THERE IS A PLUG THAT CAN BE PURCHASED AT SOME AUTO PARTS STORES. IT HAS A DOUBLE-ENDED CIGARETTE LIGHTER PLUG. THIS CORD CAN BE USED TO BOOST A CAR'S BATTERY. IF YOU ARE GOOD AT SPLICING, YOU CAN PROBABLY MAKE ONE UP WITH A DECENT GAUGE WIRE. HOPE THIS SOLVES THE PROBLEM. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED, THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

I have 2002 toyota prius that is totally dead- battery is charged


Hello,
In the fuse box under the hood near the headlight open the cover, open the red cover with the plus sign on it, it should be 12 volts or so there, if not then either the battery in the trunk is dead or the fuse on the positive terminal is blown. If there is voltage at that point there is another fuse or two blown in the fuse box, check the higher amp fuses, the 120A main fuse, the DC fuse, use a voltmeter or test light to check.

What cause the battry light to stay on when driving?


The battery is not charging. Check the drive belt is not slipping, otherwise it could be an alternator fault.

Battery removed now cannot open hood


There is a pull out tab in the fuse box located in the driver foot well. It's a red rectangular block, pull it out to expose the metal clip. Put a battery charger or other source of + 12 volts on the clip, and the negative end on a ground (has to be a good ground, try the bolt on the door). then activate the hood release switch.

I have a 1989 F-150 with a hidden electical short. The battry is drained if I leave it connected for 2 days or more and don't drive the truck. I found a similar question here, the response was to...


HERE IS HOW TO CHECK FOR A BATTERY DRAIN. TURN OFF ALL SWITCHES, MAKE SURE THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT IS CLOSED & THAT THE LITE INSIDE IS GOING OUT .RAISE THE HOOD, DISABLE THE UNDER HOOD LIGHT. CLOSE ALL THE DOORS TIGHT. MAKE SURE ALL COURTESY LIGHTS ARE GOING OUT. GET A 12 VOLT CIRCUIT TESTER, { A SEE THROUGH ICEPICK WITH A LIGHT INSIDE }. REMOVE THE NEG BATTERY CABLE, PUT ONE END OF THE TESTER ON THE NEG BATTERY POST. PUT THE OTHER END OF THE TESTER ON A GOOD GROUND. IF THE TEST LIGHT LIGHTS UP THAT SAYS THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. IF THE LIGHT IS ON. START PULLING FUSES ONE AT A TIME FROM THE FUSE/ RELAY BOX NEAR THE BATTERY. WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT THAT IS THE DRAINING CIRCUIT. YOU MAY WANT TO DISCONNECT THE ALTERNATOR. ALTERNATORS CAN CHARGE THE BATTERY WHEN THE MOTOR IS RUNNING & IF SOMETHING IS WRONG INSIDE THEY CAN DRAIN THE BATTERY WHEN STOPPED OVERNIGHT.

I can't find where the fuse box for the radio for corolla 2006


Pg. 250 of your 2006 Owner's Manual shows the location of the Fuse Boxes. There is one under your hood on the driver's side and the other is under the dash just to the left of steering wheel. Pg 272, will show you how to replace the fuses. Pg. 286-287 gives a diagram and description of each fuse and what part of the electrical system it enables. 

I blew a fuse while using my Cigarette lighter/power outlet to inflate my tires. It took out the power to the car stereo, the clock below it, and the two Cigarette lighter/power outlets. 

This portion of the electrical system correspondeds to the fuse in position 32 on pg. 287 of the manual. 

Your going to have to get on your back with a flashlight and open up the fuse box under the dash by the steering wheel. The lid of the fuse box shows the positions of the fuse and their amperage rating. Like I said, replace the fuse in postion 32 (15 Amp). There is a spare 15 Amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood (easy to get to, see the diagrams in the owner's manual). There is also a fuse puller tool next to the spare fuses. 


I hope you would be able to find the radio Fuse. 
Any further questions regarding replacement, feel free to contact me.

Thanks for using Fixya.
