Re: SEARS BATERY KEEPS DYING (mynameisphunk)

Don't forget the cables. If one of the battery or alternator cables is corroded (or worse, broken or intermittantly broken), your battery might not be properly recharging all of the time. In my Jetta, I didn't realize that one of the alternator cable terminals was bad until after replacing the alternator (d'oh!); the end attaching to the starter was loose within the terminal, although the terminal was tight to the starter and the terminal *looked* OK until you wiggled the wire while looking at it.
