Hey guys. My my battery's negative terminal and the lead connecting it to the car react and form a white/blue/yellowish substance that over time accumulates and eventually there isn't enough contact to get the car running!
What to do?
Do you

Replace terminals as suggested by Eugene123 and then apply grease to the terminals and it will prevent the corrosion from accumulating.

Had replaced the terminal twice before. Will replace the whole wire as well this time round.

Thanx for the feedback guys!
