I work for Toyota, and I will be glad to provide you with the actual answer:

The RAV/4 product is available in two models, a 4WD model and a 2WD model.
The difference between the two is on the 2WD model, there is no driveshaft going under the vehicle to the rear wheels, and no rear differential. There is no "RAV/2"; both models are called RAV/4's.

There is a lot of common confusuion about how the 4WD works. It is full time 4WD. In other words, it is always in 4WD. It does not "kick in/kick out/automatically engage", or anything like that. It is 4WD all of the time. But, when I say "4WD", that is sometimes mistaken for "all wheel drive", and, in this case, the RAV/4 is not "AWD". What this means is that if you raise the RAV/4 up on a lift, and put it in gear, 1 rear and the other side front tires will spin. True "all wheel drive" would have ALL 4 wheels spinning. This is not the case with the Rav/4. What the RAV does have, making up for not having "True AWD" on the 5 speed model, however, is a switch that locks the center differential in the transfer case, which, when engaged, applies a method of "locking" the 4WD system for maximum traction, but it is still not AWD. The automatic version doe not have this ability.
The last "true AWD" vehicle for purchase was a 1970's International Scout.
If you are considering purchasing a RAV/4, that is a very good investement. They hold their value quite well, and are virtually bulletproof; I do not make any "money" off my RAV/4 customers...
Just "gas station work". Very nice cars. I hope that this helps you, please feel free to comment back with any otherr questions...Glad to be of assistance.

I can get you a diagram on monday but it goes from the alternator to the power steering pump then around the tensioner pulley then around the crank pulley then to the a/c compressor then pull on the tensioner to give you some slack and slip it on the waterpump.I hope that helps.Let me know if you still need the diagram

SOURCE: 2006 Toyota Rav 4-My battery went from fine to dead in :45. Help.

Answering your questions in order:

  1. No, there's no such device to prevent the car from starting; a battery that requires a jump start would require more than 5 minutes running time to recharge. The battery needs to be charged to work again, (unless it has a dead cell, inexpensive battery testers will confirm). A jump start is still possible but wouild require leaving the jumper cables on for at least 15-30 minutes to provide enough of a charge to start the Rav again. Charging on a battery charger is preferable.
  2. Yes; short trips and lack of use will kill a battery over time.
  3. Yes; Here is a link to the basics of checking a charging system http://www.aa1car.com/library/charging_checks.htm
In summary, most should get more than 3 years out of their battery. You've already determined that the acid levels in the battery are good (most don't even check for fluid levels). Constant charging and discharging will kill a battery and this isn't apparent in your case.
If a battery charger isn't handy, try hooking up the jumper cables and leave the other car running for at least 15 minutes. I hope this answers your questions. Best of luck.

System charging at 16 volts and steadily increasing, when measured at battery or alternator. New battery and alternator. No failed fuses. Connectors on alternator wiring appear to be in good shape.


The alternator should not exceed 14.5 volts, if this happens you should check the alternator voltage regulator,If it is new, have it checked by the seller

1978 chev k10 alternator output 14.4 on bench, reads 9 amps on truck gauge 12.2 on ampmeter at battery with truck running why


amps reading on the truck amp meter is the current that is being generated to run everything as well as charge a battery that will be at best around 80% charged.bench testing an alternator gives these readings as the regulator is feeding into fully charged batteries with no draw on the system. When batteries are 100% charged the charge rate will be as low as 2 amps but in a car where there is a current draw for the ECM , ignition , fuel pump and what ever the alternator feeds these first before it charges a battery. You used a amp meter to get a voltage reading which is reading the voltage drop across the current draw. If you had used a voltmeter (multimeter) then you would see a voltage increase with the rpm increase. The

The car didn't start without a jump, first time: then it wouldn't go over 20 and seemed to have a mind of it's own.


