...yes well the ground connection is NOT....disassemble the 1/0 black cable off the battery....the lug end and wirebrush it with a coarse and the place that it bolts to (chassis/ground)....look for the 1/0 cable going to the engine block usually located near the alternator~


thanks Judge_roy, I will try this, but first I will take the started out and see if is working

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

Batteries are made from tin/antimony alloy....NOT lead, so will only last you ....degrades ten percent per as to say that stops taking a charge ten percent per year~ five years is about all that you can expect before trouble with the alternator~

check the age of your battery by "knock-off labels on the top sticker" indicating the month/year of it's first charge~
