Hi,
You might want to have the alternator checked,a bad diode in the alternator is a very common source of battery drain.
If that checks good then the other replies are the right action.
Good Luck !!!!!!!!

Hook up an ammeter in line with the negative ground cable, (there should be no volts showing ideally, but YOU should see some action with the batt draining) then remove each fuse until you see the ammeter go to zero, this will be the circuit to look further at, probably a cracked or broken wire bleeding off the battery. Hopes this helps.

Pull the fuses one at a time, until you find the circuit,causing the issue You need an Ampere Meter in series with a battery cable to do that, or it will be a long time consuming process. Most likely, something like a relay, is not timing out or going to sleep.

Something is draining the battery wondering if I pulled the fuse for radio maybe that's what's draining the battery but don't know which fuse it would be. 2001 Toyota corolla


The radio fuse is in the fuse panel inside under the left side of the dash. It is marked on the fuse cover as Radio, clock. If the battery drains down fast, like overnight there is another problem, sometimes aftermarket alarm systems will drain the battery down. Check for any lights that may be staying on like the stop lights or interior lights.

1991 toyota camry, replaced battery, alternator, still drains battery. stalled and won't start now.


If something is draining the battery overnight, you need to check each circuit for a short to ground. You also need to make sure the alternator is charging the battery when the engine is running by checking it with a meter.

How do you remove the alternator from a toyota corrolla. I'm having trouble getting to the bottom bolt.


You have to jack up the car and remove the bottom plastic guard under the eng-sump and then it will be easy to get to the bottom bolt.But make sure to dissconnect the battery cable from the battery?

My 1991 Toyota Previa has been sitting and now won't start.


You need to check a couple of things. If your car has been sitting, then it could be any of a number of problems. Check to make sure that you have the three things your car needs to run. 1. Air- is the air filter clean with no blockages like mouse nests on the intake side and also in the exhaust pipe!! 2. Fuel- Do you hear the fuel pump kick on for 2 seconds when you first turn the ignition to the run positon? If not, your fuel pump could be suspect. 3. Spark- If you have air and fuel, but no spark, then your ignition system is under investigation. Be methodical you need all 3 of these things for the car to run, without any one them your stuck!
Hope this helps you out!! Try running the car on propane, if it runs beautifully, then you know it's a fuel delivery problem.

"it always dies if it dont drive it for 3 days or more,"

Sounds like you have a constant drain on your battery -- when engine is off the drain kills the battery. That cause is almost always very difficult to find.

" wondering if there is a specific battery I should be looking for"

In terms of the type battery, no kind is going to withstand a constant drain (if you have one) -- I'd just get whatever battery they look up at the parts store.
