Here's the deal.... I hear all the time about the Sammy's weak wiring. One of the most common things to do is to replace some wiring to prevent the "Clicky Starter Syndrome".
What exactly is replaced? I've installed stereos for years, and know that your ground wire should be of equal gauge to your power wire for the best possible flow.
Well, every couple of months my rig won't start, because the positive battery terminal gets so insanely built up with corrosion. I take apart the terminal, wire brush it all clean, and everything is good as new.
Last time it happened, I thought of the Sammy starter problem, and took a look at my main ground wire. Kinda skimpy, since I have upgraded both battery terminals (Huge lead marine blocks) to accomodate the main power, an alarm, my amp power, and my 150w KC Daylighters.
Since I now have a whole lot more wire coming off the the battery, should I not replace the main ground to a much larger gauge of wire? Would this be the only one I would need to look at replacing? Looks like it grounds itself on the tranny.... Do you guys think it would help with my excessive corrosion problem?
