Battery/alternator/cranking

Asked by Jul 24, 2016 at 10:51 AM about the 2000 Toyota Camry XLE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car would not start. Clicking sound. Started
immediately with a jump. I went straight to
AutoZone and they replaced 3 year old battery.  
Three days later same thing. My mechanic replaced
alternator with OEM alternator, along with timing
belt which was due on Scheduled Maintenance. 3
days later same thing. My local mechanic said that
the battery was at 14 volts w/o A/C on, but
dropping to 12.4-5 with A/C on while should be at
about 13 volts. He couldn't figure it out so I took it
to a Toyota dealer. They checked system and told
me their test showed 12.9 volts w/ A/C on and
charging system tested normal. That was last
Monday. 4 days later, Friday, rrrr, rr,, click click click.

Help!!!

It sounds like you have a parasitic draw. Something is draining your battery overnight. In the morning when you go to start it, it will crank a couple of times, then the battery is flat dead. Here is a video on how to locate the draw........................................................ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF1gijj03_0
