2000 - battery light comes and won't turn over

Taking over this car and the battery would not turn over the engine. The battery light is on and no other indicators lights are on. Used some one elses battery and it started right up. Removed that battery and took mine to be charged. Battery was dead.

Got another good battery and installed but it would not turn over. everything turns on but the battery light still comes on. I think the prson that took the battery out did something to it.

Does anyone know where I can get a layout of the fuses and relays. I don't have an owners manual and the identifier sheet is missing.

    What I really need a owners manual that shows the lay out of the fuses and relays and which is which. I think some one took one out.

    The battery I put it was tested and charged. The engine never would turn over. i was told that the OEM was not getting power.

    Would anybody have owners manual that they could fax the pages that show the relay and fuse layout. 843-628-4595 is my efax.

    If you can send thoses layouts that would be grate. The fuse bos is missing the paper with the names for each fuse.

The "battery light" is an indicator lamp for the alternator that charges the battery.
Was the "good" battery you put in charged?
When the key is in the ON position (not running but on), the light should illuminate to show that the warning lamp bulb works, it should go off after starting the engine.
When the vehicle is running, if the the "battery" light is illuminated its a warning that the alternator is not charging the battery. A new alternator is needed here.

If the lamp goes off when running I suspect your battery is faulty.

    I can get u those pages tomorrow - I am at home now and all my ALLDATA is at work... I should be home early thoygh as its only forecast for 9Degrees tomorrow - I don;t want to work on cars in that temp!

    I would think that someone may have put the battery cables/jumper leads on backwards which will blow the ignition fuse.

    The fuses are often listed on the back of the fusebox lid.

    Note that there are often multiple fuseboxes in cars these days...under the dash, at the side of the dash where the door hinges are, under the hood in the fenderwells.

    I'll still get you the diagrams though for future reference.

    visual examination of the fuses wouldnt take long if u can find the fuseboxes....Later...Tim

    I need an e-mail address to send diagrams to.

    also I need the Year/Month from the label just inside the drivers door and the VIN number from there too.

    I assume its a 4 wheel drive.

    I'll mail u straight back...sorry for the time I've taken to get back to you but I am in the process of moving house!

Odometer won't work unless headlights turned off, radio lights dim, blinker won't blink all the time now battery light comes on but battery tests good. Intermittent issues getting worse. Horn

You probably have a bad ground in the electronic instrument cluster, or cluster connection to wiring harness. I would recomend you have a qualified auto tech diagnose it. It is not a easy fix.

1994 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner - won't start with new battery, lights won't come on

Check your battery connections on the battery and the other ends where they go the ground will go to the engine block and the positive to a solenoid make sure all of this is tight and has no corrosion. This is just a loose wiring problem

My starter on my 2000 Suziki quad makes a clicking sound and won't turn the engine over.

Either the starter will have to come out for testing, rebuilding, or replacing, or the battery is not strong enough to power the starter-maybe it's low on charge. Are all your battery and starter connections clean and tight? Verify the condition of your battery before you condemn the starter.

Why do i have engine block shape light on r.h.s. on my dash board of 2000 toyota sienna

That would be the 'check engine' light. This light comes on to indicate that there is an emission control malfunction detected by the vehicle's engine computer. This doesn't mean you need an oil change. When the light turns on, that means there is a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) stored in the engine computer. I would recommend taking it to a reputable shop for diagnosis. It could be something as simple as your gas cap being loose. I would not recommend taking it to an autozone or any other automotive parts house for a "free scan". Parts houses sell parts, not diagnose cars.

Xterra will not turn on. windows won't roll down, doors stays locked. won't roll over at all. odometer won't come up

Do you get any dash lights when you turn the key on? If not, you could just have a dead battery.
