Toyota Battery replacement

Asked by Apr 03, 2016 at 12:37 PM about the 2007 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced the battery on my 2007 Toyota
Camry LE now the engine will not start. All
dash lights come on but engine will not
crank or turn over. Somehow a security
feature is keeping the car from starting.
Does anyone know how I can reset this so
my car will start? I have to go to work soon

Use the key, and try locking then unlocking the drivers door, if the drivers door doesn't disarm it then try the passenger door and do the same thing.

Later model vehicles can do weird things if the battery power is completely removed causing you to have to go to a dealer to get it reflashed so everything will start working, this started happening in 2005 but not everyone jumped on at that time so hopefully your vehicle will be OK.

Thanks

You might also consider looking in the Owner's Manual for this vehicle. There may be a reset procedure you can perform. BTW does this vehicle have an After Market Alarm System installed?

After having to pay for a flatbed tow, found out somehow I blew a fuse upon installation of new battery. Total cost of battery replacement with towing, price of battery, and replacing the fuse... was $698.Ok will never do my own installation of anything on a Toyota ever...

Making an error upon the installation of an automotive battery these day is a common problem DIY make.. You only blew a fuse on this Toyota. You're lucky. These Cars these days are controlled by many computers. Toyota protects these computers by Blowing a Fuse when an error occurs. Chalk it up as another "Learning Experience"

698 bucks? just for a tow, a battery, and a fuse? How far was the tow? that sounds a little steep to me.

Car was only towed 2 miles to auto shop... feel like it was a ripoff but I needed my car so what choice did I have. The fuse was not the small kind it was a larger type... still too much $$$

I would get an itemized bill and just see just how they justified charging you that much money. It really sounds like they are taking advantage of you.
