    Not even turning over now? you've checked all connections at starter etc? I assume Grandpa will guide you in right direction, so let us know if help needed.

    Either the alternator is not charging, you have a bad connection, or you have a big current draw on system when sitting. That's providing battery is good. Do you have access to a DC voltmeter or multimeter & a 12 volt test light?

The only reason that a battery will go flat is if its not getting a charge from the alternator, the brand new battery you purchased might be a little faulty but i cant see it. has your ride got abnormal stereo in it or aything unusual such as lots of dvd players n such as these can make it so your standard alternator cant charge quick enough before releasing to the equipment.

Where is the fuse box for a 95 toyota celica gt

There are 2 fuse boxes. One is inside the vehicle, driver's side, right in front of your left knee if sitting in the seat. Remove small cover to access. The second is under the hood behind the battery. 3 metal clips hold the lid down.

1985 celica GT battery and brake lights stay on. don't drive it often and after a few months of inactivity, have to re-charge the battery. The battery is fairly new.

Small drain on battery from radio, clock etc, will draw it down over that much time, so even a small charger, or short drive once in a while, (little more often) will keep it up if all is working on charging system. Check brake fluid level, as well as try pushing emergency brake handle down, to see if maybe that just sticking. be careful not to pull it too far as it may be partially seized from sitting too much. Let me know what you find.

1983 toyota celica wont hold charge

Be sure that your stereo is okay. Couple of times the stereo goes bad not that it won't work well but the stereo will be shorting the power on the battery whenever the car is idle.

Good luck.
