Corrosion is a powdery / crusty buildup from either battery case seepage around the posts. Or a poor connection somewhere in the system.

If your electrical system isn't failing try a dab of petroleum jelly on the battery posts and some treated felt rings for each battery terminal.

What you're visually seeing is a residue as a release in the form of oxidized acid energy that's escaped the circuit.

Brakes Locking


I suspect corrosion in your master cylinder, or in one or more wheel calipers. That usually happens when the brake fluid gets old and absorbs moisture.

How long would it be since the brake fluid was flushed and replaced?

My 2002 jaguar x-type signal lights dont work and it goes dead while driving


Check the negative battery cable for corrosion. I would start by replacing it. Lots internal ground cable corrosion problems on the x-type. If you have a battery light on and the positive cable is very hot then you need to replace the pos. Cable also.

I have a 91 chevi silverado and when i connect the positive the battery starts to spark alot


Some sparking would be normal if you have the neg. already hooked up but it is best practice to connect the positive first.

With the negative side not connected nor touching any other metal surface, there should be no sparking.

Then connect the negative side. Again, always disconnect the neg. side first and connect the neg. side last. I think you will have less sparking going on then.

2004 E150 van wont start. -5 degrees last night, battery is less than a year old and tests out OK according to NAPA test. When key is thrown, just a click is heard. Dash volt meter reads normal,...


START BY CLEANING THE BATTERY TERMINALS. NEG CABLE OFF FIRST THEN POSITIVE. CLEAN CABLES & TERMINALS PUT CABLES BACK ON & TIGHTEN POS. FIRST, NEGATIVE ON LAST & TIGHTEN. IF THAT DOESN'T DO IT. LOCATE STARTER RELAY ON FENDERWELL. TURN KEY TO START. MEASURE VOLTAGE AT STARTER RELAY. IT SHOULD READ NEAR 12 VOLTS. IF NOT CHECK NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH. THE STARTER MAY BE STUCK OR WORN AS A LAST RESORT HOLD IGNITION SWITCH IN START POSITION, AT THE SAME TIME TAP ON METAL PART OF STARTER WITH MEDIUM SIZE HAMMER. IF STARTER GOES AFTER HAMMER TEST, REPAIR OR REPLACE STARTER.

My 2000 Chevy Blazer battery light is on. This


Could be anything from corrosion on cables, loose cables, lose or faulty wiring of wires behind alternator
defective voltage regulator. Visually inspect all the items noted. Then use a volt meter and measure the charging voltage of the alternator. It must be between 13,5 to 14.5 volts with and without accessories on at idle and 2000rpm. Anything below 13.5 weak battery or defective alternator ,lose wiring , corrosion. Anything above the 14.5 volts is a defective regulator.

My car will not start after battery has died. Tried jump start but it did not work. Could it be a problem with the alarm?


Is the car trying to do anything? If it just clicks, check the connections to the battery and make sure they are clean and tight. (no corrosion) Also, hopefully you charged it with the negative cable off (not a huge thing) but do not try to bypass the battery and jump it and try to get it going on the alternator- this can damage the electronics in the vehicle. The battery acts as a buffer to prevent damage to the vehicle's electronics. Lastly, you may just have a bad cell in the battery. They can corrode over time and on rare occasions they can literally short out themselves, Hope this helps you.

96 HONDA ACCORD WONT START


have you chkd the + pos. connection from the battery to the starter?this could be loose and not giving the starter enuff power to turn the car over,or..if you do get a "click" when you try to start it then it could be silonoid on starter(it has two wires on it and most of the time it is connected to the starter however some cars have them on the side of the engine compartment,those types you can replace without replacing starter as well) if you had corrosion on the pos. terminal and wires it may have corrosion in the wire you cant see,i have seen that a few times.clean or replace the wires that have corrosion in them and try to start it, if no start just the click,try the other option i gave you...
hope this helps you out!!!
