  1. 4.5 RAV4 Hybrid (except Prime)
    From the Toyota website, there seems to be two different types of batteries used for the 2023 Rav4 Hybrid, depending on the Trim. The XSE shows a Li-ion at 259.0V. Both the XLE and the Woodland show a Ni-MH at 244.8V. That surprises me. Does anyone know the improvements that might be found...

    Hi, I have a 2001 rav4. In the morning there is no problem with the first start, but when I leave the car for 2 minutes After just hear a click and have to hold the key for 10-15 seconds, and then the engine starts. If I pull over before starting, I may not be able to start at all and will need...

    Car: Rav4 LE 2020. Issue: 12V battery dead after forgetting the lights on overnight - completely dead no power whatsoever. Recharged it but now the fobs are not working. Should I reconfigure that? Could it be a fuse issue? Thanks!
  4. 4.4 RAV4 Hybrid
    Over the past 7-8 months, my MPG has gone from about 38 to less than 32. I fill up from the same stations, and my driving habits have not changed. The decrease has been gradual, going down to 36 for a while, then 34, and now 32 or less. I have contacted my dealer to see what kind of testing...

    I made a mistake and let the keys in my 2014 RAV4 XLE overnight. Battery was dead in the morning. I charged the battery up, but when I turned the vehicle on the AWD light and VSC indicator were stuck on. I've been driving with them on for a while and they haven't gone off on their own. There...

    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...

    Hello everyone, I recently installed a new head unit in my 2019 RAV4 and I lost the plastic cover for the negative battery terminal in the process. I pulled out the plastic holder for the negative terminal of which the cover snapped on to and it has a part number of 28859-25050, but I cannot...

    Hi My friend's 2019 Rav4. Problem: The AC blows only through the main cabin. At first dealership claimed this was normal. After going a second time and insisting, then dealership changed their story saying that they had to 'reprogram' something and that it was caused by the alarm system...

    2008 RAV4 Limited, fully loaded, ~150k miles, runs pretty well... Yesterday morning, I went out to start my car and it was turning over and over and over but the engine never kicked on. The battery seemed to have a charge as it wasn't "clicking" like it was dead. Note: battery was replaced...

  11. 4.5 RAV4 Hybrid (except Prime)
    I live in Saskatchewan where 137 year old record for cold was broken last week. So 2nd year in a row I've had the 12v battery completely die on me. Last year it was a bit of my fault as I didn't drive it for weeks at stretch but this year I had to jump start it few days in a row while using the...
  12. 4.5 RAV4 Hybrid (except Prime)
    This is all for the sake of provoking thought as I don't know nearly enough about fine battery controllers, possible voltage differences in battery or vehicle systems, any effects from the different chemicals, etc, to actually try this, nor would I expect the physical installation to be...

    Lent my 2000 RAV4 to someone so it wasn't sitting around, and they ended up letting it sit around. Anyway, Tried driving it a little, but battery immediately goes dead again after being parked a minute or less. Meter said 5.95 Volts. Alternator is 2 years old. Wondering if instead of going on a...

    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...
  16. 4.5 RAV4 Hybrid (except Prime)
    We know that the rav4 hybrid 12v (auxiliary) battery is charged from the DC-DC-converter, and that charging is modulated (somehow) by the current sensed at the auxiliary battery negative terminal, maybe integrated with messages from other sensors. We can see that the voltage delivered from the...

    So I've been having somewhat random starting issues with my 06 Rav4. It has 200,000 miles, and last week it had a really slow start up. Cranked for two to three times longer than normal, then started up. The rest of the week it was fine, so I figured it was probably just a fluke, but then it...

    Hi techies, My 2013 Rav4 xle has been parked idle for more than a month and the battery had been completely drained. When I parked my car everything was good and it was armed( compustar remote starter and alarm installed by bestbuy). Today when I tried to start, I observed that the battery was...

    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...

    The interstate group 35 battery had been giving me trouble, finally got to Wal-Mart and took the plastic plate with me, EverStart max group 35 and 24F were same price, looked super close in profile so I grabbed it for the additional 90 CCA vs the 35. It sits great in the spot, fyi
