The cable in question is the ground side, (ground cable) and the battery cables are dealer only items and may be little expensive. The name of the cable is"negative cable assembly"
can you check the ground before you but that cable assembly?
If you have a digital multimeter:
Set the multimeter to a maximum of 1V connect the black lead to battery negative.
Connect the red lead of the digital multimeter to the ground( where it is clamp to the car)
cranck the engine and no more than 500 mV should be seen.
Let the engine run at idle or 2500 rpm and no more than 100mV should be seen.
If it is, replace that wire. If it not. The wire is good.
The reason I want you to test the ground before replacing the assembly because it may cost between $200 and $300. I want you save money. That is how much it cost where I'm living here.
Get back to me if the problem remain after you replace the cable assembly.
