    Death of a star ter?

    A no-start issue has me wondering how does a starter act as it dies? Do they tend to go quickly or slowly? Does it somehow gain friction, or does it simply do nothing? Battery charger is telling me the battery is charged but everything else says otherwise... freakin mysterious pixies.

    Replacing my hood struts, and noticed my negative battery cable is really frayed at the terminal. As in "how the F did this happen?" frayed. Is a replacement really $600? Any other replacement options? Generics are $20, there should be some way to make them work... No operational problems...
