Poor starting and terrible lights a tip for you

Just thought i would post this in case anyone else is having the same sort of problems, the light on my car just lately have seemed very poor and coupled to that the car would not always start easily and sometimes gave the symptom of a flat battery! anyhow after fitting two new rear sections of exhaust i thought i would have a look in the battery compartment and i found the middle cable the main one on the positive battery lead was loose the nut had started to work itself loose, so off with the terminals clean them up, add a new washer tighten everything back up and hey presto the lights are brighter and she starts cleanly again ! it's worth a check before that sort of problem catches you out especially with all of the bumps and pot holes that we have everywhere at the moment.
