Upgrade the damaged or corroded Battery Cables in your 1998.5-2002 Dodge 5.9L Diesel with new cables. It is a good practice to inspect your cables occasionally for any signs of damage or excessive corrosion. As the metal ages and after numerous battery replacements, the terminals can also soften up over time and begin to develop cracks. While battery cables serve a very simple purpose, they are a very important component of your vehicles electrical system. The battery cables transfer power from the battery to the entire electrical system. Starting a truck takes a considerable amount of cranking power. Any damage or wear to the battery cables can reduce their ability to conduct full power. Starting issues or no electrical power are common symptoms associated with bad or failing battery cables. If the cables become split or corroded and do not make a good connection with the battery, then the vehicle might not receive power.
