How to clean negative terminal on battery.

I took the negative terminal off the battery to clean it. After I put the negative terminal back on the radio won't work and when the key is not in the ignition the car makes a dinging sound as if warning me that the key is in the ignition. Any ideas what could be going on?

Get one of those battery cleaning tools for two bucks. Use a little baking soda and water. Would not hurt to do the positive terminal while the negative one is off?
