  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my Dakota’s battery post? If you notice white, crusty stuff around the battery terminals of your Dakota, it's likely corrosion. A chemical reaction between battery acid and the air can create a white, powdery substance that builds up over time on the terminals.

  • How do I clean a corroded Dakota battery terminal? Regularly inspecting and cleaning your battery terminals will help keep your Dakota’s electrical system running smoothly. Before cleaning, reference your owner’s manual for instructions on how to disconnect the battery cables. Once the cables have been disconnected, gently clean the terminals with a mixture of water and baking soda, a wire brush, and a rag.
