I have a 00 dodge durango. I replaced on battery cable connector because the car wasnt getting a good connection. Started right up. Then I decided to replace the other (red) one because it got stripped trying to clean it off other day. Well I replaced it and now the car wont start. Does any one know what could be happening. Also I drove it and the positive cable kept coming off that is another reason I changed it. It tries to start but cant. Please help

Have you tried holding the gas pedal down 1/4"? Try that first to see if it runs.

HOW MANY CABLES (WIRES) WENT TO EACH CONNECTOR?

IS IT POSSIBLE YOU LET ONE DROP AND FORGOT ABOUT IT?

IF THIS IS A TOP POST SET-UP AND YOUR CABLES ARE SORTA LOOSE IN THE LEAD CLAMP---REMOVE THE "CABLE SQUEEZER" PORTION AND FLIP IT UPSIDE DOWN ("V" PART IS NOW DOWN). THEN REPLACE THE TWO BOLTS AND CRANK 'EM DOWN

KEEP US POSTED
