always the 1/0 battery cable seems to be corroded at the point where it attaches to the fender/ground spot...what you must do is take the bolt off and wirebrush the lug till shiny and the chassis as well...put 'em together for a 300 amp cold cranking ground potential~...also the ECU, sensors such as the heated 02 sensor will be able to read correctly....relays will function properly with full 12 volts instead of 10.5 and fuel pumps will turn properly again....high voltage 30,000 volts will not be droppin' down to 20,000...a healthy electrical system starts with point 1 the main ground connection~
