Hi All,

I'm trying to run a load test on the OEM battery but can't find the Cold Cranking Amps on the original battery. Yes this is the original battery so more than likely it is on it's last leg. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Looks like 530 CCA

How much do new Toyota TrueStart batteries go for nowadays? I keep getting mixed numbers each time I look.

Yikes, and I thought my Motorcraft battery that I bought for my Crown Vic was a lot at $140 - and that one made 850 CCA.

The Motorcraft had a 100 month pro-rated warranty, 3 year free replacement, and it still cost less while making more cranking amps, both cold and normal. $170+ for not as good of a warranty or cranking amps is a joke.

^^That would be the one to go with, they have a 3 year free replacement, and make a lot more CCA than the stock TrueStart battery. Plus the warranty is good at any O’Reilly location.

$103..... Sometimes on sale

Usually my batteries are tired after 4 years. I replace every 4 and dont worry about warranties or other silly marketing.

Another affordable choice:

Most "Gold" level batteries from auto stores have a 36 month free replacement warranty, and an additional 24 months of prorated warranty.

This might just be some voodoo in the family, but it was something my dad always told me as a kid. He said to replace your batteries every 3-4 years. You don't want an old battery stressing your alternator. It's a lot easier and cheaper to change out a battery than changing an alternator down the road.
