1994 Toyota Pickup 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 182000 miles
Hi, thanks for the help. My truck was perfectly fine then one day wouldn't crank. I had had a lose terminal in the past and thought that was what it was. Kept tightening it but it still wouldn't crank. (It's a brand new battery). I finally realized the bottom of the terminal had corroded through and replaced it with another one. After I replaced it, I got no electrical response at all, lights, ignition buzz, nothing. I had a friend jump me off, drove around for 30 mins or so to recharge the battery. Shut if off tried to crank it again, this time dashboard lights came on but when I tried to turn the key, nothing, no noise or anything. I'm not sure if I need to replace my battery cables b/c they also might be corroded (or damaged from me pulling them to get them on the new terminal) or if I damaged something by trying to crank it so many times?
have the same problem?
