problem starting on 1994 Toyota Corolla

worked great yesterday. This morning would not start. Nothing left on. Turn key and nothing at all first couple of attempts. Let sit about 5-7 minutes and tried again and it acted like it may want to crank once, but then nothing. Also after this no lights not even dome light would come on. Checked for lose battery cable. after checking cables it did the same as before. It would almost crank once, but then nothing. Also the dome light worked after I checked cables, but when I tried starting it again then no dome light. Please advise.

Remove and clean both of the cables and battery post. Install and tighten cables! If still no crank, try jumping battery, if it cranks over and starts now, replace battery!
