Question about Toyota Corolla
Posted by Anonymous on
Battery very weak
Alternator not working
Bad connections at battery posts, or bad connections on ground cable
If you can jump the car to start it, and it will stay running, take it to Advance Auto, Auto Zone, O'Reilly's, etc and have them test your battery/alternator.

If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.

Sounds like a basic bad battery. Even though its not that old it can be bad....and probably under warranty. Immobilizer or starter will not cause that. Get the bat tested.
Only other thing is called a "parasitic draw". This is when something is drawing current from the battery when its supposed to be off. Usually this causes a totally dead battery, not a weak one like you have.

I dig the VW... good choice of car. Since you changed the battery, you may consider checking the terminals again. You may not have tightened them sufficiently. Lights and radios use a very small amount of power, but the starter uses several hundred amps. Any poor connection will result in a dramatic reduction in voltage and amps for the starter. Check those connections and tighten them down. If you have a terminal cleaner, clean both terminals again. They have a wire brush on two ends and cost about $5 at the local auto parts store. On Volkswagen, the starter solenoid is located inside the starter and is not servicable. If this is failing you will need a new starter (about $250 installed). Also, VW have a starter relay on the relay panel. I have never personally seen one of these fail on a latemodel VW, but I wouldn't rule it out. Some aftermarket batteries have smaller posts than the OEM posts... this could also be the cause for the bad connection. The bolt may be tightened all the way, but it's still not gripping enough. If that's the cause, back the bolt out all the way. GENTLY, hammer the terminals onto the battery as far as they will go, then replace the bolt and tighten with tools. Anyway, your symptoms point to bad connection on the terminals and your recent battery replacement kind of confirms this. Good luck.
