Have battery and alternator checked. Also tighten and clean all battery connections. The negative connections on the frame and motor too.

Sorry to piggy back,but I've been told by the GM dealer that they no longer make the cables that go from the battery to the engine compartment and they couldn't help me. I know the battery is in the trunk,so if I get the part, how does the cable run from trunk to under the hood? Thanks.
