  1. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Ok, this car is my baby. It's been through a lot in the last year ... I've actually only had it a year, and this mysterious issue came about! First, out of the blue about 2 weeks ago, the power windows and everything on the dash stopped working. The car was still running fine, so I drove it...
  2. Tacoma 2nd Generation (2005-2015)
    Hi, I have had my Tacoma TRD 4x4 2012 for about a year now. The first months I had it, I noticed power variations that were very frustrating since the cause could not be found by Toyota technicians. On time, power variations have been fading and power is steady and acceptable lately. Yet, all...
  3. Tacoma 1st Generation (1995.5–2004)
    I spent the last 14 months going through a divorce and neglected some my 95 Tacoma.. The Starter to Battery cable broke right at the neck where the connector that clamps to the battery terminal is crimped on. Do they sell a replacement connector that can be clamped on to the cable? I have...
  4. Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    I have a VERY intermittent problem with my 2013 Avalon. For the last two years in the months of Jan.- Mar. Sometimes (perhaps twice a season in Winter) When I leave the car sit for over 1 evening in a heated garage without driving it, the battery goes dead. I can charge the battery for an hour...
  5. Celica Forum
    Hello there, 2001 Celica, battery dead after seeming to crank more slowly each time it was started during the day (wife was driving). I disconnected the battery to charge/test it, after reconnecting it started immediately but after 1-2 seconds engine dies. RPMs can be coaxed up to 3,000 in that...

  7. Introduce Yourself Here
    Hey there! My name is Amanda and my husband bought me a 2010 Toyota Tacoma SR5 4x4 6 speed for our 10th wedding anniversary! After I found out how much a ring was going to cost, I suggested my Toyota would be a better investment. The only thing I've changed was the addition of required...

    Earlier this year, I was having trouble with the battery going dead in my 2008 Sienna. Any type of battery drain would kill the battery. Leave the door open for five minutes? Dead battery. Headlights on for a few minutes? Dead battery. It was getting ridiculous. Knowing it could be...

  10. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hi, please take a look at my youtube video of my 2006 camry crank no start. I'm also attaching a pic of some light blue-ish corrosion material on my negative charge side of the battery. I don't think it's the battery. Radio works, lights work, hi-beam flashes strong. Is the starter...
  11. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    my car wouldn't start last week at the supermarket. as soon as i'd turn the key to the 'on' position, all of my dash lights would turn off, and nothing worked until i reseated the negative terminal. but if i tried to start it again, the same thing would happen. with the help of a good samaritan...
  12. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Now I'm not very skilled when it comes to electical, so I need some input. I have a 06 Corolla, I got a test done on my alternator & battery because the car would crank slower than usual then start up, I took the parts off the vehicle & took them in to Autozone. The test came out bad for both so...
  13. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    Recently my alternator was squealing so I replaced it with a new one. Right after the replacement, the battery light came on and after about 10 minutes of driving it went out again. The next day while driving the vehicle just cut out, without warning, as if someone pulled the plug. I coasted to...
  14. General Discussion
    Due to my family getting bigger, I just sold my Toyota truck and am planning to buy a Sienna minivan. I finally found one where the price, year, and mileage match our needs but I have a concern about a tractor battery the current owner said spilled over in the trunk. Attached are a couple...
  15. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi all, Im looking to replace the battery cables on my 94 Camry. Everything I've read says the easiest fix is to cut the ends off and replace the clamps, but it appears someone has already done this before. So now if I cut those and replace the clamps then the cables will be too short to reach...

    The following happened step by step, 1) the sunroof didnt close, the windows didnt go down, speedometer, RPM, and the engine temp gauges stopped working cruise control stopped, and Auto lights stopped working(had to turn them on manually) 2) after around 30 miles of driving, the music system...
  17. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    99' Camry 207,000 miles. When trying to start the car, the dash will light up, clicks once, and does not try to crank or turn over. This happens intermittently. Sometimes it does it once, then second try turns over and powers on. Sometimes it takes 4 or 5 tries, but it does ultimately turn on...
  18. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    I have had my battery die on three occasions in the last two weeks. The battery checks out good. Here is the scenario that causes the death. My wife starts Highlander 2006 and drives to work. On her lunch break she sits in the car, turns the key to "on", rolls the window down, turns car off...

  20. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Hello TN, First time posting. I need to replace my Highlander battery ASAP and debating between DieHard Gold, Interstate MTP, or a Duralast Maxx. I don't live near a Costco to get a Kirkland. The battery needs to withstand northern Michigan winters. Any suggestions? Being a lady, I want to...
