Corroded battery cables act exactly like a dead, dying, or discharged battery. Remove both cables, clean the connections at both ends, and check for corrosion between the cable and connector at both ends of both cables. If you see any sign of corrosion in the cable, replace both cables.

Get a battery charger. A six amp charger is plenty big enough. Fully charge the battery, then try to start the car.
06 Canyon: The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.

22 Maverick: Summer 2022 burned 62.74 gallons in 3145.1 miles for 50.1 MPG.
