Rather unhelpfully the short, fat yellow cable (not the one to the starter motor but the other one) which comes off the positive battery terminal on my '96 1.8D has come adrift due to corrosion at the non battery end, resulting in nothing happening when the key is turned. It's not immediately obvious where this has broken off, is anyone able to help? A picture would be even more helpful. I have consulted the wiring diagram in the Haynes manual but I'm none the wiser...

Thanks

Service Box seems to have kicked me off for inactivity, haven't been on there for years. I've attached a couple of pics of the offending yellow cable. The black one on the left goes down to the starter motor. The short yellow one with the black casing goes I know not where, looks like there was some kind of connector on the end.

Thanks

I don't think I've explained myself very well, I'm fine with the crimping bit, I just have no idea what this wire was connected to. Inspection of the general area around the front N/S headlamp leaves me none the wiser- I can't see anything obvious. I was hoping someone might have a similar setup and might just be able to post a pic of where this yellow wire from the batter +ve goes to.

Thanks

My link to the service box battery page has expired ? that`s odd.

Anyway I think you will find that lead goes to the glow plug timer/relay box.
A green box with small leads,a multi plug as well as a main feed,located around the battery somewhere.
As said,solder on a new terminal,as long as its a good clean connection there wont be a problem.

I've finally found where the cable connects...the next problem seems to be that no motor factors seem to stock spade connectors for thick cable of such a large diameter (~5mm). So I think it's going to be some sort of bodge to get a good physical connection...don't want a positive cable breaking off and touching the bodywork!
