    Battery Cable

    Battery Cable Operation:

    Large strands of wire housed in a protective insulated covering that carry current to the positive side of the vehicles electrical system and provides a ground on the negative side of the electrical system to complete the voltage circuit. The wire strands are usually made of copper and have eyelets or top post/side post battery terminals attached. A web or woven type cable is also available but has no protective insulating cover and is usually used as a ground cable.

    How To Instructions:

    Inspect - Check for obvious problems.
    Service - Do the jobs that fix your car.
    Replace - Out with the old, in with the new.
