I own a 2013 Toyota Corolla that only has about 22000 miles on it. Over the past few weeks, when I started the car, there was a little bit of sputtering i.e. the noise made when I turned the key into the ignition seemed kind of weak but the car started nonetheless.
Today, the car wouldn't start and when I turned the key in the ignition, it made sort of a clicking noise. Jump starting the car didn't work (though there is a slight chance I did this incorrectly).
Is it possible the battery is dead? I should state I live in Phoenix and we're in one of our hottest summers ever. However, as stated the car only has 22000 and the car model is only from 3 years ago so it seems a bit early for the battery to die. The positive terminal in my battery did have some corrosion on it, not sure if that's normal.
Should I try jumping again or should I go buy a new battery? Or is it possible it's something else?
