There sounds to be a problem with your alternator. If the car went dead every few hours or week I'd say its the battery. But if the car lasts 3 months between problems, then you're battery is a champ despite fighting a losing battle.  Do you ever take long trips that coincide with this problem? If your battery isn't recharging then it could drain to dead on a longer trip.  There could also be an electrical problem like a bad ground that only shorts bad every once in a while. Read the voltage when the battery is connected to the car with everything off and then again when the battery is disconnected from the car. Also, have you had the alternator checked? Have you inspected the engine for bad grounds? Have you tried buying one of those battery saver devices? Hope this helps.

My key fob is lost and I need to get into a avalon


You'll need the door key with a dead battery because the key fob won't unlock the doors with a dead battery lost or not.. Toyota dealer is the only place a new key fob can be purchased that will work.

I got a new battery, its been in it for a month or so. Now its dead and when I jump it off it starts then I turn the headlights and it dies and the battery is dead again.


In computer controled cars the computer needs at least 10 volts to operate . If your car is not charging or not carging enough The voltage is low to start with when you boost it. Then you turn on the lights it drops the voltage more to where the computer can't opperate. The batery should be charged before you start it anyway because it is really hard on the altinater to recharge a dead batery. An altinater is only meant to keep a batery topped up , its not a cahrger.

Car won't start after disconnecting battery to replace alternator


Are you sure you have the battery connected right, Red to + Black to -? The connections are tight? Are sure the new batery is good? I've seen that happen before where the battery is new but dead. Try jumping it from another car or put that battery in another car and see if it starts that car. If you have a voltmeter check the battery, it should be about 12.8 volts, then check while trying to start the car the voltage shoudn't drop below 10 volts.

THE 1998 TOYOTA AVALON ENGINE LIGHT GOES ON


Don't take a chance on what the dealer says, when the engine light comes on take it and have the code read and it will tell you what is going on. The light must be on at the time the code is read though or it won't tell you anything. Most auto parts stores will do it for free.

2008 Toyota Avalon Battery Problem


I doubt this is a smart key problem, the key uses a chip and its own battery. Something in the car is causing a drain, a light is staying on possibly. Trunk light, glove box light, under hood light... maybe you have a portable GPS unit plugging into the auxilary port? Just a thought. This is not a common problem that has been reported by Avalon owners as of yet.
