Question about Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

The battery on my 95 toyota corolla keeps dying. I replaced the battery but it still keeps happening. My buddy and I tested the battery and the alternator with a voltmeter, and found the readings to be normal. With the engine off, we checked all of the fuses and found that the EFI fuse was drawing a current of 12.48 volts. I asked on this forum whether or not this is the cause of the drain. I received a solution saying that is the case. I took it to the mechanic, and he told me there was no draw. He told me I was activating the fuse when I took a reading. Is this mechanic lying to me? Could I be activating this fuse when I take a reading with the voltmeter?

1999 Toyota Tacoma battery keeps dying

This is easy to test but you need a multimeter. Connect the multimeter to the battery and run the engine at a fast idle (say 2000 rpm). You should get a voltage reading anywhere from 14 to 15 volts if the battery is fully charged and the alternator is working. If the reading is around 12 volts, then the alternator is not working.

Where is the starter of toyota corolla 95 and how do i remove it?

Locate the battery. (right side front engine bay) look down and to the left. see that little cylinder with the fat wire going to it? that's the starter. Its in between the transmission front side, and the radiator. You should be able to see the long bolts going into it from the back side of the starter. First remove your battery and set it aside then open the plastic access cap to get to the terminal. Remove the wiring. once wires are free of starter, remove the long bolts. slide starter towards the right of the engine bay. It should be free now and in your hand, ready to be tested or replaced. To test it, get a second person to help. get a set of jumper cables. connect the negative side of the battery to the metal casing of the starter and connect the positive side of the jumper cable to the places where you removed the wires. Hook up the negative battery lead of the jumper to the negative battery terminal. Touch the positve lead to the positve terminal. Warn your buddy before doing this because the starter will try to twist as it spins up. If the starter spins, and you see the gear (throwout) push forward towards the tip, then starter is okay. Do this test, let me know what happens, and I can tell you what to check next.

you should get the battery tested. Alot of them fail this time of yesr. Once you determine the battery and have the alternator tested then you beging to daignose deeper. Most people are not aware that even tho an alternator is charging it can have an internal diode short that can cause the battery to drain when the car is sitting with no key in it.

On my 1998 Toyota Corolla, after it starts and runs turn the key off and it will not start again without a jump. After a quick jump it starts right away. The battery is only a year old. Is it the...

Check for loose battery terminals. Car will not start without jump because battery is not connected properly. Starter is probably good or car would not start with or without jump. If alternator is bad and not producing current, car would die after running a short while as battery would out of juice and without alternator current the car would die - so probably alternator is good. If connections are all good, get a voltmeter and test the battery voltage - it should be over 12.75 volts. If not, battery is not holding charge.

1995 Toyota Corolla 1.9 Automatic. Starter clicks, but no spin. Tested good at parts store (bench test). Cables and ground cleaned and good.

95 Corolla is either 1.6 or 1.8.

Wire the starter straight to the battery to test. If it turns, then it means the starter connections are no good.

Test the battery voltage.
