  1. Alright.. almost can't believe it was this easy and simple..but if anyone has been following my posts, my 1949 Roadmaster was having problems starting/battery draining. Well, I ordered NEW battery cables from YNZ, and..... VOILA! Not sure if it was my positive cable, or my braided negative cable, but the ol' lady fired right up with absolutely NO hesitation!!! Now that I have a brand new braided negative cable, I can actually see how bad/old my old one was.. wow. In the meantime while waiting for the cables to arrive, I had also removed as many ground locations I could find/think of, and cleaned them up. I CAN NOT express how important it is to have CLEAN grounding locations, and good/proper battery cables! I know this from trial and error now! Ok.. Now, since the new battery cables did their jobs, when I fired her up I noticed something really weird. I am not sure if it is because she is getting all the juices she needs from the battery, but now I have a weird "HISSING" sound emanating from underneath her dash. It seems to be coming from near the steering column area, under the dash. I have absolutely NO idea what this is. Can it possibly be the defrost??? All of my push/pull levers are in the "off" position.. So, does ANYONE know what this "hissing" noise could be??? Is this a really BAD thing? Or is this something that can be fixed as simple as putting in my new battery cables were? Has anyone ever had this happen to their cars?? ANY input is welcome! Jerry Case 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door
