Question about 2004 Toyota RAV4

Open Question

What is correct way to hook up jumper cables on 2004 RAV4

And is there a way to connect the jumper cables without taking off the battery cover. We know from earlier experience that taking off that cover is a major ordeal even for someone who knows what they are doing. Thank you for any help.

Sounds like the alternator is not charging the battery. You need to give more info when asking for help.

SOURCE: clicking and not turning over even when jumper cables attached

The starter is most likely the issue. The solenoid that is part of it is what engages the starter "gear." By tapping on it, you are helping it move, as it is probably worn out. If you can get it out, some auto parts stores can test them, otherwise, get a good mechanic to help out.

The inverted voltage has fried something in the ECM - sorry, you will have to replace it.
BTW the voltage is very low, a good alternator must deliver over 14.2 volts - ideally it should deliver 14.4.

Car will not stay on at idle with or without jumper cables?


Without the jumper cables being connected, do you have 12 volts at the battery and the starter post ? How are the ground connections.

Trucks been rolled , now won't crank


Try this.
Take a positive battery jumper cable and hook it directly to the big lug terminal on the starter solenoid that the cable hooks to from the battery.
Take the negative jumper cable and hook it to a good steel, iron, or aluminum ground connection right by the starter, on the motor.
Now try the key to start it.
If it still says nothing, I'm thinking you have some wire harnesses unhooked from the rollover.
Someone really good could take a little jumper wire and connect the tiny terminal on the starter solenoid (which goes to the key switch), to the positive battery cable, and that should make the starter work, hopefully.
If it cranks with this direct application of power to the starter, be sure and check the "ground straps" between the motor and the frame. I think there are about 3 or 4.
Some may have snapped.
Be blessed.

Truck will not start how can i tell if its a starter or selonoid


does it spin real fast without clanging and grinding against the flywheel? if so then its probably the solenoid bad. do you have to hit the starter with a hammer then it works? it is probably bad brushes or a worn motor. eather way i think you can only get a new starter and solenoid together not sold seperate. check for bad battery cables (loose).

How to replace the battery without reset the radio's code?


A simple way is to take another 12 volt battery and connect it with jumper cables right onto the existing battery connections. Connect positive + to positive and negative - to negative which is parallel wiring. Now remove the connections from the battery you are going to replace without knocking the connections from the donor battery loose. Once you get the new battery installed, simply disconnect the jumper cables. Make sure you connect the cables as described above to keep the voltage at 12 volts and do not connect them in series. Connect them wrong an you will have 24 volts and may damage your electronics. If for some reason you loose the code it is simple to get the code from Honda. Just go to the Honda Owners link below and register your Honda. You will need the VIN # off your car. They will provide the code free of charge.

How do I change a battery on a 2004 Lexus ES330 without loosing any codes, etc? Thanks


I can only think of one way that would ensure you not to lose power to the computer. That would be to hook a pair of jumper cables to a good battery and to the cars cables then disconnect the old put the new in and hook it up withe out knocking off the cables. Just keep the wires away from each other. 2 or more people is very helpful!
Best of luck to ya!

Connect red jumper cable to "jump start point"; located on passenger side of the engine, covered with a red cap marked with a +. Connect the black jumper cable to the engine block; At the most convenient point.

2003 S TYPE JAGUAR. DON'T DRIVE OFTEN BATTERY


You must charge the battery or you can use jumper cables from another battery to your battery to activate the electric trunk release, just be sure you hook up the jumper cables correctly ( cable to + on the battery and black to _ terminal of battery)and wear safety glasses when hooking up cables this should release the trunk. Also as a precaution always hook up + or red jumper cables wires first to prevent a arcing spark which is not terribly dangerous but this order in which to connect jumper cables is recommended.
