Battery Replacement

20

Asked by Apr 24, 2016 at 11:41 PM about the 2005 Toyota Highlander Limited V6 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought a highly recommended (Consumer Reports)  replacement battery for my 2005 Toyota Highlander (type 24F and from Walmart of all places) and discovered the terminals are on the opposite sides from the current battery.  The cables simply won't reach.  Has anyone had this problem and are there cable extensions that will fix this?  Suggestions?

It should have been a 24 not a 24 F, your old battery should have the group number on it also. Adding extenders just makes the possibility of voltage drops more likely.

Thank you. The Consumer Reports articles I read did not mention that difference between 24 and 24F. I hope I can exchange the 24F battery for a 24.
