Hello I hope you are doing great. My name is***** would be happy to help with this.

Have you had the battery tested yet?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No. Why would it be the battery when dashboard lights and controls are working?
Toyota Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

The lights and alarms take minimal power, sometimes the headlights will even work when the battery is dying
