1998 Volkswagen Other Repair Question
HI IM DRIVING A GOLF3 AND THERES A SPARK COMING FROM THE BATTERY WHEN I PUT THE TERMINAL
Batteries give off explosive hydrogen gas. Sparks are not a good idea near any battery. Check the cable connections to be sure they're clean and tight. If in doubt, visit an auto parts store or your mechanic for advice.
