Cut off old terminal. Cut back insulation and check for discoloring or corrosion.
If corroded, clean with baking soda /water solution.
If discolored (burnt), cut back until you find shiny copper. If it's too far back, replace entire cable.
If not discoloring or corrosion, the cheapest solution is to go to any auto parts store or even auto section in wal mart and buy the type that uses two bolts to clamp down over new cable.
The BEST way would be to crimp a heavy duty terminal on there, and then shrink-wrap it to protect against the elements. However the tools could be expensive unless you can borrow.

Hi. This sounds like your "Neutral Safety switch". It's designed so that you don't start your car in gear in drive and accidentally crash.
Here is the part at autozone.
... These are in the shifter on most cars, but sometimes they are hidden on top of the transmission. I'm sorry, I don't have a book on your exact model.
Hope that helps.

Testimonial: "Great! Now I just have to find one. In my searches, nothing looks the same. It has a hood? With the underpart that grabs onto the post."
It is important that battery connections are good and tight. If your cable is damaged, it is best to get a new one along with the terminal connections and is not expensive. It's pretty easy to see how the connections are made, but if you're unsure, just consult a parts store rep. They're usually pretty happy to lend assistance. Replacement time is probably about 10 minutes. Be sure the battery is completely disconnected before replacing any cables.
