Question about Mazda MX5
Do i need to take the terminals off ie disconnect the battery, before attaching the crocodiles to start charging?
No, that is not necessary, just connect the charger, if it has an amperage adjustment and the battery is completely dead charge it slow at about 5amps for 5 hours or charge it faster at about 10amps for two hours, either will work.

I do not know if it will help you now, but the problem that I had and I know someone else had with these same symptoms, no crank, but radio, headlights work, etc.
There is a wire cluster between the battery and the steering wheel. The positive wire (red) corroded from the inside out. You may not be able to see it without cutting the outer shell of this harness, but you will see the green oxidized copper powder where the problem is. What I did was cut out this length of wire and replace. You will find that there are other wires that will start corroding also.
Hope this helps!

As long as your attaching red to + and black to - you'll be fine. If you don't want sparks don't turn on your charger until after you connect the wires. Be sure to remove the negative cable to your car before charging or you can damage the computer in the vehicle.
