Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers

My car has some power but wont turn over. The auto key entery is slow, everything lights up on the dash but flashes and has shown service 4x4 and transmission fluid hot messages. I popped the hood and the negative terminal is cracked. Could replacing the terminal fix this problem or is this a kiss of death for my jeep? I'm going to fix the terminal tomorrow to see if that works but any other tips would be very appreciated!!

I'm not sure of the voltage I dont have a way to check it? BUT I was at autozone and had it and the alternator checked about two weeks ago and the were both in good shape
