  • jharris280zx says:

    had some problems with my car starting this morning, i was suspicious of the wiring on the ignition coil because of previous problems with it, so i go to my local hardware store and picked up some terminals and connectors, i cut the wires down past the corrosion and connected some new wire. i also had some trouble with my lights and turn signals, i check my fuse box and sure enough 3 blown fuses. i checked all the fuses by the way. i do wish to know how to check for bad relays though. thanks. :)

  • BASSCHAMP101 says:

    Well I found your problem; it’s a 420a.

  • CUDDLES52 says:

    me to i also hate those type of battery terminals as well

  • miker648 says:

    Eric, I feel that you should have replaced the battery terminals with “Military Style Terminals”, and crimped and soldered new copper ends on the wires.

  • ChiIdKiIIer says:

    they come loose so you can tighten them up i guess….

  • ChiIdKiIIer says:

    i think that one of my terminals are dirty as hell? someone please reply… i turned off my car and when i wanted to lock all doors i couldn’t hear the “click” thing and the doors didn’t lock so the car was basically “Dead” and it was running because of the alternator… what i did was to move the battery terminals and then i had power again… is this a sign of a bad battery connection? i polished the terminals but not the cable that connects to the terminal of the battery.
