Question about 2002 Toyota Tundra

2 Answers

Occasionally when I start my 2002 tundra I get a single click and loose all power in my truck (no dome lights, clock etc.) If I wait a few minutes and try again it starts up and I have to reset my radio presets and clock to the correct time. this has happened 3 times now in about 1 year. Battery is less than a year old and truck has 150K Thanks

    is there corrosion on the battery posts ?

  • sheepdog0331 Jan 04, 2011

    I just checked, and I can't really tell if it has much corrosion since it is dark and I don't have a garage to pull into but I noticed that the negative terminal is loose enough for me to remove it from the battery post without tools. I will try repairing replacing that terminal tomorrow.

You are on to it. There is an intermittent connection at the battery. When you replace the terminal, wire brush the post too.

Best regards

My radio is loosing preset after turning off ignition. 2002 tundra


If you just installed the radio its possible the power wire for the radio memory and clock is not hooked up to a constant hot 12v source. Also if all wiring is correct its possible there a bad connection or contact check connecters.
I had the first problem with a JVC radio I installed once it did not have clear instructions on the always 12v hot wires.

Anyone have a picture of the alternator on an '03 Tundra V8? Trying to check output - losing battery V overnight.


Start the engine and check the voltage at the battery with a volt meter. It should read from 13.5 to 16 volts. If it reads out of this range the alternator is defective. If the output of the alternator is ok, then you have something that is on and is drawing power overnight. Dome light, under hood light, glove box, brake light, etc. It can also be a relay that is stuck as in a P/W relay.

My power window to my toyota tundra (2002)passenger window does not move up/down. Press switch, and no sound, no movement. what can I do to restore power?


try using the window switch on the pass side and drivers side. is the master turned on to allow the pass switch on? try closing the pass door while holding the switch in the DOWN position, sometimes this will jar the window loose. If you watch the dome light real closely while pushing the window switch down, it should dim slightly, it it does dim, then the switch is working.

Complete power loss - 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500


It sounds like either alternator or computer, I f you can get it to run on its own pull the positive battery cable off the battery and if it dies its your alternator. And this is no real way to check the computer except going up to a AutoZone and they can check codes for free

The throttle body needs cleaning. It has some carbon build up, and when the battery went dead the computer lost its learned values, one of which is base throttle position. Now its reset back to factory specs, not accounting for a dirty throttle body. Seen it a million times
