One morning the car would not start. One battery cable where it connected to battery terminal had white and blue battery acid residue. I removed the cable and cleaned up both the terminal and the brass cable end connection and then put back in place. However, the rather fragile brass partly broke so I plan on taking it to a shop to have replaced. Corrosion was such that the clamping bolt on the terminal end was damaged and would not turn.
