Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
What do mean the battery was cleaned ? was the fluids inside removed ?
or was the terminals (where the cables connect) cleaned due to some whitish build up ?
If the fluids inside were cleaned you can try (and this will probably not work). remove the battery from the car.
open the battery (the caps where the water goes in). remove the fluid inside (be careful it may be sulfuric acid) then rinse out the battery a couple of times with hot water.
leave battery in sun with caps off to dry out completely.
fill the battery with battery acid.
Put the battery on a trickle battery charger for 24 hours or until charger indicates full charge.
Reinsert into car and connect the terminals.
See if it worked.
If it didnt -> replace the battery
If the terminal were simply cleaned, lossen the terminals with the correct spanner, pour some hot water over the terminals to wash away any residues, then while the terminal are still wet fasten the terminals once again.
Remember that should the fluid inside your battery gets low (should be checked regularly) fill it with battery water (distilled water) only.
