Best Practices

Be sure to use a replacement battery cable that is as thick or thicker than the original cable. The incorrect cable may be less expensive, but it can potentially cause problems with the electrical system. The thickness is referred to as "gauge."

Best Practices

The entire starting and charging system should be inspected before replacing the battery cables to eliminate other problems that may be affecting the system's performance.

Common Symptoms

If the battery cables are found to be corroded, they will need to be cleaned and possibly replaced along with the starter.

Common Misdiagnoses

Battery cables may need to be replaced if the starter has recently been replaced and is still not operating optimally.
