Negative battery cable 2004 Pontiac Sunfire

Asked by Guru15MT4 Aug 24, 2019 at 04:39 PM about the 2004 Pontiac Sunfire

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm having an electrical issue where my gauges zero out, radio stops
working, lights go dim, a/c weakens when I apply brake or use something
electrical. I looked at neg battery cable and in the middle, I see exposed
wire. I'm not sure if this is the problem. Somehow the part of the tray rusted
off and is taped to the wire? Can someone see the photo I included and tell
me if what is seen is normal or not? Could this be my problem? Could
someone also tell me my it is taped to the corrugated hose?

1 Answer


looks like the wire is corroded and causing resistance. it can not carry all amps that you are trying to use.
