Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Left no lights on inside the car overnight. went to start the car the next morning and it would not turn over. lights on the dash worked, cabin light dim, consecutive tries to turn over the engine made the lights go dimmer or stop turning on altogether. Got a jump from someone and after 10 minutes, the car turned itself off.

Battery is likely dead. Check alternator for charge current. Suspect alternator has failed. If you have a voltmeter, check voltage at battery after jumpstart and removing jumper cables (I'm assuming the engine will run for at least a few seconds). Voltage should be at least 14 vdc. If not replace alternator. If you don't have a voltmeter, you can remove the alternator and take it to the parts store to be checked. Any more questions, please reply.

Sounds like on your first attempt to jump start the car the positive and negative cables were reversed blowing your main fuse. Your interior lights are usually controlled by a switch next to your speedometer or the dashboard. If the switch does not bring the lights/gauges back then it is possible that something else shorted and the vehicle would need to be taken in for service.

Nothing happens when I turn the ignition switch.


If you didn't do a load test on the battery, that is probably the problem - it may work properly under light load, but it is not uncommon for it to fail under heavy load, which can also cause a problem trying to jump start the car. If that is what's happening, replace the battery.

Well contact your dealer and tell them that your battery is gone bad for no reason and don't mention you let the light overnight because your battery is under warranty and they will put in a new one. Good luck

This should be done with everything turned off and the door closed. with negative battery disconnected. place 12 v test light between the battery terminal and the cable end.(on neg. side) if the light lites up there is a drain. remove one fuse at a time until u see the lite go out. that is the sytem the drain is on. usually glove box light or trunk light or visor light left on or stuck on.

2001 Pontiac Bonneville won't start


have you not left any load on overnight?..like park light or left the door partially open and the dome light would be left on?

have the battery recharge and the next night, make sure that no light would be left on the car.

if it would drain out again, have it recharged again, use it and on the night, make sure no light is left on the car, then remove the positive pole on the battery overnight.

the next morning, put the positive cable back and start the car.

if the car would start, then no problem with the battery, if the car would not start, then return the battery because it is defective.

tnx 4 using fixya,
