Car Battery Cable Replacement Service

What is the Battery Cable all about?

Battery cables transfer the current from the battery to other electrical components (starter, alternator, fuse block). Without battery cables, there will be no electrical power in any part of your car. The cables are located under the hood and are attached to the battery on one end and the engine and electrical accessories on the other. All cars have multiple cables. These cables can become corroded and cause bad connections, which will not allow the right amount of current to be transferred to the electrical components in the car.

Keep in mind:

In most cases, battery cables cannot be repaired and must be replaced as an assembly. But in some cases, your mechanic may be able to cut the corroded part of the cable and install a terminal end. By doing this, you can avoid replacing the cable assembly.

How it's done:

  • Perform a voltage drop test.
  • Remove and replace cables if voltage drop is more than 0.1 volt.
  • Clean cables.
  • Inspect charging system.
  • Perform a starter draw test.
  • Test for proper voltage output from alternator.

Our recommendation:

Corrosion is the battery cable’s worst enemy. If you open the hood of your car, you may find a white or bluish powdery substance (dried acid) on the battery and cables. This acidic substance will corrode the battery terminal ends and the battery cable. It is a good practice to have the battery and cables checked and cleaned at regular intervals (we recommend every other oil change). This will prevent the corrosion from building up and it will extend the life of the battery cables.

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

  • Car does not start.
  • Clicking noise when starting the car.
  • Electrical components (e.g. lights, radio, horn) may not work.

How important is this service?

Battery cables transfer currency from the battery to the electrical components of the vehicle. Without functioning battery cables, the battery has no way of outputting energy. The alternator and starter rely on battery cables for power, so malfunctioning cables mean that your vehicle won’t start up or have any electrical energy.

Graham found the problem we had with our car and was resolved quickly and professionally. I will recommend to friends and family
Chevrolet Corvette - Battery Cable Replacement (Positive, Negative) - Streamwood, Illinois
Graham arrived on time Sunday morning. Didn't need to install new battery cables. Explained to me that cables were fine, just required a good cleaning around the terminals. Suggested that I use a cable cleaner and sealer to keep cables clean. Installed new battery, car started on first attempt. Graham was friendly & professional. Will use his services again when needed.

Chrysler PT Cruiser - Battery Cable Replacement (Positive, Negative) - Phoenix, Arizona
Peter arrived early and quickly realized my Brakes were good and did not need replacing. He was efficient in resolving all the issues I had him booked for. He identified a new issue and gave me a good recommendation to fix it. Peter is always looking out to save me money, time and keep me and my car safe. The dealership quoted me over $600 to do just one of the jobs that Peter managed for less than $400. I would highly recommend his services. Just don't book him, when I need him. :)
Pontiac Grand Prix - Battery Cable Replacement (Positive, Negative) - Phoenix, Arizona
Peter is my hero. He showed up at 12:00 the appointment was not until 1:30 a whole hour and thirty minutes before he had to be here,,, Who does that now a days? He knocked on my door and when I opened the door he had the brightest friendliest smile that once again put me at ease and knew it would all be all right. Peter was flawless and so profesional I will always recommend his service. I could not be more happy today MY MECHANIC is a company that has my loyalty they took care of us as promised and are also trustworthy. I did nothing special but talk to their people and right away they kept to everything they told me they would do, if that was to give us a call back to let us know we were not forgotten. Thank you and I will be singing your praises. And Peter a Special Thank you for being yourself I know who to call from now on. You guys have made me feel not everyone is out there to rip you off and some company's and their employee's are worth an excellent review.
