Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Thanks for posting,
These symptoms are usually due to a discharged 12 volt auxiliary battery which is located in the trunk, if you have a charger you can try to charge it at low current of about 10amps for about 5 hours, if it doesn't charge back up the battery needs to be replaced, once these batteries are over 4 years in service they won't take a re charge if depleted and need to be replaced.
If you have a voltmeter be sure the battery is charged to 12.5 volts.
That's ok, it's pretty straight forward, just connect the red cable to the positive terminal on the battery and the black to the negative. A better way is to just do it from under the hood, open the fuse cover next to the left headlight, you'll see a red cover with a plus sign on it, open the cover and attach the red cable to it and the black to any ground(any unpainted metal surface) connect the charger to 110volt outlet, some chargers are automatic but some not, if possible adjust it so the charging indicator reads about 10 amps. If it has a voltmeter it will read a little over 12 volts when charged up.
You're welcome, just let me know if you have any other questions.
