        This was a great replacement for a 2005 Subaru WRX. The photo doesn't show, but the smaller wire for the ground/body next to the battery is also cast into the battery connection just like the stock set up.

                  Cable is about 6 inches too long and bolt hole had to be enlarged for factory bolt that holds to block. Not a big problem.

                  The cable is a generic cable for several different vehicles.My old cable had 3 ground leads coming off of it and this cable has only one.After modifying by adding 2 more grounds it works fine.

                    AC142/A2010436 is sold as "best fit" for the 2002 4 cylinder Camry. The problem is that the secondary wire is drastically shorter than the one on the cable that it is supposed to replace. The counter help suggests that I cut the old wire and crimp it to the new one. If I wanted to do that, I could have bought the three dollar universal clamp and crimped it to the old cable.

                        How do I install this on a 2000 Hyundai Sonata GLS? I know I connect one end to the battery and what about the other? The starter? If so, how does this connect to the starter?

                          Hi Josh, good question! This is a negative battery cable (Black). The starter grounds to the block and the negative battery cable connects to the block, not directly to the starter. Often times the negative cable connects to both the block and chassis, other times there is a separate ground cable from the block to the chassis. The positive cable (Red) connects to the starter relay.
