Default Re: Battery Disconect

Side post batteries are crap. The starting/charging ability is fine, it's getting power from and to the battery with the idiotic side posts that's the issue, as you're finding out.

Either the bolts are stripped and you can replace them for cheap or the side posts are stripped out and you have to replace the battery to fix it (unlike top posts where if the clamp stretch's or something you can stick anything metallic in there as a shim and fix it for nearly free).

As I found out with my dads '98 K1500 there's a 3rd option too...you're just simply not tightening the screw(s) enough.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
