Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
hello, thanks for posting ,
Was this the reason for replacing the alternator, was it doing this before? If not what was the reason for the alternator replacement?
Thanks, ***** ***** after the timing belt was replaced?
Ok, it sounds like there may be a loose or bad connection in the charging system or battery ground,check to make sure the ground cable on the battery is tight, check the electrical plug on the back of the alternator for a bad connection or damaged wires, check the large wire on top of the alternator make sure the bolt is tight, check for loose fuses in the box under the hood especially the alternator fuse,
No but they usually disconnect the battery because the alternator has to be disconnected and removed
Ok souds good, let me know how it goes.
