Customer Question

I have a 2012 Toyota Tacoma. It has been running great with no issues. I just went outside to start my truck and it won't start. When I turn the key the charging system light flashes and the low oil light comes on. When I turn the key, the brake pedal starts to vibrate and a ticking noise comes from near the radiator on the engine. Now, my horn is sounding randomly.
I checked my oil and it appears to be good. The interior lights still work, so I'm not sure it's the battery. Any ideas?

Interesting, do you have a multimeter?

You can also try to use your key and go to the trunk and unlock or lock it. If that doesn't disarm the alarm, go to every door any unlock or lock the lock. Let me know if the alarm gets disarmed.
