Kipp here's the thread with a more detailed write-up on it.

Kipp go to car audio shops. you can get terminals and wire there. some sell by the foot, but not all do (like best buy). they are easy to replace. you just need the terminals and some ring terminals that fit. trace the wires from the battery to the other end. neg to block, neg to chasis, pos to alt.

Bradical I see. Well I'll go back out tomorrow and try to see if I can't get it to go (I got the dashboard to light up for a second so I know there's SOME power getting through) but if that doesn't work I'll look around auto parts shops around here for new cables. Too bad I don't know how to put them on myself and can't get to a shop without a tow :x

Thanks for your help!

Kipp depends where you get the wire and terminals from. i did mine while working at a shop so i got my parts for free. i would think with both new terminals and wires $30 - $50 depending on brand and all.

Bradical How much do you think that would cost me?

Kipp that is def a possibility to be too short. what i might recommend if they are too short is to do the "big 3" upgrade. get some aftermarket power wiring 4 guage or bigger and replace the stock cables with that.

Bradical Wow I didn't know those existed. Only problem is length. I still feel like they probably wouldn't both go in because of their length.

Kipp look for some aftermarket terminals with multiple inputs like this one.
