Car won't crank

1996 toyota camry, 178,500, 4cylinder

I cranked my toyota camry after work and drove for about 15 minutes to pick something up. When I attempted to crank it would not crank. When I opened the door the dome light was on and when I initially turned to key to crank, the radio and other dash lights appeared, however, when I continued to crank there was one little click and then everything went dead. No dome lights or nothing. My battery connection was tight and without corrosion, however, I could turn the connection with pressure. When I did this, I obtained dome lights and stuff again, however, when attempted to crank, the same thing would happened. Attempted to have another vehicle jump-start me, no luck. Looked at fuses, especially the alternator/starter fuse, was fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The positive side on the battery and check the terminal
You need to remove and clean the terminals both
Pay more attention to the + side it has another connection on it about an inch away from the battery make sure it s clean and if you r to jump it make sure you r getting good connection
Turn head light on get the jump watch head light get brighter when you make a good connection
Then shut light off and try to start

and if the battery old just replace it

Good luck
