Do car batteries come with different terminal sizes (positive terminal)?
I just replaced a battery on my 2010 Hyundai Sonata. I believe the new positive terminal is smaller than the old one because I tightened the clamp as much as possible and the clamp still slides on the post. Is there a simple fix that a mom with limited tools can do?
...okay, in my experience the +RED was the large size and the -Black the negative....maybe it's different with a chinese car~ follow the color~
Yes,they make different size posts. They sold you the wrong battery.
I wouldn't advise it but you can take a small screw and put between the battery and the post and tighten it up but I would get the right battery.
courtesy of wikipedia~ In DC circuits, the positive pole is usually marked red (or "+") and the negative pole is usually marked black (or "−"), but other color schemes are sometimes used in automotive and telecommunications systems. On a car battery, the positive pole usually has a larger diameter than the negative pole.
a four dollar electrical tester will tell all~!
these things are standardized...thank heaven that you couldn't put it back on....it saved your neck~
