I had the same problem just before my car quit. Testing indicates solenoid so far but could have something to do with the CCRM, hope not.

    You have a short. As long as the alternator still charges you have time to locate it. Depending on where it is it could eventually ground out.

Depending on rpm the alternator is maybe not putting out enough voltage.
output should be 13.8 to 14.4 volts.
check the battery,the charge voltage and the wiring and the connector to the alternator,and make sure the alternator belt is tight enough,(it is part of the serpentine belt.
have the battery load tested.

Hi. Just got 2012 Camry. There are blinking blue lights behind the mirror. OK to leave them like that? It is night time now. Thank you. Concerned.


Indicator LED's can run for a very long time. It will not kill a battery that's in good shape for weeks. During long term storage, it's recommended the battery is disconnected. If these are the courtesy lights in the side mirrors, the lights will turn off on their own.

the red light drain 0.001amp. from you battery.need 1000 hour to drain 1 amp. test the battery if is any good. do drain test on the car.rust and short will drain battery overnight.after market equipment,light in the trunk or glove box, under hood light etc. disconnect the battery and install amp meter. do the drain test. your computers uses 0.2-0.4amp when sleep.anything over 0.5-.6 amp is bad. after you connect the amp meter give 1min. to turn all systems to sleep mode.Is normal the first minute to be high drain.
ones you know something is wrong disconnect the fuses one at the time and note if any changes. if the fuse you disconnect turn the amps low note what system is connected to the fuse and you will know were is the problem

Wont start, security light keeps blinking


Turn the ignition switch to the on position and let the light blink. It should stop in about 10-20 minutes. then you can start the engine. if the light does not stop blinking likely the key switch is bad or, (less likely the module). Make sure your battery is in good condition when doing this or it wii kill the battery before the coding is complete (use a jumper to a good battery if necessary but don't turn the other vehicle on)

We replaced the car's battery and now the dash board lights blink


Under the dash on drivers side is the black box for the security system. If you look on the box there is a little red button. Push the button for a couple of secounds and it will click and stop your marker lights and dash lights from flashing. It is a stock anti theft part of the security system. Hope this helps.

Battery light blinking


The battery light shining means that your battery is not charging while you are driving, The light blinking means that the altenator(Component that Charges the battery) is faulty, It couls also be a sliping belt since the altenator is drivin by a V belt, Check the belt tensioner and if the problem persist have the altenator checked out.
