Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Battery replaced (connectors were severely coreroded), battery replaced with a used refurbished battery, noticing corrosion on left connector of battery appears to be leaking at connectors, drove to work today and power steering went out, battery light sensor came on.  Able to drive, motor sounds great.  Should I buy a new battery and replace connectors?

Have the battery tested before discarding it. 12.6 volts and CCA rate checked under load. (discount auto store no fee) Clean terminals very well or replace terminal connectors if not serviceable, Regards
