I recently got a battery replacement from Pep boys and the mechanic had to jump start my "New battery" once he tightened the terminals because it did not crank once he installed it. I just visited my family for Christmas in Atlanta and from not driving it 2-3 days, when it was time to departure the car wouldn't crank and i had to get it jump started again so i could make my 200+ miles back. It was cold at nights no lower than 52degrees. About a month before this, I cleaned my terminals from battery corrosion with baking soda etc. But i think i may have cleaned it wrong leaving the positive terminals attached. So maybe this could be the reason? I'm just stuck between if its a bad battery or a starting issue.
