Corrosion on battery terminals can be the cause of grave problems in your car engine. It definitely is a game changer when you go out to start your car, and it doesn’t turn over.  The best thing to do (ok mom I know!!) is keep your car maintained, even if you did regular oil changes, we at Ricks Auto Service would be able to catch that problem.

     I know you can google/utube/etc to find out how to clean the cables and the battery itself, but I hesitate. On some models, Honda for example, when you take the cable off the battery to clean it, you erase the memory and some of it’s codes are critical in letting you know what is wrong with your car.

So, I guess my recommendation is to take your car to a reliable mechanic and have them clean the cables, and see if in fact that is your biggest problem.
