My car wont start and I was told by a mechanic that my car has weak electrical contact. He was looking at the distributor and the cables that go into the engine. How can I fix the poor electrical contact?
Depending on what is loose and where, the connector terminals may need to be replaced. Sometimes the whole connector may need to be replaced, depending on its condition.

Gladys- I would suggest a battery cleaning service as a possible cheaper solution. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the battery cables, which is quite a bit more expensive. The battery cleaning service might work if you see a lot of corrosion around where your cables connect to your battery, however, if that's not what is causing the issue, it might mean that you need to replace the entire cables. Good luck!
