I had to replace my front driverside drive shaft. I noticed the battery terminals were corroded. I took them off cleaned them with soda and water. Put on some anti corrosion pads Vaselined the terminals and tightened them. The car started once and now nothing all electrical works but no click when I turn the key.

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

The first thing I recommend is removing the "pads" and throwing them in the trash. Those cause more connection issues than anything.

If that doesnt do it let me know once they are gone and we can do some testing.
