Posted by Evan350 on February 22, 2003 at 09:43:02 from (24.161.116.29):

I have a tb045 Takeuchi excavator I got used recently. A number of times I called on it in cold weather, it started without incident. Then one day after a normal glow plug warm up and starting to crank--suddenly nothing. All electricals died simultaneously and totally. After charging the battery and still getting nothing, I assumed I had a bad battery. I go and get a new battery from Interstate, install it, turn key on, and the normal beep is a sputter, no glow plug indicator, and what tiny sign of life disappears when I turn the key to start. Hmmm. Could one of the battery cables have gone bad? I cleaned the battery clamps before putting them on the new battery, and after seeing how dead it was after that, I also disconnected and cleaned the opposite end of both battery cables (the - cable is about 18" long and bolts to the frame, the + cable is about 4' long and goes to a terminal on the starter solenoid). The cables physically look fine and there was no corrosion visible at all on the original battery. Unless someone has another suggestion, my next step will be to remove the cables and figure out some way to test their impedance.
