I replaced the battery terminal cable ends. Now the car will not start, There is a clicking noise from the starter.

Bad connection on cable ends or where they connect to battery. Quick check is if you have a good set of jumper cables, use the jumper cable as a replacement for what maybe the defective one. Hook negative cable good to battery neg. post and then put other side on neg cable to engine ground on block. See if it cranks, if it does than the trouble is on the neg. cable. If not then put positive cable on pos. post of battery. Then put other side of pos. cable on the starter post, try to start. If it cranks then the trouble is on the pos side of cable. Hope this helps.

How do i get my car to start after battery is low?

I recommend removing the battery and the battery box.Purchase a ground cable that will reach from your engine block to your battery. Attach your original ground cable to the engine block.. Attach the new ground cable to the engine block and then install battery clamp to your new cable...Reinstall battery box and battery reconnect pos. & neg. terminals

95 town car won't start

When the 1995 Towncar turns over but won't start or there is no spark you need to look to see if the O/D light is on once you turn the key on. If that light is on the Power control module has rec'd a code from the transmission that there is a O/D fault and the car won't start until that light is off. If you unhook your battery, red post first and neg next and wait at least 10 mins. and reattach the posts neg first and then the red post next the computer will reset and the light will turn off and the car will usually start. If not repeat the procedure. This is an O/D button or O/D switch problem when the light is on.

Ground wire from fire wall into negative battery cable attached to block. when wiggle car will get power. detached ground from neg cable reattached to behind neg cable. still not working what do i do?

First, be sure that there is a ground strap, cable or wire from three spots:
1. from neg. side of battery to block
2. from block to firewall
3. from firewall to battery

The above will give you a good ground. You might also want to add a ground from one of the above to the vehicle frame just to be sure.

1996 chevy lumina battery or alternator?

If you think its the battery, have a load test done to it, any repair shop can do that they can also chk. the alternator.If its the alt. he can do it but it would be best to have a little supervision because of the electrical connections. But first make sure the battery cables are clean and tight, Its possible thats all it is, unhook cables in this order neg. first than pos. mix some baking soda and water and clean the mating surface of each cable and battery surface but be carefull its highly carrosive or you can clean them with a wire brush, when clean reattach in this order pos. first than neg. If you need more help just ask. I got kids too.
