i had one with lots of corrosion around one terminal. that one the cable was almost corroded through, hidden by the corrosion itself [the green fluffy gunk right?] bought a new terminal connector $2 and re attached the terminal, removing all corrosion safely first of course. also check connection from battery to starter itself. could be many more things too really but i'm not a mechanic, just owned lots of high mile cars, my 2cents
Sounds like the battery is starting to get weak, and won't hold a charge very long.
I have a 2007 ford taurus V6 with 64,000 miles on and its having problems starting.
All the lights come on but when you turn the ignition the lights get low and it cranks, cranks, cranks, but doesn't start. Then I wait a few seconds and it finally starts.
I checked the battery and it has a lot of acid on the negative cable.
going to clean the terminals, negative and positive and see if that helps.
what's the best product to clean battery cables? should I add some electrolytic grease?
