seems like the corrosion builds up within a week after cleaning, have replaced the cable end with aftermarket, but same problem. I just keep the positive cable as clean as possible, have used a number of anticorrosion products but nothing works very long.
My battery cables get a lot of corrosion on them. The positive cable gets the corrosion.

went out to my car, wouldn't start.Dead wouldn't show anything. Checked under the hood and noticed the cable cover was just laying there. Picked it up and the battery cable was corroded so bad that it had broke and dropped off. Strange thing was I just had it at the shop to replace the wiper motor 3 days earlier. My question is how much does a cable end cost and what could it mess up since this has happened and what could happen while I'm trying to replace it. I worry about messing up the computer on the car if this hasn't alredy happened. It is the positive cable.
