I would check all the earth wires to and from the battery, the heat may have melted some hence running for a short time, the thinner wires are the ones to check as they cannot take 100amps and often melt or stick together.

It's worth a look before you buy any more parts.

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.

Low power on toyota 2007 camry. Do I need to reset by reinstalling the new battery?


The fuse and relay box is located in the engine bay area. Please lift up the cover by pressing front and rear locks, and find the ECTS fuse (10 Amp). Location and diagram of the fuse is printed underside the cover. Remove the fuse, check the fusible link. Replace it with the same rating, if it is blown.
After replacing the fuse, remove the EFI fuse in the same relay box or remove the battery terminal for 10 Sec.
Fix the fuse back to its place or reconnect the battery terminal.
Start the car. It should now perform well.
If the problem persists, retrieve the error code and put it here.
Hope that works.

I have been away and left my 2008 Prius in the garage. Upon returning 3 weeks later, the battery is dead. Is it able to be jump started?


Yes. See your owners manual but the terminal for jumping it is in the fuse box under the hood on your right as you are facing the engine.

I replace the battery in our 2003 Element and put the wrong cables on the terminals. The battery fuse blew. I corrected my mistake. I replace the 100 amp fuse with an 80 amp fuse. I could not find a 100...


There could be a lot of severe damage to the electrical system including blown computer modules. I would refer the problem to a professional shop in your area.

I disconnected the battery to clean the terminals and it will not start


does it make any noise, click or engine turn over?
if you do not have any of that then re-check the cable and battery terminals.
if engine turn over but not runs then you may have a blown fuse

A piece of metal fell of my phone charger into the cig lighter and caused a spark. I pulled over and the radio, odometer and lights would not work. Then after the car was put in park, i could not get it...


check for blown fuses in fuse boxes under dash on left & under hood.check for a blown 'fusible link' a wire leading from battery + terminal to the electrical box near the battery.a fusible link is a wire designed to 'melt' in case of a short.outside of link will appear blistered,and a new one needs to be soldered in it's place.

Toyota Prius starting problem


There's a known problem with the early Toyota Prius (2001 - 2003), when running the engine for a long period of time without moving or when the car is driven only for short trips (short city driving), the Prius might not start.

You have to change the original battery with a 356 CCA which is bigger because the battery is bigger you also have to change what is holding it into place.
