Hi,

I have a problem with the car starting.

The +ve junction in the engine compartment is getting hot and the contacts have become very corroded. The battery is going flat over night which would suggest some sort of shot

1st question is is the corrosion / poor contact on the leads going to be causing the heat.

If not anyone got any suggestions as to what to try.

Thanks in advance.

Matt

if they are badly corroded, like most electrical connections this will cause a high resistant joint and will get hot,

you can clean it up your self, take it apart and use like a brill pad with a bit of wd-40 sprayed on it and rub at the corrasion to clean it off

put it all back together,

Has the connection been touching any body work? bonnet?
