The important thing is that the cable connections are clean and tight. Many times aftermarket battery cables way not be the same color as the factory cable. I would not recommend using any type of shim as they just allow for room for corrosion to begin. If the cable ends can not be connected tightly to the battery you will have to then replace the cables or ends to make a proper repair.If you decide that you need to replace the terminal ends, do not use the emergency style ends. Use only solder on terminal ends or replace the entire cable as needed.</pCustomersays:11/4/12 8:52 PM
By 'terminal ends' do you mean the battery posts?

Sorry I took so long to respond. I could not access your message of 3:38PM. The system said that its payment processor could not verify my Visa details and so I didn't have enough credits to access your reply. I had to go through the process again. I didn't change anything that was already there from my first input, but second time around it asked for my address, which it didn't ask for first time. That seemed to work. So far, not a good experience.

terminal ends being the part that wraps around the post on your battery. The part that connects the cable to the battery post.</pCustomersays:12:00 PM
The comprehensive message I sent you yesterday has not only not been answered, it has disappeared! I'm sorry, but this system is simply not working.
