  1. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Last night I changed the 12v battery after the car wouldn't start. The new battery has neither the vent port or a spot for the temp gauge, so I left both disconnected. The car started up right away, but now reads Check Hybrid System. This is the first time this car has ever displayed this error...

  3. 4Runner 3rd Generation (1996-2002)
    I have a 2001 4Runner. It will not start unless I jump it. I can drive it for 30 minutes or so but then the check engine lights, battery, VSC, ABS lights all come on. The next morning the car won't start and I have to jump it again. My mechanic says it's not the battery OR the alternator. What...

  5. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Hi all, just picked up an 09 Highlander Hybrid Limited with 100K for $9500 via a private sale. Needed a secondary family vehicle, and in this market, the deal was too good to pass up. It's in spectacular condition too. So what should I be aware of? I can't tell if the timing belt was replaced...
  6. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    I recently bought a 2010 Highlander Hybrid project vehicle to fix up for my wife and I’m hoping to tap into some knowledge here and get this figured out. I bought the vehicle as a no start/needs work and was told the inverter was bad and needed replacing. I wanted to verify before simply...
  7. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    so im currently charging a relatively new battery with a smart charger, but does it actually need to go up to 14.7 volts as the charger's manual says? it's probably doing like 12.8, 13.6, 14.4v etc charging, up to 14.7 then(4.0-0.8A), but could i also stop it at 12.6v or smth? the problem is...
  8. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I recently replaced the alternator on my 01 2.2 Camry and after doing so, the car seems like it has something draining the battery. The alternator is definitely working and the battery turned a year old in December 2020. Should I be looking for a parasitic draw somewhere or is there something...
  9. Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    My 2001 XL gave me a brief scare tonight. Went outside to start it (I had already driven it 2x earlier in the day), it's "cool" out (55 degrees, cold for a Florida car), and when I turned the key to start it everything when dark for.. a split second. Then it started right up, all the lights...
  10. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    A few months ago our 1998 Toyota corolla won't start. There was no cranking. But all the lights, accessories, ac, etc were working. When ignition was turned towards start there was nothing. After about three months of standing idle it miraculously started and was operating as usual. We didn't...
  11. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I will leave my car sitting for about 20 days outside in the winter. My battery is already old so I'm afraid it will go dead after 20 days since winter in Quebec is a bit harsh. So I'm about to disconnect the negative terminal. My concern is that I see some of the cars when reconnecting the...
  12. Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    So, here is the deal. My car has the original battery installed (most likely an AC Delco providing 356 A when cold starting). Never had any problem starting it until yesterday. The temperature was around -5 deg C (not that bad for a Canadian winter). I've tried to start it but it looked like...
  13. 4Runner 3rd Generation (1996-2002)
    2003 4Runner with 250K miles. All the lights on the dashboard have come on. Not just the check engine light and traction control lights but also the battery and SRS lights. What does that mean? Lately, having trouble starting the car and seemingly keeping a charge. Suspected the battery or...
  14. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hi, So I got the dreaded hybrid battery fail. Pulled it out and load tested each battery pack, found a bad one and replaced it. When I put it all back together, I now have no power to the windows, blower, or radio. Code tester will not even register any codes. I double checked (and triple...

  16. Tundra 2nd Generation (2007-2013)
    I have a 2010 Tundra Crewmax Limited 5.7 with tow package I've been dealing with a charging system issue for 5 months now. It will stop charging while driving. The battery light does NOT turn on when this happens. Voltmeter just drops to about 12V and declines as the battery slowly goes dead...

    Hi! Please help me! I have a 2008 Prius that won't start: -The HV/rear battery was replaced two years ago with a refurbed battery that has been giving me progressively lower and lower power readings over the last year. When covid lockdown kicked in, I stopped driving the car for about 6 weeks...
  18. General Automotive 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...
  19. Camry 8th Generation (2018+)
    Hi. I'm currently shopping for new car and am looking at Honda Accords and Toyota Camrys. I'm currently driving a very old Honda Accord (1987). I was recently researching the Camry and found complaints about dying batteries and possibly other problems with the electrical system. It seemed to...
