wow, thanks for all the input guys. I figured it was some sort of chemical reaction, but not sure what kind or why. I haven't checked my positive terminal yet, and I am four beers in so I'll give it a look tomorrow. And to be honest, I'm not sure where the amp is grounded since I paid to have it installed (professionally) by Tweeter two years ago. I just assumed they did it right, because I don't know any better and because they do that kind of stuff all day every day. I don't have a wire brush so I will have to pick that up also. Once I get it all cleaned up I will get some petroleum jelly on it and see how long it takes to return.

I am afraid that if I present it to the dealer as a warranty issue, they will blame the aftermarket stereo hooked to the positive terminal. We'll see.

Thanks again for the good advice!

Falsehood. If it were not dark outside and me being incredibly lazy at the moment, I would go take a picture of my "high dollar car audio battery terminals" with the corrosion fuzz growing on those sealed bastards. All cable ends on mine are crimped and heat shrink sealed.

Mine is like that ever since I did the TB ground mod. Will those terminal protectors work (those green and red cloth rings that go over the terminals)? my accord did that too when I had a system.

Hmm....so it seems like the best thing to do is just check it periodically and clean it off if need be?

first off, i wounder how come no one told him to use coke or pepsi to clean that shit off? second off 84fordman that's weird. i have rockford fosgate brass connectors for 4 years, (two on my zx2 and two on the 6) and i never had that problem. that's kind of weird to tell you the truth but then again maybe im just lucky. knock on wood. Altough it could be argued that i work on my car at least 3 times a week and give evertyhing a quick once over and keep everything clean in there :/

As for using coke or pepsi to clean it...

Do you really want to pour a sugary acid liquid around in your car?

yeah it was really meant as a joke...although I know of some that have done it (because they didnt have a wire brush or anything else to clean it with) and it works pretty darn good, just gotta make sure to clean it up afterwards.
