    ok i cleaned the negitive cable yesterday and had battery tested ( good), but rained all day, so could not complete, there was some corrosion, and the rubber that is around the post looked like it may interfere, so i cut a little nit away

    Important!!! parking breaks on front lifted so you can get under the car to the starter get a long screw drive I want you to momentarily touch the big nut to the small one. Did it crank? If so your battery maybe good and you have other issues. If not check other stuff? More to come after you reply.

    O my bad I don't know what year your car is. but the process is pretty much the same no matter where your starter is located. and if you can't get a screwdriver on it. you can use the remote start switched they are sold at most auto part stores.
