will a loose battery connection drain my battery?
My car has been having battery problems lately. The car would struggle to pull juice to turn and start unless i had just driven it and the engine was still warm... but i came home late last night, went to bed, woke up this morning, and it did it again... so i was like, ok, this is getting out of hand, so i open up my hood, look, and my connections are loose... but here's the thing... i spent like 20 min trying to get it on tighter, but i think i need new terminal ends... i don't know how or why, but they won't tighten on anymore... so i took some screws, screwed them into the terminal joint between the end and the battery to tighten it... i then took my car to autozone to get them to do a battery test... they said the battery cell might be going to go soon. Well, either way, i just wanted to know if the loose terminals would drain my battery.... the autozone guy said MAYBE... but that's one op. i know there are some car guys out here... anyone?
