Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
I have to push the red connector down every time I need to start my car. Once the car is running its fine, it continues running. I tried to tighten it but it seems as tight as it can go. Does it need to be cleaned or can I wedge a piece of metal in between the connector and battery?
You can got to Autozone and get a new battery cable,they are 2.99 and the guys there will install for free.

Based off the fact that the car runs good when pushed I would say that you have a dead spot in the starter motor. These are typically swapped from the old motor onto the new motor so it is probably original. I've seen this quite a few times. If he installs a new starter motor the issue should be corrected. Based off what he already has invested in the car I would say it is certainly worth fixing. Hopefully he wont have any more problems after that. The starters typically run anywhere from $125-$175. I hope this helps your son.
