2011 Ford Explorer sport with 22,000 miles and battery cable corrosion replacement cost me $$$$$
Stranded and wrecker called to deliver our 2011 Ford Explorer Sport to the Ford
dealer. Corrosion at the battery under the little red enclosure with the battery
cables and electrical cables. The dealer replaced the entire harness to the tune
of $850.00 Could the cable have just been repaired with a new ring that was
eaten up with the corrosion, instead of this extensive repair?
I met my 2013 Ford Explorer sport with 22,000 miles
All depends on how far into,the cables the corrosion was, it is was more than 2 or 3 inches then the cables would have to have been replaced just cases there is not enough cable to pull up to cut the bad wiring out and resoldered on a new cable end. Plus the fact that you went to a dealer so they stick with OEM parts and rule out aftermarket totally. With today's high output charging systems corrosion is a big problem, everyone that has corrosion troubles I have always told them get sealed or gel batteries, that elemanates corrosion from battery out gassing.
