REMOVAL The battery is accessible without removing the right front wheel and tire assembly. (1) Verify that the ignition switch and all accessories are OFF.
(2) Turn the steering wheel to the full right position.
(3) Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable remote terminal from the remote battery post.
WARNING: NEVER GET UNDER A LIFTED VEHICLE IF NOT SUPPORTED PROPERLY ON SAFETY STANDS.
(4) Remove the air cleaner housing. Refer to the index for the location of the procedure.
(5) Remove battery splash shield. Refer to the Body section of the service manual for the procedure.
(6) Disconnect the heater blanket cord, if equipped.
(7) Remove the two short bolts from the battery hold down and remove the hold down.
(8) Disconnect the positive battery cable from the battery.

soooooooo. . . i took everything apart. .. and this is what i found. . .
got a ride to auto zone. . . bought a new terminal & some terminal protectant spray. . . came home. . . took off the old terminal put on the new terminal. . . cleaned off the battery (battery looked fine). . . rebuilt everything i took off. . . and about 1hr and $5 dollars later. . . my cars back in action. . .
I bought a battery too when mine did this, but I took that sucker back as soon as I found out that it was just a loose connection. And I did spray the terminals with this type of contact lubricant to prolong its life.
