Battery Cable Replacement help?

I am trying to replace the battery cable in a 6 cylinder Chrysler Labaron. Because the are old and corroded. There is a clicking noise when I try to start the car and it seems like it isn't getting the power it needs to tturn over efficiently and start. It tries to turn over but then stops. I also think I broke the ignition switch because it turn all the way now without any catch and doesn't connect. It's like I broke it and it is limp. Any pointers for me. I am trying to fix it myself if possible.

    I have not replaced the battery cable yet because I am trying to figure out how to remove the old one. It has three wires coming off the positive terminal. I am guessing one is at the starter? One goes to the ignition switch and one goes to the relay switches.

    Also because of repeated attempts to get it to fire up my ignition switch is broken because now it turns effortlessly into the on position and it feels like it is not catching. Now nothing happens when I attempt to turn it over. I think I broke the ignition in the steering column....any pointers?

Does the negative battery cable go to the starter?plastice cover is torn and wire is exposed, seems to be corrided. van runs , but after maybe a day it won't start without a jump.


NO. The negative cable connects usually to the frame of the vehicle in order to ground it properly. If the cable is corroded it should be fairly easy to replace. Just buy a new negative cable and find out where the old one leads to, take out the bolt and bolt the new cable on in the same place and then connect to the battery.

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 2005 300 will did not start so I checked the battery and cleaned it up jumped the battery it started up notice the cable is messed up what should I do.


Aftermarket parts houses have replacement battery cables for some cars. For other cars, there are replacement battery cable terminal ends available. You cut the existing terminal off of the battery cable and the replacement terminal will clamp on to the end of the cable with bolts.

NOTE: Nothing on your car works without the battery. I have had many vehicles towed into my shop because of improper cable end replacements. Make sure the connections are clean and tight and free of corrosion.

I put the key in the ignition and turn it forward to just before it turns over you know when the dash lights come on. i do that then when i try to turn it over all that happens is it clicks then my lights...


Suspect the positive battery terminal is either corroded, or the cable itself has corroded through. If you have a meter or test light, look for voltage at the starter solenoid where the positive battery cable connects to. Have someone try the starter while watching this point. If the voltage disappears during the start attempt, try replacing the positive battery cable. There are replacement ends available (for the battery end), but they are problematic at best. Just remove the old terminal, cut the insulation back somewhat, and mount the replacement on the cable (two small bolts). Hope this helps!

Mazda 6 wont turn over,and all dials go mad.is it battery or starting motor,or something else.


Check the battery positive cable there is a problem with the positive side of the battery cracking open and corroding the cable. You may need to just replaced the battery and cable if the corrosion hasn't gone to deep in the cable.
