Customer: 12v
JA: What is the model of your '16 Toyota?
Customer: GLX diesel
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing, other than to recharge both batteries, reconnect them and press the start button
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, that's it

Hi Im David. thanks for visiting the site. when you try to start the vehicle does the red security light go out?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
David, thank you for your response. In the meantime I have fixed the problem. It appears that the battery for the remote was also low and all I had to do was to hold the remote next to the start button - and it worked like a charm. Sorry to bother you and thanks for your efforts. Regards, Mark

you can close this on your end i think. the only way i can is if you accept the answer and leave a rating, but i dont expect that since nothing was done on my part. good day to you.
