  1. Camry 8th Gen - Hybrid (2018+)
    I've been researching Toyota Camry Hybrid models. It seems that the higher trim models (XLE and SE) actually have a lower rated MPG than the lower trim (LE) because of different battery technology. Is there an advantage to the batteries used on the higher trim model, even though they appear to...

    Hi, Overnight I left some internal lights on and apparently that has drained my battery completely - no signs of life on the dash board, no ignition clicking nothing. (recently I got a brand new alternator and a newer battery btw) I have no multi-meter handy but its obvious a power issue. I...

    1998 Toyota Camry 2.2L, 4cyl So recently my battery kept dying on me and I was unsure as to why. So, I took it to AutoZone and had them test the battery and the alternator. Battery was fine, but the alternator kept failing the test. They said my battery was at 91%. So, I took this...
  4. RAV4 3rd Generation (2006-2012)
    So this morning (very dark) my car's battery was drained because of a front and rear camera. I wanted to jump start it for some reason I looked at the + on the positive terminal and still ended up putting the wrong booster cable (Yes. I'm a moron). Now the car is pretty much dead. Only the...

    I drive a Gen-4 '98 Camry LE, and I recently got in an accident that crunched the front end of the car on the driver's side. I've been able to remedy most of the damage (ie. replaced the fender, fixed the cracked air filter housing, replaced the headlight and turn signal light), but I'm having...

  10. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    I have a 2005 Highlander and my handyman for my rentals uses it when he does my house repairs. Today he called and said it wouldn't start so I thought it was the battery since it's been so cold and it's not my daily driver. 10 minutes later he called and said it magically started. So 2 hours...

    I made a short video on how the alternator works in your car. Check it out here: The job of an alternator is to generate power to charge the battery. It turns mechanical energy into electrical energy. This is the alternator I pulled from my Toyota Corolla: The alternator is powered by the...

    I've currently got a group 24 in my '75 longbed and I know I've had other group numbers previously that also fit but I can't remember them. Maybe we can get a list of all known group numbers that fit for us that will grab up a used battery on the cheap... What kinds do any of you all have in...

    My Matrix is running like new and getting great mileage. The only issue I have noticed is when the car is up to temperature and idle is around 750, it gets dim and the blower motor even slows down until I barely give it gas. Battery is at 12.7V with car off, 13.5V with it on. Once I turn on all...
