89 k5 fullsize, 350, 700r4,...
Last night the battery would not turn the starter motor and the voltage
went to 6 or 7 volts on start attempt. I presumed the starter solinoid
ccontacts or the grounds were bad, or a short through a cable or wire could
be at fault. Contacts fine.Got jump in parking lot and watched the terminal
lug on the positive side MELT. I put the cable wires between the post inside
the lug. No problems since. Not even warm. I am curious if this has happened
to anyone else and if it may be a phantom problem elsewhere. The charging
voltage has been 13.5 - .7 . I had the battery tested friday and it's OK. I
have never seen such resistance on a battery cable. The lug had a bolt down
steel plate to the lead lug. It was installed last summer.
I hope no one else had such a monday and all are well. .............My
third degree burn will heal.......
