Customer Question
Hey, I'm getting no...

Hey, I'm getting no signs of power (i.e. the dashboard won't turn on, no sign of life at all) even when the battery is hooked up to another car and when the battery has been switched with a perfectly good, charged one.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

I have checked all the fuses and they are all good except for the EFI fuse but that wouldn't account for no power.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

1992

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes i am, so far I have charged and switched the battery and checked the fuses

Toyota Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 10 months ago

If you do not mind me asking ,are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Do you have a test light & or power probe for testing ?

just picked up a test light
I'm self educating, depending on the difficulty of the repair I'll either try to fix it myself or take it to the shop.

Here are the Symptoms: Highlander Hybrid 2008, Saturday,
Saturday, when we returned from a weeklong trip, I tried to start it and all the internal lights (warning, dash, overhead) started flashing and it wouldn't start. I Switched off, moved the headlight position from "auto" to "off", and it started right up when I turned the key. Today my wife tried to start it and it wouldn't start - no lights or anything. The same when I tried to start it, after I turned the headlights to off. I got out my battery charger, connected it properly (red to battery, black to engine) and started charging. 10 seconds into charging, the charge light started blinking. I checked the settings, moved it through the settings again, and it cycled through charge to fully charged position. I disconnected the charger, Tried the start, and it started right up. … read more
