I have a Toyota 2001, I replaced the battery and Alternator
. Today while driving the cars windshield wipers, turn signal, and central air system all stopped working. I turned off the car, they all worked but now the engine
light is on. I'm not sure how to diagnose the issue
JA: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?
Customer: I would have checked the fuses, but after the car was restarted all of the lost functionality came back, wipers, lights
JA: What is the model of your '01 Toyota?
Customer: I believe the LE, its a 4 cylinder
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am fixing the vehicle myself. The initial issue was my car wouldn't restart. I thought is was the battery and replaced it, my car wouldn't start again (this happened a few times). I went ahead and replaced the alternator. MY car seems to start fine now, I checked the voltage across the battery, it read 12.5V when the car is off and 14.5V when the car is on so it tells me the alternator is working fine
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't thiml so think*
