Hi,

I have a problem with my 2010 Toyota Corolla. I was out of station for a week. When I tried to start my car today after 7 days, it's completely dead. i.e., Even the remote key doesn't work, I had to manually unlock the door also my dashboard light doesn't come up. Can you please help?

Thanks,

My approach would be to remove the battery and take it to a parts house that could analyze and if ok recharge the battery. Take the new or recharged battery back and the car should start ok with no danger of surge damage to the electronics.

I would just plug in my battery charger & let it charge the battery overnight. Doesn't everyone have a battery charger? If not, you should have one. :thumbsup:

Anytime the car is going to sit for an extended period of time use a good smart charger. It keeps the battery at 100% capacity by a multistep process. It is much more than a charger that trickle charges. http://smartercharger.com/ & http://www.geniuschargers.com/ are the top brands used by many people on their high end exotics and other motorized vehicles. I use them on my ATVs, RV and other vehicles with great success. Sits all winter, fires up like brand new in the spring.
