Battery cable corrosion at positive side at starter, and negative cable ends on chassis ... car was laid up for a year. starter on lincoln is a pain to service... but that is Ford for you... they give you no direction in the fuse box...
2001 Lincoln TC wont start in the last 2 years I have replaced the battery 5 times and alternator 2 times. after each battery replacement car will start for a couple of weeks then just stops starting. Taking to Lincoln service center on Wednesday hoping they can help.
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.
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.
