06 Camry won't start

Asked by Oct 03, 2016 at 09:28 AM about the 2006 Toyota Camry CE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my wife left her keys in the ignition all day with
the keys turned to the on position. Of course the
battery died so I charged the battery this morning
and then jump started the car and the vehicle
started working. Since it was working I left the
vehicle running to help charge the battery. When I
came back out the vehicle shut off and now seems
to not be receiving any power inside the vehicle i.e.
No light when you open the door and does nothing
when you try to start the car. The battery is reading
at 98 and alternator was just changed about 90
days ago. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

"battery reading 98"???? does not computer with me. Where did that reading come from? Seems to me ...it's time to service/test the battery. Special equipment is usually required. A proper jump start and trip to AutoZone might result in a FREE Battery Test. Suggest you call them up first to verify.

Check the security system, it maybe activated. If the battery was totally dead it would have needed to be charged overnight to bring it back if it was good so then it could have fried the new alternator cause they are not designed to charge a dead or very weak battery the next thing is the body control module will loose the presets if the battery is drained or removed, so then the vehicle will have to hauled to the dealer and be reflashed to bring the accessories back.
