Should I Replace My Battery Cable?

While there are multiple battery cables under the hood, damage to even one of them will affect the smooth flow of current through the others, potentially causing expensive issues with the connected components themselves. If you suspect your battery cable might be damaged or dislodged, the best course of action is to verify that the cable is the culprit for your vehicle's electrical issues. Savvy car owners may be able to diagnose the problem, but the safest way to be sure is to contact Wrench to book an appointment.
