    2000 aters Positive battery cable

    Is there anywhere that sells the positive battery cable? I ordered one on e-bay and it is just a standard cable. I have the alternator out and since reading on this forum while I have it apart might as well change the cable too. If I cant find any I guess I will just put the new alt. in and see how it goes.

    The alternator was only putting out 11 volts. I have read on this forum that the positive cable can cause the same problem. So while I have it all apart I thought I would do both at the same time. I just can't find one anywhere.

    Just an update, alternator changed and that problem has been fixed. Now I am changing the crankshaft position switch!

    Did you finally replace the positive cable? The ground?
