I had a 6 hours trip, when I got to my destination the car does not start anymore, I checked and i found that the battery cable connector was broken. This connector has like a fuse but it has no contact with the battery any more so I put a wire directly to the battery and the car was able to started again. However every time i pull the stick to D the car shut down immediately, I had to accelerate the car in order to keep it run, that way i was able to return home. I've been looking for that part in every auto part store but I cannot find it. I cut the plastic cover and connect the cable directly to the battery without that plastic part with the fuse. The car start but i cannot make it move until I accelerate. I tried some easy fix but still not solve the problem.
