    Long story here, but essentially I was on a family trip and someone's rav's rear brake lights were out and the car needed to be driven in low light conditions the next morning to get home. In a pinch I took one of the fuses from under the dash for the heated mirrors and replaced it for the...

    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...

    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...

    Greetings folks. I have a 2016 LE Rav4 that I really enjoy. Back in 2019 I decided to install aftermarket seat heaters for the cold German winters. Many thanks to AndSpenRob with his fantastic post (2012 RAV4 aftermarket heated seat installation (lot of...) helping me accomplish this. I...

    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...

    First time poster, long time lurker. I have learned so much from this forum so first- thank you! I bought a replacement driver side visor to fix the dreaded sagging visor and followed the instructions to replace it. In the process of removing the original visor I stupidly managed to pull out the...

    Just installed some fog lights on my 2016 LE. I’ve got everything wired up and noticed there’s a wire needing to be tied into the park lights. My question is does anyone know if it’s essential to hook up to the fog lights to the park lights? Or can I run them without tying into the park lights.

    Just bought a low mileage 2018 RAV4 LE. Last car I bought was a 2005 Honda Civic, so I am in electronic fix/computer shock as well as sticker shock. I have some questions that I am sure others here can help me with. 1) I need manuals beyond the owner's manual for doing things like adding...

    I am having a very similar issue to some other RAV4 owners on this forum. I have a 2003 RAV4, that is having a recurring electrical issue. Battery keeps dying. I took it to my mechanic and he thought it was the alternator. Replaced the alternator, but battery died just a few months later...

    Hi Everyone, I'm currently planning out a project for my 2019 RAV4 Hybrid in which I will repurpose one of the unused instrument panel switches that is to the left of the steering wheel. I plan on adding an RF transmitter that will be able to communicate with a garage door. I'm evaluating the...

    Our 2003 RAV4 with 100k plus miles started having a weird electrical problem. I took a trip to the grocery store with no issues. When I went to start it in the parking lot on the way home, everything was dead including the accessories. I popped the hood to check for a connection problem, and the...
