Regrettably, if it the camera won't power on and is showing acid corrosion on the battery door, then the camera is well and truly dead. The battery door won't have been the only thing corroded by the battery acid -- it has more than likely migrated to the internal circuitry and damaged it irreparably.

My car dont start all the time


I would check your battery cables and make sure they are tightened secure to the terminals and there isnt any acid corrosion build up on the battery terminals. If there is build up poor a coke on them and close the hood.

When i open the hood on my 1999 jetta it smells of acid and their is white powdered acid all around the positive pole


I would replace the battery, but if you are unable to I would go to a parts store and pick up some terminal cleaner. That would take care of the acid build up giving you a better connection.

Car won't start. There's no clicking sound but auto seat belts and some dash lights come on dimly.


Check the battery charge and also check that the battery terminals and clamps are clean and free of corrosion and acid residue build-up. If there are signs of acid or build-up, clean with boiling water only. Do not use baking soda or bicarb!

My car want start battery is fully charged. But the immobilizer light on the instrument panel stays on?


Having a full charged battery won't just solve the promblem. You might want to check with the battery terminal connection on the postive+ and negative-, It might be corroded, grease, or acid build up, so check for thse signs, also it could be that clamps are not fully tighten. You still can get power to the car from the baterry which in this case is leads to the immoblizer lights on the dash boards to stay on, but the terminal are corroded with acid, grease, or just from dirt, and with these element in presence, the battery is not fully ground. The engine needs a specific amount of amplitude from the battery for the engine to crank. A kia sorento v6 engine needs alot of cranking amp. So my solution is, check the battery connection terminal on the battery and the cable (positive and negative connections) de-tach the cable connections, clean the connection cables which are the adapter to the battery, and the battery terminals, with a toothbrush or high grit sandpaper until dirt, acid build up, grease are gone, and reinstall the cables. See if this will help.

2nd battery explosion with 3 year interval of flawless operation.


If the unit is using a wet cell acid battery, it's possible that dirt mixed with hydrogen build up on top of the battery caused the second failure. The battery top should be kept clean and should be checked at least 4 times per year. Any stray ignition source can cause the hydrogen to explode, including lightning.

It's also possible that the battery float charger needs to be adjusted or possibly has a problem. Some float chargers are adjustable. The higher the charging rate the more off-gassing the battery will experience and increase the chance of a failure.

If the battery has exploded, the entire generator and housing should be cleaned (washed) thoroughly to remove any remaining battery electrolyte (acid).

Be careful - if you aren't comfortable working on this type of equipment, it's best to call a local dealer and find a service vendor.

2006 Chevrolet Equinox LS 3.4L battery exploded


First, I hope you diluted the battery acid with a little water. Most batteries create explosvie gas (hydrogen). If it isn't vented well, the gas could build up and a spark from even a dirty terminal can set off the gas. Are you saying that you've determined that Chevy Equinox cars are prone to explode their batteries? A sealed battery, such as the Optima, releases no vapors. Such a battery would probably solve your problem.

Will not start


Disconnect the black battery cable, then the red one. Clean both the cable terminations and the battery terminals with a wire brush to remove all corrosion. You can also buy a spray to neutralize any acid residue. When the connections are clean, reconnect the battery - red first, then black. Tighten firmly, but be careful not to strip the threads. Finish by sealing with a protectant spray. Note this is a different spray, not the cleaner mentioned earlier.
