I've found that bad battery cables can cause belt squeal by having bad connections and drawing more from the alternator.

One day.....one day I'll get you to change them.

My alternator'* bearings have gotten significantly louder ever since I changed the belt tensioner. It can't be good if you can hear it all the way from Brookfield.

But, now that I have a real job with timely paychecks, I can catch up on all the maintenance I've missed, including battery cables and wheel hubs. I look forward to being able to start my car in ten degree weather without my sensors going haywire.
