Cables in good condition? No corrosion under the insulation?

Does it crank or is it dead silent?

What's the word/part concerning the battery I'm looking for? Even if "it" is a single turn too loose, this can happen...

I think Sal is talking about the bolt being to long and not tightening the cable, in which case you install a washer to keep the bolt from bottoming out.

Maybe there's an aftermarket alarm. Check my thread about my 95 Eldo. Mine had a small re-set button under the dash. I removed all the aftermarket alarm stuff, and the car starts, and runs fine!
