Corrosion on battery connections. Vehicle would not start. Poured water on corrosion to wash off, then jumped. Replaced battery. Now electrical issues. Had alternator replaced.
corosion keeps forming on battery cable no matter if I clean and purchase new ones...
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.
