Car Battery Terminal Ends Replacement Service

What is the Battery Terminal Ends all about?

Your car’s battery plays a significant role during cranking and there must be a way to get electricity from the battery to the starter and spark plugs. This is done with battery cables; there are two that connect to the battery -- one to the positive terminal and one to the negative terminal. Battery terminal ends are nothing more than clamps. They connect the cables to the terminals and hold them there securely.

Over time, battery terminal ends will corrode, particularly if you don’t have regular maintenance performed on the battery. Both the terminals and ends should be cleaned regularly to remove corrosion and build up.

If a terminal end fails, the cable will come loose from the battery. This will result in no electricity during starting. If the car isn’t already running, it will not crank. If the terminal end fails while driving, the car will continue to operate, but it will not crank again after being turned off.

Keep in mind:

  • Battery terminal ends should be inspected during all regular maintenance services.
  • Battery terminal ends should be properly maintained to prolong their life and avoid issues with corrosion.

How it's done:

  • The battery is located. The battery terminal ends are verified that they need to be replaced. The battery terminals are disconnected.
  • The defective battery terminal ends are removed by cutting the cables or unbolting the connections.
  • The battery terminals are cleaned. The new battery terminal ends are installed onto the cables and reconnected to the battery.
  • The battery terminal ends are tightened to the battery and coated with a battery protection spray.
  • The vehicle is tested for proper operation of the battery terminal ends by starting engine.

Our recommendation:

Battery terminal ends are critical components of your vehicle's charging system. They ensure that the battery stays connected to the system, providing electricity for cranking and allowing the battery to recharge while the alternator is running. Over time, corrosion can eat into the metal, eventually compromising your battery terminal ends. Have your terminal ends professionally inspected and maintained at all regular service intervals.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Battery Terminal Ends?

  • Green or white corrosion around battery terminals
  • Battery light on in dashboard
  • Vehicle will not crank

How important is this service?

Without a constant connection to the battery, your car will not crank. It won’t stop the engine from running, but it will prevent it from cranking after being turned off. Have your battery and battery cables maintained at all times, and the terminal ends replaced if damage is noticed.

Audi S4 V8-4.2L - Car Battery Terminal Ends Replacement - Phoenix, Arizona
Diego is awesome...showed up on time (actually a bit early), was finished ahead of schedule, super friendly, explained everything. I feel like I found "my guy" that I can trust with my car. You hope you don't see your mechanic very often because it means something is wrong with your car but with Diego and YourMechanic, I strangely look forward to it. Fair pricing, easy scheduling, and super convenient. I hope I can get access to YourMechanic in our other home in MN. Thanks, Diego!

Audi TT Quattro L4-1.8L Turbo - Inspection / Diagnostics - Dallas, Texas
Mike was very professional and was knowledgeable about VW/AUDI. I have nothing but compliments regarding the mechanic as he was knowledgeable, professional and likable. My only complaint is that the mechanic did not have access to the tools needed to fix the problem. YourMechanic advertises "Audi service by top rated Audi mechanics at the convenience of your home or office" so I assumed they would be equipped with the ECU tool as that is used to troubleshoot and manage the multiple systems that make up the car. The mechanic confirmed the diagnosis (Steering needing calibrated) by looking up the same code that I looked up when reporting the issue. He did offer insight as to the probable cause which was the recent replacement of the ABS/ESP controller requiring the steering be calibrated. Your Mechanic's recommendation was to take it to an Audi dealer. I'll end up at Kwik Kar or one of the independent VW/Audi shops that have the necessary VCDS tool. Summary: Knowledgeable mechanic explained why the warning light was on but was not equipped with the necessary tools to fix it. I can see using YourMechanic for items like fluid changes and brake pad replacement but can not see using them for anything requiring troubleshooting as so much requires the mechanic to interface with the ECU and connected subsystems.

Took all the safety precautions before starting the work. Rodric replaced a bad fuel pump in my 2001 Audi A6 4.2 v8 in about an hour which is accurate. Very knowledgeable when explaining what he was doing.
