    I just got a new battery for my 2010 Toyota RAV4 sport v6 4wd. The new battery is an interstate mtx-24f, it has 120 reserve, and 710cca whereas my last battery had 110rc 680cca is there any problems with upgrading to a better age battery? If I need to upgrade the alternator to the increase...
  2. 4.3 General
    I have a 2006 V6 2WD Base trim with the tow prep package. It was recently improperly jumpstarted (long story), and it blew the 10Amp ETCS fuse and the 140A Alternator fuse. There are quite a few threads on here about the process to get that 140A (or 120A for non-tow-package) out by taking apart...

  5. 4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Hello, my 99’ rav4 awd won’t start. I have replaced the battery and alternator as the battery light has lit up a couple times before, so I figured I’d change both. i do have an IID device inside of the car yet the device was draining my battery and destroying the alternator. I’m due for an oil...

    Hi everyone, I am a new user here and very excited to share my adventures of my 20 year old Rav4 with you. The story goes: I first picked up this vehicle at an local auction, paid a bit overpriced for what it was worth yet I needed a car asap. Originally the first generation RAV4 wasn’t the car...

    Hi all, First time posting here. A couple months ago, a Toyota dealership convinced me I needed a new battery with my oil change on my 2010 RAV4 I4 Limited, 86,000 miles at the time. They said the battery was reading 14.2 volts instead of 14.6V. I drove it on a couple road trips since then...
  8. 4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Hi, I have a RAV4 manufactured in 1995. Recently I checked the battery voltage with a multi-meter when the engine is started and got more than 18v. I think this isn't normal. I assume that this is a problem with the voltage regulator. Do you think this issue occurs with a faulty voltage...

    i haven't found any reference to an alternator sounding like this - but that's certainly where it seems to be coming from. can anyone confirm or offer thoughts?

    Hi, thanks in advance for your time. I have 2011 Rav4 - 4 cylinder. It has 96k miles on it. Recently saw a little wet spot right behind the alternator. Oil level looks good, coolant level looks good. Not sure what could be. I have attached the pictures. Anyone else have/had similar things in...
  12. 4.3 Mechanical
    My battery light came on, and then soon after I lost power steering. I tested and charged the battery and found out the battery was perfect. I came to the conclusion that this problem was related to the alternator, because I lost power steering, which is electrical and powered by the alternator...

    Peace everyone, I'm pretty sure it's my alternator but just thought I would share anyway before I set out to change it. I have 2006 Rav4 140k miles and the other day I turned the car on and the red battery light was on I thought nothing of it and went up to the street. Side note it was the...
