Most parts stores carry these. if not may have to call your dealer. Good luck.

1996 tercel, charge the battery it will start then it will die after battery goes dead i put a new alternator on it replaced the charging system fuses and checked the wires i didn't replace the battery...


Hi,

Check if the alternator output is 13 volts to 14 volts or when the engine runs try to disconnect the negative (- ) terminal from the battery, if it still runs your alternator is okay. Just to check if that new alternator works.
If the procedure that I have told you is working, the battery must be brought to the nearest battery center, they have a load tester that will definintely assess the battery's condition if it really good or needs to be replace.

Hope that charge up the problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!

Toyota Tercel E3?


'91-'94 Tercels have the Single overhead cam 3EE Motor.
'95-'99 Tercels have the dual overhead cam 5E-FE Motor. A much improved engine in my humble opinion.
