Toyota avalon 2000 battery flat ...put starter pack on battery start pack fully charged .....did not start car only clicked starter motor gone ?


Those starter packs are really for a boost . If your battery is dead
its better to replace it especially Toyota they seem to be finicky about a good stiff battery
if you have a multi meter put it on the battery terminals and have someone try to crank while observing the voltage
if the voltage drops below 10 volts usually that battery is on the road to letting you down

I have 2000 avalon. When my battery was dead, one door window was open. After having jump start, the window cannot be closed. And other door windows cannot be open either.


The doors/windows need to be re-programmed. Take your car to your Toyota service center and they will re-program the doors/windows.

Avalon won't start, fast clicking noises


Sounds like a dead battery issue. If someone can jump start you with battery cables connect red to red post on battery and black to your car frame or other ground. If the car starts easily it indicates a discharged battery. Then you need to determine why the battery is discharged. If you can drive to a local autoparts store they can use a machine to do a battery and charging system diagnosis at the curbside. Autozone, Advance, or Oreilly all do this. If the battery is the original from the car when purchased it is probably time to replace it. If its a new one (2 years or less) the culprit may be the alternator. The clicking noise is a dead give away that its a battery or alternator issue. The clicking by the way is the starter trying to engage and turn motor over to crank it. Its not getting enough power to turn the engine over (a tough task) and is clicking.

97 toyota avalon was running went dead while driving ,now wont start lights go dim,abs light and traction lights come on when jump started


Sound like you have a bad alternator, poss bad battery too.If you can jump start it with a volt meter check voltage at battery should have above 13.5 volts, do this after you unhook jumper cables and engine running.If bad voltage reading replace alternator make sure you charge battery before starting engine with new alternator or it could damage alternator.If good voltage have battery check.Hope this helped.

2001 Avalon was dead (battery). Won't start or jump


If the battery is fully charged there is but one thing tjst gives you those symtoms. You simply have a bad connection at the negativbattery cable. It won't hurt to ck the positive cable also. This os a common thing when a battery is connected and idle..Always disconnect the bat neg if the the vwhicle won't be used for more than two days. If possible, don't charge your dead battery with the alternator of the vehicle. It could very possibly cause charging problems. The clickinf is from insufficient voltage and jump stating with te dead battery still in place doesnt work because the goog and bad batteries are try to balance again, causing low voltage/amps to the starter. Good Luck. Sorry about the lesson, habit.
