Chances are you either over filled the battery, or took the car over a bad bump and splashed battery fluid out onto tha battery top. The best way I know to clean up the resulting corrosion, is to use baking soda and water with a throwaway tooth brush.

You might want to put some silicone greese on the terminals after the clean up.

A little pretty well known trick. Glue a penny right next tothe terminal.. it somehow "pulls" the corrosion onto it

well i never filled the battery, it's pretty new

but the bad bump is totaly feasable w/ the offroad teritory that the car endures... i never knew that the battery could be the problem...

baking soda and water and a toothbrush eh...

good tip
