I have a 2007 Toyota Rav4. I recently disconnected the negative and positive battery cables to clean corrosion deposits from the posts. After this was done, the car has trouble starting the first 2-3 tries. Seems as if you need to press the accelerator to make the car start. After the car start and stablizes it runs normal. This only happens on a cold start. The battery has a full charge and was not having this problem before clean the battery posts with a battery wire brush. Anti corrosion pads were added before reconnecting the cables.
