What does a battery cable do?

The battery cables are used to bring power from the battery to all the other electrical equipment in the car.

When should you consider having your car's battery cable replaced?

Over time, the condition of the battery leads can deteriorate. Usually the battery leads corrode, especially at the connectors to the battery. In other cases it might be that cracks appear in the cable's plastic coating due to being exposed to the high temperature fluctuations in the engine bay.

When the leads have corroded it will cause a bad connection in the electrical system. It is therefore important to replace the battery leads when they are damaged or corroded. The lead can, when it is damaged, not transfer the correct current to the other parts of the electrical system leading to a numerous other issues. Always service the battery cables as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.
