KIA SPECTRA BATTERY PROBLEM

2004 Kia Spectra • 170,000 miles

Besides the obvious issue of not always having battery connection. Could driving around with loose battery terminals cause any electrical problems or any other kinds of problems?

Of course it could. The battery is the key component in helping the voltage regulator maintain proper system voltage. Without the battery it is real likely the system voltage will go way too high and destroy everything that is turned on including numerous computers. At the very least the computers will do weird things. They are very intolerant of incorrect voltages.
