A woman, a car battery and a wire brush

My truck would not start yesterday. Much to my dismay, I thought I had a dead battery on my hands. I just bought a battery less than a year ago!
Once I popped the hood I realized that there was a build up of corrosion on the battery terminals. I remember seeing my dad clean up these things before, and knew that that could be a possible cause why my truck was not starting, but all the other elements were working just fine - radio, lights, etc.

Luckily, I found this helpful video on youtube!

After i dropped Sam off at work, I went home and got out my wire brush, a wrench, pliers and a screwdriver. I got to work, about a half-hour later, my car started without a hitch!

Thank you video guy!!
