Default Battery Cable Melting

One particular battery cable has stated melting when the car is used. The first time it happened I did not see it hot, just that it looked corroded so I replaced it. Once I put the new cable on I realized it was actually getting extremely hot and melting/corroding at the terminal the previous cable broke on. I am guessing there is a short or that particular battery is bad? ANy advice or ideas?

Batteries are 3 years old. I guess I will disconnect them and test, then maybe replace the one. I was also concerned about only replacing one and not all at the same time.
