Question about 2000 Toyota Avalon
About every 3 months battery goes dead, give it a jump no problem for another 3 months. Dealer gave up, toyota gave up. Now what?
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.