SOUND LIKE ALTERNATOR NOT CHARGING BATTERY.CHECK ALTERNATOR VOLTAGE OUT PUT AT THE BATTERY WITH ENGINE IDLING VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS. IF NOT ALTERNATOR VOLTAGE REGULATOR FAULTY. CHECK ALTERNATOR 80 AMP FUSE FIRST.ALSO MAKE SURE ALTERNATOR BATTERY FEED WIRE AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRES IN PLACE TIGHT AND WIRES NOT DAMAGED.MAKE SURE ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT HAS CORRECT TENSION NOT SLIPPING.TO KEEP FROM LOCKING OUT RADIO TURN OFF RADIO FIRST BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY WHEN YOU GET READY TO REPAIR ALTERNATOR.

No problems starting car (92 Camry) but 'Charge' light came on and stayed on. It has never done this before. Drove home (about 30 minutes), light stayed on the whole time. No hope of getting anyone to...


you can check the alternator by using a digital voltage meter (usually can be found for less than $15)-voltage at rest (after sitting overnight) should be about 12.5 volts, running should be around 15 volts at startup, dropping down to around 14 at idle. Measure at the battery terminals and the back of the alternator, readings should be pretty much identical. I suspect your alternator is bad-you have a Nipondenso alternator, I just replaced my neighbor's and got a rebuilt unit for less than $100, they are very easy to replace by the way. You should check a few things first before getting another alternator-there are charging fuses and relays in the power center under the hood and by the driver's left foot-check them, just in case one has blown. Also, there is an 80 amp fuse right off the positive terminal of the battery-it is bolted into place, you have to disconnect the battery and the sides of the housing for this fuse has plastic 'doors' on the side you pop open for access to the bolts that hold the 80 amp fuse-remove the outer fuses, remove the bolts, it then just pulls out. You can find these fuses at most parts stores for less than $4.

To get yourself by if you can't get an alternator or don't want to replace it yourself, you can buy a battery charger (needs to be a 10 amp charger, automatic is better since it will not overcharge your battery, about $30 or less)-hook it up to your battery when you are not going anywhere, and you will be able to take SHORT trips, running strictly off the battery. If you use lights your ability to travel will be shortened considerably-even using the radio is using battery reserve, so limit all accessories (heater fan too) and don't travel too far, you can only do this for a brief time.

Battery light on, replaced alternator and battery. How can I reset the light??


THE BATTERY LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT BY JUST STARTING THE VEHICLE. IS THE BELT OK? PUT A DC VOLTMETER ON THE BATTERY, WITH THE MOTOR RUNNING, THE VOLTAGE SHOULD READ BETWEEN 13.90 & 14.80. ABOVE 14 IS BETTER. UNDER 13 THE BATTERY IS NOT BEING CHARGED. IF THE VOLTAGE IS OK & THE BATTERY LIGHT IS STILL ON, THE ALTERNATOR OR REGULATOR IS BAD. IT WOULD HELP IF I KNEW THE YEAR & MODEL OF THE VEHICLE. CHECK ALL THE FUSES BIG & SMALL IN THE FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD FIRST. REPLACE ANY BLOWN FUSES, RECHECK VOLTAGE. IF IT IS STILL LOW TEST ALL FUSES IN THE INTERIOR FUSE BOX.

2000 toyota rav 4 quits running when headlights are turned on


Take your Alternator off and bring it to your local auto parts place to test it for free. Tell them it works till you load it down with lights. The last one I took in that I knew was bad checked OK, bought the new one anyways and fixed the problem. (sometimes there's no telling). There is an alternator fuse in the box under the hood, but if that was bad (open) the battery wouldn't have gotten the slightest charge.

No charge to battery


IN ORDER:
Check the 120amp Alternator Fusible link#13 (for 2002 model) located in the fusible link block. (Note: a fusible link is a properly sized piece of wire that is designed to provide major protection when a short occurs) as regular fuses provide minor issue protection.

Check the 5amp ALT-S fuse as this directly affects charging.

Lastly check the 10amp IG2 fuse.

You may find that you have now have a spare alternator (your orginal that was ok) OR You can always sell it on ebay or craigslist.
