what the hell was GM thinking with this brainiac move? /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif my truck (a 97 yukon) doesnt like to start anymore because the positive battery connection is not solid enough to supply the power to the starter. i replaced the bolt, hoping that was the problem, but its still doing the same thing. (of course advanced auto didnt have that bolt, theyre too busy stocking the rice aisle). but i digress... anyway, i think the battery terminal may have gotten warped from a ghetto-rigged CB wiring job, and the added pressure of the crimp-on eye bolt doowhack (notice the technical language) that we used to connect the CB to the battery molded the lead terminal to compensate. now that the CB is wired not-so-ghetto-rigged, there is less contact area at the terminal. i need to fix this, im going - or planning on going /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif - on a road trip in a week. any suggestions? buying a new battery is out of the question - its a red top.
