    Default 99 Sononma 2.2L Electrical issues

    Hey guys, I own a sonoma and it has been my daily driver for the past 10 years and at 244k miles, I have not had any problems. Just recently I started having issues getting her started and the problem has been intermitent. When I get into the truck, the dome light and my accessory lights all turn on, but as soon as I turn the key, there is a click (sounds like a starter with a dying battery) and I lose all lights. I have had issues recently and ended up pulling the battery to find my possitive terminal was coroded and it was affecting the connection. Now that that is fixed, the issue is still intermitent and the only way to get my truck started some days is to jiggle the battery until I hear my "Keys in ignition" bell, hop in the truck and she fires up strong like im used to er doin. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is becoming quite annoying. Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like you might need some new battery cables, they do go bad and especially with how many miles you have on your truck.
