    Clean connections, then a liberal coating of Vaseline. It's worked for me for 30+ years. kubota recommends greasing battery connections.

    You can neutralize and get rid of the acid with a mixture of baking soda and water. Once the acid is gone, clean the terminals and the cable's connectors up real nice. If the cable's bolts have built up corrosion than you can put never-seize on them to help prevent future build up. Get some of those red and green felt like washers that prevent corrosion and put them over the terminals. Put the cables back on the terminals and snug the bolts down. Take some of the dielectric grease and paint it all over the outside of the terminals.

    If doing all that doesn't solve your problems than I would look into a new battery.
