2003 Ford Explorer XLT.

Asked by ablebeets1985 Oct 28, 2020 at 10:39 PM about the 2003 Ford Explorer XLT V6 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi everyone, having trouble finding specific replacement battery cables,
apparently ford no longer makes this type of battery cables for a 2003 Ford
Explorer XLT . Any advice. I'm trying to shop around and find the cables, using
my VIN, and I'm having no luck.

Generic battery cables should work without an issue.


Yep that happens a lot, you just have to get creative, I’ve had to make cables for some vehicles that no one picked up aftermarket.


Simple to make but be sure to use the proper gauge wire, make a solid crimp connection and spray some corrosion protectant on the battery post when the connection is complete.
