The negative cable has an additional wire going into the alternator, my new cable doesn't have that connector cable, what do I do.
Do you

TRADE TROUBLESOME JEEP STATION WAGON IN ON A WRANGLER

NEVER EVEN THINK ABOUT THAT PESKY CABLE AGAIN

"WRANGLER" A NAME THAT WOULD FIT IN BETTER WITH YOUR USERNAME

PEOPLE WOULD THEN PRAISE YOU

I WOULD TOO, ONCE YOU SENT US A PIC OF YOUR NEW "REAL" JEEP

YOU WOULD BE SO HAPPY!

YOU WOULD MOST LIKELY THANK ME DAILY, IN THE REPLY BLOCK, BY ADDING PRAISES TO ME, FOR CHIMING IN WITH THIS SPECIAL ANSWER (THE OTHER GUY'S NEVER EVEN THOUGHT OF)

I DO TRY TO COME ACROSS IN MEEK WAY

WELL.A BETTER RUNNING ONE, WOULD MAKE A BETTER TRADE!

YOU FELLERS SEEMED TO HAVE THAT PART UNDER CONTROL!

MY SUGGESTION WOULD HAVE REQUIRED A TERMINAL RING ON THE BATTERY CLAMP BOLT AND A PIG TAIL CONNECTING BACK TO THE ALTERNATOR (WHEREVER IT WAS GROUNDED BEFORE) I HAVE ALL OF THAT STUFF ON HAND IN MY "STUFF" AS WELL AS CRIMPERS FOR THE "STAKEON RING"

SINCE YA'LLS' SUGGESTIONS SEEMED LESS COMPLICATED.I WAS JUST TRYING TO WIN ANOTHER ONE OVER TO "MY" TEAM!

BUT REMEMBER, A GOOD GROUND, IS A GOOD GROUND, WHETHER YOU MAKE IT OR BUY IT THAT WAY!

SORRY rodeochic48,

YOU HAVE THE "JEEP" PART RIGHT, BUT CAN IMPROVE NOW THAT YOU'RE IN THERE

LOOKS LIKE rodeochic48 MUST BE OUT LOOKING FOR ONE, JUST THE RIGHT COLOR. SINCE WE AIN'T HEARD NUTHIN' BACK

MAY HAVE FIGURED OUT WITH A "REAL JEEP", THERE JUST AIN'T MUCH FIXIN' THAT WE WOULD BE NEED TO ASSIST WITH.

MOST ALL OF YOU GIVE ME A HARD TIME, SOME MORE THAN OTHERS

I REALLY THINK YOU SCARED 'EM OFF WITH THE "BUY THING", AFTER THEY'D DONE BOUGHT SOMETHING!

I'LL KEEP WATCHIN' MY MAIL TO SEE IF THEY COME BACK WITH A PIC OF THE WRANGLER

Giving a hard time is called sharing the love. As far as buying something and having to return it to get the correct one I have done my fair share of that. For repairing my cars house etc so I doubt that scared anyone off thats part of life.

Saturntech9,

YOU KNOW WE LOVE YOU MAN!

I RECKON YOU'VE NOTICED MY ANSWERING IS LOOKIN' MORE AND MORE LIKE caradiodoc'S!

SOME FELLERS HERE JUST SORTA WRITE 'EM, SO A REPLY WILL SEEM UNNECESSARY

ME, BEFORE I WAS WELCOMED ABOARD ON THE NEW SITE, ANSWERED SOME 700 OR SO, JUST FOR "GIGGLES" AND WITHOUT A "TITLE", 'CEPT FOR "LIKES TO HELP" AND "HAS A WRENCH IN BOTH HANDS"

'COURSE I WAS SORTA LAID UP HERE ON THE RECLINER WITH A BIG OLE SCREW IN MY FOOT ALONG WITH OTHER COMPLICATIONS FOR A YEAR AND A HALF. HAD SEEN THESE COMPUTER THINGS USED BY THE WIFEY AND OTHERS, NEVER TOUCHED ONE MYSELF!

SO AS I GOT BETTER AT IT, I TRIED TO MAKE MY STUFF "INTERESTING" ALONG WITH "ANY GOOD INFO I COULD MUSTER" AND A TOUCH OF "RURAL". ESPECIALLY TO THE JEEP CJs. IN THE BEGINNING, I SELDOM GOT A REPLY. THAT MADE ME SAD :(

. LIKE NO ONE HEARD ME

. AS I LAY IN PAIN, WITH NOTHING ELSE TO DO.

SO REALLY EVEN WHEN I WAS "PROMOTED" WITHOUT EVEN ASKIN'. NOTHING ELSE REALLY MATTERS TO ME, 'CEPT SEEING A SMILE AND A HAPPY ENDING ON A POST. NOW SOME 2,700+ THUS FAR

EVEN THOUGH I CAN MOVE AROUND NOW, I STILL SIT HERE NIGHT AFTER NIGHT. WAITING, FOR EACH POST TO ANSWER
