Turn Key...and...Nothing! Loose battery connection
My ground battery cable has a loose connection around the battery terminal. The clamp is screwed in as tight as it can go, but I can still grab the clamp and slip it off of the battery post. This loose connection, now that cold weather has come into play, means that when I go out in the morning and turn they key, nothing happens. If I pop the hood, wiggle the ground clamp a little bit, and turn they key, it starts fine.
Has anyone else ever experienced this? Either the battery post shrinks or the clamp got bigger. I'm assuming the cold weather has caused some sort of material contraction and thus the weak connection...
Obviously, I just told you what the problem is...but I am curious if anyone has had this before and what you did to fix it...seems the stock battery clamps should be able to work...
