wont affect alternator voltage, but will make a difference. I tried for 30 minutes tryin to jump start my truck this morning at 5:30 when it was like 35 degrees out and never got it started...even with starting fluid. i kept messing with the hot cable and found one that was barely loose and i squeezed a vise grip on it as tight as i could and when i turned the key it fired right up. if you dont have a good connection on both batteries and a good ground, the engine will not crank fast enough to fire. I picked up a new positive cable yesterday (saturday) from the local dealership for $75 with my discount. im not sure what they list for though. it took me about 30 minutes and i had it on. no more slow cranking, the engine spins over like its a brand new truck now. Im not saying that you need a new hot cable, but make sure all your connections are clean. the factory cable end on the pass side battery is known for breaking where both cables run into one connector. take 10 minutes and clean all 4 battery posts and see if that makes a difference on the starting issue. Good luck.
