I was coming home the other night and the car died. It died like someone opened the hood and physically removed the battery. I was just turning into my apartment and still rolling.
I guess it could not have happened anywhere better
Maybe the hobby shop?
Any way’*, mine looked like azz...big-time!
As a side note, there are three (3) cables all together that connect to the positive terminal. They are 1. Starter (biggest cable) 2. Power distribution and 3. Alternator The Starter and Alternator cables and bound together in one connector while the power distribution is by itself. This answers the question that if the alt is good, why does the car die if the terminal is loose or corroded but the car is running when it happens, such as my case.
Anywho, here are some before and after pics:
Boosty, please don't shhot me..............
Took a wire brush to the connectors and a wirewheel to the lugs......
The negative cable and boot were in very nice shape, but I wire brushed it anyway'*. This was VERY simple to do and if I did not BS with everyone in the shop, under 15 mins of work
