Clean or replace the cable before you end up getting stranded; you have a bad connection. Mark

After removing the positive and negative cable, follow the negative cable to where it's grounded to the wheel well. Remove the end of the cable with the wrench.

Now, attach the new positive cable first and install the negative cable last and start the car to ensure that the connections are working on your Ford Escort.

If the engine turns over but will not start your battery cable is NOT the problem. Even if it stated after reattaching the cable. Something else was the problem.If the engine will not turn over then the cable might be your problem. If you took off the cable and then reattached it and then the engine turned over then your cable was not making a good connection with the battery terminal and by reattaching it you improved the connection.

1. Connect one end of the positive cable to the "dead" or low battery positive post. 2. Connect the opposite end of the positive cable to the positive post of the battery being used for jump starting. 3. Connect one end of the negative cable to the negative post of the battery being used to jump start. 4. Connect the opposite end of the negative cable to a good ground on the "disabled" vehicle. Start the "good" vehicle and allow the "dead" battery to charge for 3-5 minutes. Start the "disabled" vehicle. If it doesn't start, allow to charge longer, then re-try. After the "disabled" vehcile starts, remove the cables in reverse order of connecting.

1993 Acura Vigor It will not start when you turn the key you hear a click but it does not start this all started after you got your battery terminals cleaned and it cannot be jump started?

If a jump start will not start it then it is not the battery. You either have a short in the battery cable connection to the battery or the engine/starter or you have a bad starter. Test for a short in battery, battery Cables or connection. Trace where the positive battery cable connects to usually an electrical box on the inside of the engine compartment and put the positive jumper cable there while putting the negative jumper cable on a metal part of the engine (you are by-passing the battery and the battery cables completely). If it does not start now then you have a bad starter.
