Ok gang, the jeep wouldn't start yesterday morning. I got it jump started and off I went to work. I went out at lunch and messed with the battery cables and noticed my negative cable was a tad bit loose. I wiggled it, and then put the keys in the ignition and it started right up!
When I got home, I tried to tighten the bolt, and ended up destroying the terminal. I now have a small set of vise grips clamping the terminal together! (redneck-ish, I know)
There are 2 separate cables on the negative side that split from the battery terminal. One goes to the firewall, and the other to the engine block. I assume I need to replace the whole thing? I don't think I can replace just the terminal at the end. There isn't enough extra cable, unless I remove the cable from that factory flex hose???
My question is, does anyone know how much a negative battery cable cost?
