Was working fine 2 days ago.

Insert key, try to twist it all the way, hear a machine gun sound coming from the engine bay. Dashboard lights are working but there's a check-engine symbol.

Luckily I have the 15k maintenance service scheduled tomorrow but I'll use ToyotaCare to tow it.

Anyone got the same problem? Could it be the battery? (I just think it's something to do with the ignition because of the sound from the engine)

Most likely it is battery issue or something drains it.

My stock battery in my 2020 TRD drained to 7V once in the early 2020, just a few months having the new RAV4. I then replaced it with an AGM battery without going to dealers. I don't have any battery troubles since then. I have also updated the DCM software myself.
