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.

Mini Cooper L4-1.6L - Engine or Transmission Mount Replacement - Mountain View, California
It's my first time to use Mechanic, I like this model personally, but honestly, I did't like my first experience when I booked the service online, but the service from Honorio saved my opinions on Your Machanic. Honorio is a VERY professional mechanic, he is VERY nice and patient. He came to my hose on time, and he helped me understand what my mini's real problem is and explained to me how a car engine actually works inside. I booked a service of replacing engine mount on line, after the replacement, Honorio showed me exactly the difference between a bad engine mount and a good engine mount. You can not only get a good service from Honorio but also get a good knowledge about your car from him or even some potential issues of your car. I would recommend Honorio as your mechanic.

Mini Cooper L4-1.6L - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey
Luis showed up promptly to the dealership and did a series of assessments on a vehicle I was planning to purchase. His competence and professionalism made the buying process a breeze for me. I’d recommend him to anyone who wants a pre-purchasing car inspection from a mechanic who is willing to provide excellent work, nothing less!
