car won't start without a jump

Asked by Sep 13, 2016 at 12:31 PM about the 2001 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just replaced the starter in my 2001 Toyota Camry, but now the battery doesn't seem to be holding a charge. it will start with a jump and then run no problem. but turn it off for any duration of time and need to jump it again. would this be a battery or a alternator issue?

Bring it to Auto zone or a good parts store that will put a load test on the alternator for you to see if it is charging and putting out enough voltage.

Could be either one, do as "joemom" suggested.
