Dirt and corrosion buildup on your battery terminals can prevent a satisfactory connection with the battery cables— corrosion can sometimes be so bad that it keeps your car or equipment from operating correctly.
Poor current to the starter motor can cause it to burn up. Additionally, accessories dependent on the battery can be affected. Corrosion buildup can also eat away at the battery terminals and cable wires. This deterioration will decrease the lifespan of your battery over time, so it’s important to maintain proper battery care and maintenance on a regular basis.
