Customer Question

Will not start. Battery has a charge and Starter tries
JA: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?
Customer: yes.. i checked
JA: What is the model/year of your Toyota?
Customer: disconnected to try to reset but nothing 2016 sr5
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: honestly just the battery.. to try to clear a nuissance code if that's all it was.. I dont want to void the warranty but I'd think its fuel related and by how new it is, im guessing module but cant find much of anything online
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: sure.. Gas tank is near full but i have a low fuel light on..
