Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
A local expert gave me the codes - I don't have a code reader myself.
The only codes I have are the ones I gave you.
I have a voltmeter. The mileage is 28,000.
I just want to make sure that it's not an auxillary battery issue. Open the hood and remove the fuse cover on the driver's side just below the windshield, there is a small red plastic cover near the top, pop the cover open, there is an electrical connector under the cover, now measure the voltage at that terminal, let me know what it is. I'm not too concerned about the C1310 code at this time until the POA08 code is gone.
I was going to ask earlier, does it start and run normally?
Checked electrical connector terminal and reading is 12.8. The battery is fully charged and the 5 amp fuse at the rear by the battery are ok.
Have tried putting a jump battery on the system and it still doesn't charge.
Dash screen system shows 12.2 with ready light on for starting engine.
The engine runs ok but the battery still doesn't charge and the dash shows a battery warning light and a car with a line through it.
The VSC light is on and it also shows low brake fluid even though the brake fluid is ok.
Also a red triangle shows up.
Many thanks for all your assistance.
Unfortunately my local Toyota dealer have refused to look at the car as it has been involved in an accident (not written off, but an uneconomic repair).
I think I will get a new inverter/converter as I think this will solve my problem.
Ok, I guess I should have asked about the possibility of an accident, if the inverter was hit at all then it would make sense that it may be the problem. I have heard of the possibility that they are available in used condition, you'd have to do a little search.
Good luck with this and please click on the ACCEPT button if you feel my input was helpful.
