F150 CHANGING BATTERY CABLES

1992 Ford F-150

Electrical problem
1992 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles

We bought this truck used about 5 years ago. We have only put about 500 miles on it. The engine is in great shape. About 3 months ago I replaced the starter. No problem. After driving it in the pouring rain the truck would not start the next day. I replaced the silonoid. It still would not start. To get the truck to start I have to have someone tug on the negative battery cable. So how do I change the battery cables? The negative cable is difficult to get to where it grounds?

It may be easier from underneath. Always remove the negative cable first, and install it last.
