  3. Charging System Question

    General Discussion
    I don’t have much knowledge about cars but this is what I understand. Whenever the engine is on, the alternator will always be generating electricity to power all components while charging the battery, because it is connected to the engine via serpentine belt. Does this mean even if you have a...

    This is an ongoing problem with my 08 Hybrid Limited. And, yes, I've got a brand new battery in it. Last night I got home about 9pm, parked the vehicle in my driveway, and today at 2pm went out to start it. Nothing. Nada. Battery is almost completely dead. I've made sure my headlights are...

    First person to tell me how to disable the door open light, so that I can use a Habitent without killing the battery, gets a cookie. See manager. I'm planning to buy a 2006. Thanks.

  14. Battery drawing 12 V

    Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    My wife's car is out of commission and my truck just started acting up. I know the battery is old and week but it has a parasitic draw. A couple of months ago it wouldn't start so I cleaned up the battery terminals, charged the battery and was back in business. I figured I would probably need...

    Thank you to the previous feeds on this topic. I was quickly able to ascertain that 410 mA is way too much of a draw. The other feeds gave me some general direction but I thought I would start a new feed specific to my 2011 Camry SE 4 cyl in case there were others that have run into the same...

    My 2007 Camry hybrid needs a battery and I’m debating whether to have it replaced or buy a new used car. My price range for a new car would be about 14k.
