If it is your battery terminals, the ends, they are not hard. They just cost a few dollars a piece. The entire cable is difficult to change. They go to the starter and the alternator. I would say the cost is probable expensive. You would have to call Ford to get a quote. Your best bet would be a junkyard though. But no matter what, it is a tough fix. Anytime you deal with electrical wires, it is a hassle. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have 2001 bmw 325i and I replays the battery after tha my speromeeter stop working is sum electric or cable how ken I fix my self


Could be your rear wheel speed sensor(s) not super pricey but it is a BMW. I would replace those as your speedometer is electric not cable.
Average price is $270.00 USD I do believe. If that dosnt fix your problem you may need to replace the wiring as it may have been snagged and broken.

Battery cable kroded car want start how can i get it to start


well for starters if the cable is corroded you will need to measure the cable and replace the cable, autozone has many options for you with cable replacements.

If in fact you battery terminals are corroded and they can easily be replaced on hondas i believe you just have to cut the cable right next to terminal and replace them with new ones this is also very simple and cheap (2.49 ) per terminal at autozone.

all you do to replace them is cut the old one off the new ones you will just bolt a metal plate over the wire

If its the battery post just go buy a battery cleaning brush cheap to and clean the post and the terminals and you will be ok. May i also suggest that you put felt washers and battery terminal grease to prevent re corrosion of the above items.

also clean the post terminals and it should start you just don't have a good electrical contact

Hey if it helps how about a 4 thumbs up thanks

MY BATTERY LIGHT COMES ON. HOW DO I KNOW IF THE BATTERY IS BAD OR THE ALTERNATOR?


If you can start the car there's an easy way to tell. Before you start the car loosen the positive battery cable to the point that you can easily remove it but it is till in solid contact with the battery post.
Start the car then remove the loosened battery cable. If the car keeps running your alternator is working but if the idle drops or the engine stops then your alternator is not putting out enough power to run the engine and needs to be replaced.
Either way, loosely replace the battery cable so you don't lose stereo presets, etc then turn off the car and tighten the battery cable and replace whichever component needs replaced, battery or alternator.
Also take a moment to inspect the battery posts and cable terminals and clean if necessary.

Replacing all this you surely set the alarm off. Turn the car on, don't start . let sit for ten minutes, turn off, don't remove the key. do this three times. after the third time you turn it off, if it was the security, then the car should start. Let me know And we can go fdrom there.

What is the best replacement battery for a 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L?


I really prefer interstate batteries, they last the longest. Costco has great prices on their batteries. I have witnessed problems with Die Easy batteries, although you can get service pretty easily.

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!
