Default Battery Cables

I pulled the battery cables off the Bonne and wow the positive looks worse than crap. I think I can save the negative but I haven't crawled under to check the block end yet.

GMPD'* catalogue is down, anyone got part#'* or another source?
I did try Napa Online but the pics they show are just plain wrong.

Thanks,
Tim

Take a trip out to a dealer and get all three part numbers. Then order all three. Trust me on this one.

Original parts numbers show for positive cable with supercharger - 12157277, and negative 12157110 (96-99).

Shouldn't there be two positive cables? One to the maxifuse center & alt and the other to the starter? or is what I have aftermarket already? LOL

There was only one part number listed for the "positive cable". Whether or not that will contain both parts of the cabling, I don't know.

IIRC mine came from a dealer and were seperate parts numbers. I'd call a local dealer.

I bought brand new cables for my SSEi right before I left.

There are 2 positive cables; one is deciated to the alternator. The second one runs the starter and power distrubition I don't have the part #'*, but I paid ~$140 from GMPD for all 3
