Default Battery Cables

I was cruising home last night enjoying a nice ride warm temp, light traffic, and had the radio cranked. The song came to a quite section and I heard a loud ticking. Played with it for the 5 remaining minutes of the ride home and found that the ticking was in time with the RPMs and was coming from the speakers??? It went away when I hit the kill switch in the driveway.

So I checked my battery cables. Sure enough, they were loose (and had no dielectric grease on them). Greased them up and put everything back together. No more ticking. Wooo Hoooo.

If ever you have an electrical problem, start with the battery cables. It is amazing what symptoms a loose battery cable can cause.
