A number of years back when I was sourcing a + cable for my 2003 V6 and was having a hard time, I seem to recall wondering about using the more common 4cyl version. IIRC, closer looks at the photographs of the cables on sites like eEuro and saabpartscounter led me to believe that despite the very similar lengths and appearance in the line drawings on the parts diagrams, the V6 version had extra legs coming off it that the 4 cyl didn’t. Also make sure the leg to the fuse block is wired the same on both cables.
Since you have the cable out already it should be an easy comparison. Anders’ thinking around the repair of the suspect section may be a good one if you can find an electrician to do the splice and crimp for you as you aren’t comfortable with it yourself.
Ultimately, a call to eEuroparts (back when they were in CT) got me lucky. They had one on hand that wasn’t appearing in inventory, so it came my way and my mechanic wrestled it in. Made a HUGE difference in the car - charging, light brightness speed of crank and start. Complete rejuvenation
