If only the terminal ends are bad, then replacements are availble at most autopart and some dept. stores. You just cut the old end off and strip a little bit of isulation off the cable then bolt the new one on. very easy. There are also splice repair cables that replace a bad section, they come in different lenths. To replace the entire cables, it's a very difficult as they are routed through very tight spots and have clamps & stays that are bolted in places.

How do i change battery terminals


Very carefully. Batteries are potentially dangerous and can explode and accidental short circuits can cause personal burns and fires. Before you start make sure you know best practice for handling and working with batteries.

It is not often something goes wrong with a battery terminal causing it to need replacing. Mostly the originals are machine crimped onto the cable and it is a delicate and protracted affair to remove them so first ensuring the battery cable will still be long enough the cables are cut as close to the terminal as possible, the end of the cable is prepared and the new terminal fitted.

Soldering is the best method of fitting but if that isn't convenient there is a wide variety of types and sizes available at most auto factors or auto electrical shops, many of these are attached to the cable with pinch bolts or screws. Best results need terminals that are designed for the size of cable fitted to your car. It is often better to buy the ground lead assembly if it is a short type.

4.0 auto tran checked all fuses brown green stripe no power to it


in the future you should be more specific,, my best guess is you have acid erosion in your positive battery cable which has two 4 gauge lines coming from the connector on the battery,, your one cable that goes to the main fuse box is bad,, you can either replace the cable ( best way) or cut the connector off and keep trimming the cable until you see no more green acid erosion in the cable..and use an after market connector to repair.

How do i change the positive battery terminal cable only because it is slightly melted and car won't start?


It is important that battery connections are good and tight. If your cable is damaged, it is best to get a new one along with the terminal connections and is not expensive. It's pretty easy to see how the connections are made, but if you're unsure, just consult a parts store rep. They're usually pretty happy to lend assistance. Replacement time is probably about 10 minutes. Be sure the battery is completely disconnected before replacing any cables.

The end of the positive battery cable broke where it connects to the battery. How do I replace it?


Go to the auto parts store and purchase a replacement clamp. Expect to pay less than $6.00 for the clamp. Cut the wire back to a clean place, strip about 1/2 inch insulation away and insert it into the clamp and tighten.

I trust this answers your question satisfactorily.

How to replace battery


Hello: Make sure key is off and out of ignition. Remove back seat lower cushion. Disconnect negative (black) cable first. Disconnect positive (red) cable next. Remove vent hoses. Remove 13mm bolt back lower side of battery, remove hold down plate. Remove battery. It is a big HEAVY battery so be careful not to drop it. Best to wear gloves so you don't cut/scrape your hands. Re-install new battery in reverse of removal, ie cables Positive (red) first then negative (black).

How do I change the battery cable connector for 1998 ford explorer? The connector and the cable is one unit.


YOU CAN CUT THE BATTERY CABLE END OFF, IF THERE WILL BE ENOUGH CABLE LEFT TO ATTACH A NEW END. HOWEVER, IF THE END IS BAD, THE REST OF THE CABLE MAY BE CORRODED.. IF THAT IS THE CASE, THE WHOLE CABLE SHOULD BE REPLACED. THAT IS THE BEST WAY ANYWAY. REPLACE THE WHOLE CABLE. WHATEVER YOU DO DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE CABLE BEFORE YOU START TO WORK ON EITHER CABLE.

I can't get the positive battery terminal cable off of the old battery because it is too corroded. So, I would like to replace both terminal cables and the battery. The problem is there is a wiring harness...


Best would be to wet the battery terminals with water, take a sponge and place it on the battery terminals which are corroded and pour water to it, let it stay a while and again pour some water to the sponge, you will note tht the corrosion will start to fade away and thus you will be able to remove the battery terminals kinda easily!.
Hope this helps!

Battery cable will not come of, even after loosening. It's not my first time replacing a battery it seems to have some kind of lock. Ford Focus 2003


Hi Paul,

I've run across those stubborn ones too. There is a tool made specifically for this problem. Came in handy at the wrecking yard.

It looks like a little gear puller, grips the connector and pushes on the terminal. Separates the two without damaging the battery.

Best regards,
Mike
