Have a 2002 echo 4 door my son took out battery to use in his jeep then he put it back in the echo now it won't turn over all dash light are on I hear a buzzing noise inside transmission pan

Probably is a bad battery. Most of them start to die after 1 1/2 to 2 years. Try to use a jump start or another battery to verify. Good luck.

2003 Toyota echo flashing battery light after installation of new battery.

The battery light indicates, when lit, that the charging system (alternator), is not supplying enough power to run the vehicle and thus is draining the battery of power. Under normal conditions this should never happen. Have your charging system checked.

Install new car battery

Always remove the negative terminal first, then remove the positive terminal, undo the fixing clamp and lift the battery out. Keep the battery upright and away from your cloths, it contains dilute sulphuric acid. Fitting the new battery, clamp in place, connect the positive terminal first and the negative last, make sure both terminals are tight. Job done, might need to recode the radio, if it's a coded type. Take the old battery down the tip, don't just put it in the waste.

I think you answered your own question

You have a 12 year old car & the cost to
have that problem diagnosed, is not going
to be pleasant.

Only a very experienced repair shop or a dealer,
will be able to determine what was damaged

I would set a price to car value, on what you would
spend before parting with it.

You can't spend $1,500 unless you want to, for
a vehicle repair with whatever it's current value is

You need to remove the stabilizer bar and the hangers in the sub frame.Once you have the sway bar completely off you can remove the old bushings and then spray the bar with penetrating oil and put the new bushings in their place,where the old ones bolt everything and you're done.

All gauges went dead while driving, lights progressively dimmed and finally engine quit.

Your alternator died. You drove until your battery died also. You need a new alternator and a new battery. You might be able to get away with just charging your battery. Do Not jump start the vehicle and let the new alternator try to charge the old battery! Take the battery to a service station for testing and a charge. Install the new alternator and then install the charged battery not vice versa and you'll be fine.

Check the new battery posts(connections if side terminal) alot of the battery companies put a protective coating on and it has to be removed. Use wire brush or sandpaper to clean them and you should be fine.

Original battery do I get it off

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about removing the old battery. Nearly every place that will sell you a battery will install it for free. I can fix the cars, but why bother if they are willing to do it for free!

Good Luck and God Bless

Ok, before I give you a suggestion, I want to let you know that I'm not an expert on cars or anyhting, but I have been focred to fix A LOT of problems with my vehicles over the years to save money, and this is a situation I ran into twice. Once on a 1994 Buick Skylark Coupe, and another time on a 1992 Chevy Corsica. What I learned is that if you hook jumper cables up to your car and it starts, there is USUALLY one of two things wrong with it. Either you have a dead battery (which you don't because it's new), or you have a bad alternator. Because the car stays running after it's jumped, everything points to a bad battery or battery connection. Have you tried replacing the connectors on your battery cables? I know it sounds like a shot in the dark, but I've tried that before out of desperation and it has worked. I'm pretty sure your alternator is ok, or your car would die when the red positive jumper cable was removed, so I'd replace the connectors on the battery calbes in your car, especially if you have never replaced them before. If that doesn't work, if it was me, I'd take it in and have it looked at. Like I said, I'm not an expert by far, so I can only trouble-shoot to a point. Hope this helps, or at least gives you something to try.
