any one have a issue with the battery cables. i have been having issues when u get in the h3 my clock is at 12:00 and it was happening for 2 weeks or so and i checked the terminals and they where clean and i even tightened them down and still was doing it.so i decided to take it in being under warranty and when i went to leave it would not start so i poped the hood and when i removed the red protecter cap the alarm went off in my ear and power up.well in short i left it and they gave me a rental.well after 5 days they called and said gm called all over and no dealer has the cable.(its on piece cable and then it splits and runs to battery) so they said the part needs to be made and it will be atleast 2 weeks be4 they will send it out. so i am stuck in a 2009 chevy trail blazer which i hate. so i called and said can i get my h3 back untill the part comes being i only had it not start once and he said thats fine and he told me some 1 else just came in with the same problem and they were able to rig a clamp to keep the cable in place so they are doing that to mine and i can pick it up tommorrow. so hopefully i have no issues while i wait for this part to be made, any 1 else have his issue with the cable being bad that runs to the neg and pos

Don't overtighten an '06 battery terminal!! I just found out the hard way. After replacing battery the terminals wouldn't fit snug and flush to new battery under cover. I tightened them but got the same result. When I started to back off the nut, the nut nut broke off a piece of the cam-looking part of terminal that holds the 2 post couplings together. Luckily I was able to tigthen nut (with shreds of connector) to a point making good enough contact to start my Hummer. Had to strap down the battery cable to battery tray to ensure to doesn't move.
I could use the brand name and model of that clamp you got installed.
i had a probe with those "sheet metal" conn. the wire was clamped into it good so i snipped most of the metal away and hammered it flat, drilled a hole and bolted it to a brass conn from autozone. both sides of course.
9 years later when sold it was just fine.
abt 5 bucks
There's enough cable on the H3 for you to put new ends on w/o needing additional wiring... I used some more wire just for my dual battery setup (should be in one of my galleries) contact Brodie @ ridgedemon.com and he will get you better terminals at a better price than almost anyone out there... oh he's a H3 owner too
Nothing to see here, just a bone stock H3, move along please...
