If you have already loosened the fastener, try to rotate the clamp back and forth. If it still doesn't move, spray a small amount of penetrating oil on it and let it soak for 30 minutes, then try rotating again. You may have to take a screwdriver and carefully pry the clamp apart.

Positive cable was corroded in battery acid how do i put the four cables on positive into clamp and on post


Clean wire and pos. clamp inside, where the wires go. Apply flux to wires and inside clamp then solder them in using propane torch. Small wires can be connected to the clamp bolt. These will need 5/16 crimp connectors crimped on them.

I need to replace the positive battery cable and it doesn't look easy. it looks like its connected to the motor in about 3 spots. should i just take it to the shop?


  • Open the hood and find the top-post battery on the passenger's side of the Honda Accord.

  • Loosen the bolt on the black negative battery cable with a box wrench or cable clamp pliers. Carefully wriggle the cable end off the post.

  • Repeat the process on the red positive cable. Make sure to take off both cables from the battery even if you're replacing only one.

  • Follow the negative cable to where it's grounded to the front frame of the Honda Accord. Remove the end of the cable with the wrench. Track the positive cable to its connection on the front side of the engine and remove it with the wrench.

  • Clean the battery posts with a small wire brush

  • Attach the new positive cable first, reversing the process in Step 4. Put on the negative cable and start the vehicle to make sure the connections are working properly.

  • It's not that hard; Make sure that both cables are disconnected from the battery FIRST, then remove the engine connections one at a time so that you do not mix up the connections.

    1994 Toyota 4 runner: I changed battery just fine; but can't get the fastener back in place.


    I would make sure the fastener fits your battery and vice versa. Make sure it is not upside down or something like that. Is the replacement battery the same size as the old one? Battery REMOVAL & INSTALLATION NOTE: Refer to Section 1 for details on battery maintenance.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the terminal, then disconnect the positive cable. Special pliers and pullers are available to remove the clamps. Be careful of the many wires and fittings on and around the positive terminal. NOTE: To avoid sparks, always disconnect the negative cable first and reconnect it last.
    2. Unscrew and remove the battery hold down clamp.
    3. Remove the battery, being careful not to spill any of the acid. NOTE: Spilled acid can be neutralized with a baking soda and water solution. If you somehow get acid into your eyes, flush it out with lots of clean water and get to a doctor as quickly as possible.
    4. Clean the battery posts thoroughly before reinstalling or when installing a new one. A light coating of petroleum jelly or battery terminal spray protectant will help fight corrosion.
    5. Clean the cable clamps using the special tools or a wire brush, both inside and out.
    6. Install the battery, and the hold down clamp. Connect the positive and then the negative cable. Do not hammer them into place. The terminals should be coated with grease to prevent corrosion. CAUTION
      Make absolutely sure that the battery is connected properly before you turn on the ignition switch. Reversed polarity can burn out an alternator in a matter of seconds.

    Replace positive battery cable 97 montero


    A lot of cars have two cables on the positive post.
    Do you need to replace the cables or is the battery post clamp broken. You can buy a replacement post clamp if you have the type of cables that are bolted to the clamp.
    If you need the cable, a oem replacement from your dealer parts counter will match. You can get after market replacements, just look for one that matches your original as close as possible. The parts counter guy should be able to help.

    Voltage drop test


    First, check battery post to cable connection: positive meter lead on battery positive post, negaitve lead on battery's positive cable clamp. Crank the engine and note the reading. A good connection should have zero voltage drop. Second, check the positive cable: positve meter lead on positive battery clamp, negative lead on starter terminal connector. A good cable will show a voltage drop of .2 volts or less while cranking. Third, check the starter connection: positive meter lead on positive battery terminal on the solenoid, negative meter lead on actual starter stud. A good connection will have a voltage drop of near zero volts. Now to check the negative side of the circuit. Total drop on the ground side should be .3 volts or less and can be checked by placing positive meter lead on starter housing and negative meter lead on battery ground post. Take your reading while cranking the engine, and be sure your connection at the starter is solid and clean. If total voltage drop on this side of the circuit is excessive, complete testing at all connections in the same fashion as the positive side of the circuit. Check the following: between battery post and clamp (zero voltage drop), cable end at battery to cable end at engine. (.2 volts or less), cable end at engine to engine itself (near zero voltage drop), and finally between starter housing and engine block (.1 volts or less).
