The wiring in the car is OLD. I should replace the wiring harness but I am really torn between a relatively cheap harness using modern wire and a really, really expensive harness using modern wire covered with woven fabric just like the original. So in the meantime to avoid a fire I disconnect the battery every time I park the car. The routine gets old. Park, pop the hood, wiggle the ground strap off. Worse yet I since the clamp on the terminal is not very tight I often have problems with a poor connection and terminal corrosion.
