Treeroot, I think i'm jinxed:eek:

Today as a leave the driveway the cruiser dies right out front suddenly.

WTF:confused: So I pop the hood and see a few sparks coming from the + battery cable that goes through the tub to the starter.

OH jeez:o. So the rubber grommet dry rotted then started rubbing through the insulation til wa-la, more battery grounding.

Crimeny:rant: I just can't win. Hopefully it didn't toast another battery :banghead:

A new grommet, electrical tape, and a shrink insulation fix was in order. Below was the temp fix but you can see where the cable grounded going through the tub support.

So for the rest of you.. check your cables! This year too ;)
