A few weeks ago my car died when i was coming in from out of town, first time in two years that had ever happened. The power went out, i couldn't steer and I couldn't so much as use the remote to lock the car doors.
Anyway I took it in to have it looked at at the local dealership and they could not diagnose the problem. So I brought it home.
A few nights later when I was leaving work for lunch, the car died again, no power, was lucky to get it to the side of the road.
So, I take it back to the dealership, this time they say they need to replace the alternator
and battery and that gets done.
I have had the car for a couple days now and a couple times when I go to start it, it won't start, mind you, when it runs, it runs great now since the repair. However, if I miss with the batter cables that connect into the battery, suddenly their is power. Is this an easy fix? Should I replace the cables that connect to the battery??
