Question about 2006 Toyota Camry Solara
I tried jump starting
If nothing (radio, lights, etc) is turning on when you try and start the car, then your battery is completely dead. Even if other electronic components are turning on, the battery still may be so weak that a jump start just won't do; it will have to be replaced.
Other possibilities include faulty components in the ignition system (ignition coil, distributor, etc). If something is wrong with this system, the car might not be able to transfer enough power to the spark plug to start the engine.
Bottom line: your car needs to be looked at by a professional. If you have AAA (and if you don't have it, get it), they will come and do a free battery test and can do an on-site replacement of the battery (if appropriate). Otherwise, they (or another company) can provide towing services to take your car to your preferred mechanic.

Sounds like your alternator is letting go, because your battery is not charging, and this would mean that you could probably just make it home before the juice runs out. Get your alternator checked out, if your car has 50k, this should be under warranty, otherwise could cost hundreds to replace/repair.

that would be your low tire light, check the tire pressures and set them to whatever it says in the drivers door jamb, it will tell you the factory psi settings there. if you had the tires rotated recently that might cause the light to come on untill the tire positions are learned by the cards module. if all else fails a dealer is pretty much the only place that can diagnose tire pressure monitor problems

you definitely need a new battery. replace it, and have the charging system checked when you do. If you do it yourself, use a volt meter to make sure that your battery is holding at least 14 volts when the car is running. anything less, and your alternator is bad. I dont think your alternator would be bad, though. your whole engine and transmission is electronically controlled and runs off of the power generated by the alternator. the battery is primarily there to start the car. without the power generated form the alternator, all of these things start drawing power from the battery. and since the battery cant recharge itself, it will eventually die, and so will your car. so, my guess is your battery just went bad, and your charging system is good. have it checked just to be on the safe side though.

the sliding door is probablly draining the battery,, have door checked.. make sure tracks are clean and hinges are not binding
