I have a 2015 Honda Fit. I purchased it in December 2014. It currently has 60,000 miles on it as I do a lot of traveling out of town. Friday morning my car was running fine. Parked it at home and went back out a hour later and the car was dead. Checked the battery and the positive terminal had corrosion. Cleaned it up and still nothing. Decided the get a new positive post for the cable because it looked worn. Put it on and the car came on after a few tries. (Its a push button vehicle). The car drove fine for a day and the next day it was dead again. No power at all. Removed the negative battery cable from the terminal and gently placed it on the battery post and noticed it making the fizzing noise when you rub the post on the terminal, but it didnt make that noise all the time. So Im just trying to figure out if I need a whole new negative terminal cable, or what? A friend said it could be the starter too, the car would make a grinding noise every now and then when it would turn on. When I rub the post on the terminal, there would be a connection and sometimes there wouldn’t be. Any ideas would be much appreciated thank you
