Solar battery charger?

My neice is a freshman in college and she has a 2006 scion tc the sits parked in the campus garage for the whole week,well to make a long story short,her battery died and the tow truck driver couldnt jump her car because he said her battery was too dead and that she needed a solar battery charger because the computer in those cars stays on constantly.Is there any truth to this story?because one,I've never heard of a solar battery charger before.

    thanks for the info because I've worked in the auto parts industry for 13 years and never heard of one. But do those cars have a computer in them that constantly stays on?

    Thank you so much,you've been so helpful.I'm assuming an internal computer,the tow truck driver didnt give her any specifics.I asked her if he said a ecm or something,but she didnt know either.Thanks again.

Absolutely. solar chargers are out there, most electronic shops will have them. get at least a 7 watt one. or a new deep cycle battery will easily handle being in storage for a week. so long as doors are all shut tight.

I have a 2006 Scion TC that the right axle bearing went on last week and the shaft pulled out of the tranny. I replaced it with a remanufactured one from Napa last week and last night the same thing...


even when you buy from napa ,auto zone - checkers- all parts are manufactured from same place, I replaced the front wheel bearings in my 07 tc and with in a month they went bad had to replace them again, used a better bearing than what was the manufacture specs, so it could be bad workmanship or bad products, no every part is made to last .

2006 scion tc


should be a shift lock button towards the top of the gear lever? if not then just use a jump battery.
if you can't get to the cars battery buy a cheap plug for a cig lighter socket and and use a 12v battery. a 9v battery may do it if your fast.

Solar battery charger


Yes, but the efficiency of solar cells is terrible. Its one thing to use free sunlught to charge the cells, its another to have to pay the electric company to do it. If you can access the batteries in the solar rig easily and they are in the correct voltage range, I think you would be better off getting a battery tender (trickle charger). Just let the van sit outside until the batteries are fully charged, then connect the battery tender to keep it fully charged.
