no problem so far. Good Luck
