2000 Dodge Dakota Battery Terminal Diagnosis and Repair

Got in the truck to go to work and didn’t have any power.
I checked the battery with a multi-meter and the battery was fully charged.
The terminals however were BOTH loose!
Even though they were both tightened as tight as they could go.

Instead of spending $35-$40 dollars and the big hassle of replacing the terminal cables, I decided to apply an Average Guy approach.

For just $6 I bought a thin brass sheet at ACE Hardware and cut two strips that would act as bushings around the battery terminals, adding a little more width and getting the terminals to grab the battery posts tighter.
