Clean the battery post with baking soda and water mixture. Go to a local auto parts store and get battery terminal spray to protect it.

Are you finding the top of the battery damp, or wet, when you find the corrosion? Yes you probably should have changed the battery. Have you had this problem before? (ie., with a previous battery) You should also check the charging system voltage. A battery being charged at more than 14.4 volts will begin to gas. (Gases will be released from the battery, creating several hazards). Let me know what you find, if anything, and further help may be able to be provided.

My battery terminals keep snapping and I have replaced the postive twice already in two months. What could be causing them to snap in half? They are hard metal so I don't understand.


A poor connection to the battery can melt a cable. Make sure your battery terminal is clean and free from corrosion.Make sure that your battery lead has slack and that it is not taught, especially when the engine is revving.
Make sure you don't over-tighten the soft battery terminal as it will over stress.

Car won't start unless jumped off. Can the fuseable link on the postive cable prevent the car from starting?


Difficult to say. If you are connecting the jumper cables to the battery posts, the only thing you are doing is boosting the voltage in the battery.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery and the starter to check the cables.

Battery, alternator??? please help!


Check the wires to the battery and make sure they're not corroded and in good shape. Take them off the post and clean the inside so that they make good contact with the battery post. If they're not making a good connection and you start using a lot more power like when using AC they will get really hot and may burn up.
