Hello Everyone.
This is my first post, and I am asking for help - my car won't start.

I realized the original battery of my 2011 RAV4 Limited is not getting enough charge and may die soon while cleaning the car this evening. After cleaning up everything and accidentally leaving the interior lights, heater and music on for a while I opened up the hood to check the corrosion and while trying to clean it dropped the wrench on it making contact between positive and negative with few sparks. Anyways I removed the terminals, cleaned them up and reconnected, set the clock again and tried starting up the car but it won't start. I have the push button start. All light come up but were weak so thought battery does not have enough volts to start the car and I tried jump starting with a help of a friend but car won't start.

I am not sure if there is an immobilizer and how to reset it if so. Or did I blow up any fuse while cleaning the battery terminals and which ones to check & where. Please advise on how to start the car. Thanks.

RAVN4RED you were right. There were ABS fuses blown out, one 50A and two 30A. Replaced them and everything is good now. Thanks for the advise.
