    Was the corrosion and/or cable repaired/replaced as needed , or was it just jumped and that was it?

    it was cleaned off and just jumped. it had to be jumped to get home where i proceeded to remove the key (do not have the card for the key) and the doors locked (security needed reset). took the hot wire from the battery which is only a 550cca. checked all fuses, tried to jump again. nothing. there is no dimming of lights etc.

    Have you tried disconnecting the battery and charging it completly or getting a good battery?

    yes.i put an 850cca battery out of another car and it still wouldn't start. it did the same thing. apparently also a not so good battery. i finally got a jump with good cables and (yea!), my car started. thanks for all the info.
