Car Battery Terminal Ends Replacement Service

What are the Battery Terminal Ends & What Do They Do?

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.

Common Symptoms of Bad Battery Terminal Ends

Some common symptoms that indicate a battery terminal end replacement is needed include::

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

How Important is a Battery Terminal Ends Replacement?

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.

How It's Done at YourMechanic:

When choosing YourMechanic, you can get an inspection and replacement without having to go anywhere, plus it costs less than a traditional auto body shop or dealership!

A mobile mechanic from YourMechanic will come to you at your convenience and follow these general steps:

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

Causes of Faulty Battery Terminal Ends

Car battery terminal ends can go bad due to various reasons, including:

  • Corrosion Buildup
  • Exposure to moisture and road salt
  • Loose connections
  • Old battery terminal ends

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.

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.
