I need to replace my positive battery terminal... the thicker cable that goes down to the solenoid is corroded and I have to jiggle it sometimes to make the car start. It got annoying really fast.
I got a new positive cable and after I opened it up and looked at it, I saw that it has three wires and I'm not exactly sure where they go. Here's a picture.
I've read this up in the forum but am still drawing a blank. Obviously, the big red one goes to the solenoid at the bottom. I'm figuring the other red wire is the one that hooks up to the fuse box right next to the battery. I have no idea what to do with the small black cable, however. Is the thin, black cable for extra wires that people happen to hook up directly to the battery? At any rate, I suppose I could just leave it there and not do anything with it.
I just wanted to get some positive affirmation as to what I'm doing. Let me know if I got it right.
Any help is much appreciated.
