Question about 1999 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

Wire attached to the Positive Battery Cable

I put in a new battery in my Intrepid, and while finishing the job and replacing the air filter housing. The smaller wire coming off the positive battery cable broke. I tried to repair it via splicing with a quick (auto zone) harness, wrapping with black electrical tape. Now my battery light comes on approx. 10-15 after running the car.
Question...what's the best solution in repairing that, for I feel maybe the harness is not letting enough current across to each wire? What & where does that wire lead down to?

Engine cables


First take the negative cable off the battery. Then the positive cable. Now the positive cable will attach to the starter with a large eyelet, so take off the nut for the cable, then remove the positive cable, the other wires that attach here simply pick up battery power at that point. Put them all back on with the positive cable in the order they were pulled off. Tighten the nut down. Clamp the positive onto the battery, then the negative.
To make the job the easiest, don't buy a generic positive cable, but buy the one specifically designed for your car. If Nissan is too expensive, buy a generic one that is the same length with the same connectors at each end. Doesn't have to be exactly the same length, but within 3 or 4 inches. The length of a wire or cable is important when considering how much power is to be applied to the starter-a considerably longer cable will just have less power available at its end.

Need instructions on how to change the battery on my 1999 300M?


You need to remove the panel from in front of the passenger side front tire to access the battery. You will also have to remove the air filter housing to get at the battery hold down so you can remove the battery. Hope this helped.

Hope it helps and have a great day!
