I previously had lots of corrosion on my battery cables. We scraped all of that off but once again, my car won't start. There is a slight spark on the negative terminal but not much. Could it be the terminal connectors? I have had a problems with corrosion in the past.
JA: Figuring out why a car won't start can be a challenge - it could be a simple repair, or something a bit more complicated. Fortunately, the mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes. The plan is to replace the battery connectors tonight and hope that works.
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Using the wire brush to clean off the corrosion. We also had a chemical (acted like peroxide) that we sprayed on the connectors. Other than that, nothing.
JA: Is there anything else the Toyota Mechanic should be aware of about your Toyota?
Customer: It currently has 220,000 miles. Not sure when the spark plugs
were last changed either.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Toyota Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
