Re: Green fluffy battery cable!HELP!
Sounds like you have a bad problem with copper corrosion (maybe due to
electrolyte leaking from the battery, but more likely just regular
(bad though) copper corrosion - humidity and electrical current).
My advice would be to go to an electrical supplier and by "Superflex
Welding Cable" of at least AWG #2 (or larger) size. It normally has
silicon or EPDM rubber insulation and should prevent this from
happening again (even if you haave waterleakages). Run the cable all
the way to the engine bay or (easier) splice it with a proper device
(insulated H- or C-tap) to where the old cable is good and unaffected
