Question about 2008 Toyota Avalon

2 Answers

I have a 2008 toyota avalon limited. No problems

I have a 2008 toyota avalon limited which I purchased new in October of 2007. No problems until this past Wed. I had left it for 3 days in an airport parking lot and it would not start. It was making a clicking noise and some of the interior lighting was coming on. I called AAA and they jump started me and also checked the battery which they said was still in good shape. Car did great last couple of days but I just went out to start it and it is doing the same thing again - clicking noise, some lights are coming on but not starting up - Any suggestions -

Needs a battery, or you have a draw pulling it low.

I think your battery is the problem. It is not holding its charge and seems ok when you are running the car regularly but as soon as it stands for any time it runs down. If the battery is around 3 years old it is to be expected but if you are unsure you can have it tested properly by an auto store specialist who sells batteries. The battery needs to be fully charged and they load test it. This is a special meter that loads the battery and checks its output.

2008 Toyota Avalon Battery Problem

I doubt this is a smart key problem, the key uses a chip and its own battery. Something in the car is causing a drain, a light is staying on possibly. Trunk light, glove box light, under hood light... maybe you have a portable GPS unit plugging into the auxilary port? Just a thought. This is not a common problem that has been reported by Avalon owners as of yet.
