SOURCE: changing positive post terminal battery cable

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.

SOURCE: I have 2002 Hyundai XG350L the car will not start

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.

SOURCE: how do i change the positive battery terminal cable only because it is slightly melted and car won't start?

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.

On the starter For a Hyundai accent which terminal should I connect the red battery cable

Good question, because connecting it the wrong way can damage the starter, the battery, or both! The red cable connector clamps to the positive terminal, and the black cable clamps to the negative terminal. On a new battery, it is often easy to tell which is positive by their markings (+) = positive and (-) is negative. In reality, the markings may be difficult to see. The red or positive post is larger in diameter. The black or negative post is a ground so you can follow it from the post to somewhere solid on the metal frame of the car.

Note the cross on the top of the battery post.

According to :

"...the battery case will have a + near the positive or a - near the negative terminal. If these don't exist then the positive post will have a larger diameter post than the ground post, this is if the battery is a top post.

If it's a side terminal battery which GM cars used for a while it should be marked on the top of the battery or on the front with its respective sign. Otherwise you can look at the cable that's connected to it which are usually color coded. Red is positive and black is negative."

How do I change the negative battery cable in a 2002 sante fe

They sell a variety of replacement clamps or terminals, unbolt it,cut it off, expose a 1/2" or so wire and connect it to the replacement terminal, and install back to battery. Like 5 bucks and a couple tools.

Whenever i start my hyundai xg350L it makes a clicking noise, and won't start. i have to get a jump every time i go to start my car. can you tell me what might be the problem?

battery terminals may be dirty or loose, or battery may be a bit low. first clean and tighten terminals. If this doesn't work, you may have a failing alternator. If you have a voltmeter or there is one in the car, jump start the car, remove the jumper cables and check the voltage at the battery. If it is less than 14 volts, replace the alternator. let me know if you have any questions.

Fuse box layout

First of all, Hyundai did not produce the XG350 until 2002. You wrote 2001 Hyundai XG350L. The engine in the 2001 is 3.0 (XG300). Cant help you.
