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.

SOURCE: My car RAV4 2004 can't start when the battery runs

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.

My chevy 95 Tahoe has been parked for a while with no battery, now I put a new battery, it cranks but won't sta st?


I ran into a similar problem with a Cavalier, turns out that the on-board computer needs to have constant power. Even if the battery is very low or even dead, it still has to be connected. If the battery is removed it breaks the circuit and stops the command that lets the engine start. After the new battery was installed it would crank but not start, the dealership told me that I had to have it towed to them to have the comp reset, which would have cost around $150 total. Thankfully a mechanic friend of mine had a diagnostic machine and was able to reset it for me - cost me a case of beer. He then showed me a (not so simple) trick around this for the future. Once it is running again remember this. 1 Have the new battery and jumper cables ready, 2 Loosen the battery terminals on the dead battery but DON'T take them off. 3 Connect jumpers to the car battery cables and to the new battery, like you were jump starting from just the new battery. 4 Remove the terminal cables from the dead one in the car and remove dead battery (be careful not to let them come off the cables OR the good battery) it's OK if it disconnects briefly, but reconnect it A.S.A.P. 5 Put the new battery in and connect the terminals BEFORE removing jumper cables. Once they're on the terminals just take away the jumpers and tighten the nuts. That's how you change a battery without letting the car ever lose power. Hope that helps Jose. Good luck, safe driving.

Car running fine cut it off now want start make noises like battey is low but wont jump start


That's usually a corroded, burnt, crusty or loose battery terminal (connector), post, nut or wire. A seasoned mechanic knows how to check, tighten and clean all battery connection points and that lousy cheap cables can prevent a successful jump. You can check your battery in another car to see if it has the cold cranking amps necessary. A starter and a battery usually will go intermittent before going totally bad. it is dangerous around explosive fumes, such as a charging battery or fuel, but pass-touching or bumping the pos/neg jumper cables together for a quick test of battery and/or cable power has been the old way of testing for good power at the cables and battery. A good connection will spark very bright and loud - experience a good battery a few times and it is easily learned. Jumping from another battery without running the jumper engine will take a much stronger jump battery, even with good cables - starting the jumper car and letting it charge the dead battery for 3 or 4 minutes is usually enough for a good battery to come back enough to allow start. (Leave the cables on for the start attempt). Don't accidentally touch the cables together while still connected to either battery, they can fuse/weld and burn. Battery acid is toxic, smelly, explosive and will eat holes in your clothes. Don't drop a battery. Don't overcharge a battery, if it smells it is dangerous. I always blow away fumes as I am connecting battery cables. I turn off everything in the car when connecting them.

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.

Where is negative connection for battery on 2006 dodge charger srt8


Also, to add to some mild confusion, the terminals under the hood on the charger are just there for a jump, thus there is only a positive terminal. The battery is actually stored in the trunk next to the spare.

Connecting Jumper Cables to Battery Terminals


the positive terminal is covered by a red plastic cap that must be pulled off then attach the red or positive jumper cable there then attach the ground or black cable to either a bolt on the brace that is in your way or the alternator bracket or another bracket that is attached to the engine block or frame directly without any rubber mounting bushings and preferably not painted.
