  1. 4.4 Mechanical
    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...
  2. 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...
  3. 4.2 Accessories
    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

    Hopefully this will help someone someday - my 2013 RAV4 Limited has about 45k miles and I noticed about 5 weeks ago that starts were starting to get progressively weaker. Today, the automatic lights stayed on while the rear lift gate was open in the garage for about 10 minutes. I closed the...
  5. 4.3 General
    The battery died on my '09 6cyl, 4WD. I replaced it with a new battery. Connections are correct. I can hear a click (like a relay) when I install the second battery terminal. Car cranks, but won't start. All the idiot lights come on. I've tried two different known good keys in case it was some...
  6. 4.5 General
    I was making up a maintenance record with relevant info and got to the battery. I know it isn't going to need replaced for many years, but I wanted to have it documented in advance. Online auto parts stores list it as Size Group H5, with most having Cold Cranking Amps ratings of 600+. Looking...
  7. 4.3 Mechanical
    Check battery light came on today while I was driving back to work. Was still on when I drove home, about a 30 mile commute. About a mile from home, the power steering light comes on and steering wheel gets hard to turn. Once home, I cut the engine and turn the ignition to see if it will...
  8. 4.3 Mechanical
    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...
