There is a lot of corrosion on the top of my battery, what causes this?

This can be caused by a bad connection, but most of the time it’s the battery it self leaking acid through the seal around the post. If there’s corrosion there and you clean it and it comes right back you can bet it’s time to replace that battery. More importantly there is the potential for an explosion if there are fumes coming from the battery and you make a spark it will explode! you must use caution when working with a corroded battery
