I presume you mean the battery terminals. Remove negative terminal first by undoing the clamping nut then the positive and scrub the terminal and cable clamp with baking soda and water being careful not to get anything on your clothes or eyes. You could alternatively use a combination brush tool available from the auto parts store or a round file. Put the clamps back on and then coat them with vaseline or grease to slow down future corrosion. Be careful not to short the terminals with any tools while you are doing the work.

What would cause my 86 mazda b2000 to not start or even turn over, it's got a new starter on it & I've been told it could be an electrical problem, when I try to start it I can hear a click noise

If the battery is in good shape with a full charge, and all that happens is a click when trying to start, suspect a battery cable issue. Make sure the cables are clean and tight at the battery as well a tight at the starter. Make sure the ground cable from the battery to the engine is clean and tight supplying a good ground as well

My mazda is set on the sign of the steering wheel with the! Q IS LIKE TO KNOW PLEASE HELP ME

Power stearing rx 8 2004 You need cleaning the two gray plugs below canister air filter. One plug have 2 power cables and other plug have four or five cable. You need electric contact cleaner and cleaning both plug terminal pins Verify the contact must be very clean. The more important is the hose for drainage from the coolant bottle. This is the principal cause of throuble. This is a short hose for drainage. When the car is hot, the hose drainage vapor and drops coolant. This vapor and coolant impact the gray plug and the cable is hot. This causes shutdown of the power steering. change the hose to a longer one so it wont drop fluid on to electrical harness. For finish remove the negative battery cable for reset the electrical system. cleaning the main fuse of power stearing on positive pole of battery. Check the contact this needs to be very clean. check the pole of battery. cleaning both poles if necessary change battery connection. Hope this resolves the problem if not please take it to a qualified technician as you dont want to mess around with steering or brakes for that matter.

Ignition turns on. starter does not engage when key is turned to start position

Most likely the battery terminals need cleaning.
Disconnect battery cables and clean the cable clamps and battery posts.

It's more likely a short circuit somewhere or a sticky door switch. Battery cables can be corroded but not normally bad in that they don't transfer current. Assuming the connections are tight and clean, the problem is probably elsewhere.

New alternator new battery new ignition wire still won't crank just a clicking noise but will crank if it is jumped off. 1998 mazda 626

This is almost certainly a bad starter/solenoid sticking. If you hear the click sound hit the solenoid(NOT the electrical connection!!) on the starter several times with a hammer. If it starts you definitely need a starter. This trick will only work for a few days - so replace that starter.(disconnect battery before replacing it !)

Where is the auto starter?

when you replaced the starter did you ensure the battery cables and terminals were clean? if not driving it that way may have hampered your alternator's ability to properly charge your new battery. i would make sure they were clean and tight then charge the battery and try again. the starter is located on the driver side of the engine on the bottom. disconnect your battery negative terminal before removing the starter.
