Default Honda Won't Start

My 2006 Honda Civic wont't start or turn over this am. I noticed one of the two battery posts had green corrosion on it (the one covered with the red cap) other one with no cap is fine. Does this mean there is a leak in the battery. The battery is original from the 06 purchase and with winter coming I was wondering if it may be time to have the battery tested. I cleaned the terminal on the outside only this am so not sure if a more through cleaning inside the battery clamp would make a difference. Thanks for any info.

It is my understanding that batteries only last 5 or 6 years, so it could be that you may need a new battery. Try taking a piece of speaker wire and holding one end on the negative post and gently (and quickly) scraping the other end on the positive post. This is how I found out my battery was dead because there was no spark. As soon as I got a new battery, my car started perfect... Hope this helps
