New 2012 Toyota Highlander won't start

Asked by May 14, 2012 at 11:36 AM about the 2012 Toyota Highlander Base V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We bought our 2012 Toyota Highlander 8 months ago. Its been wonderful driving it. Took it to Toyota dealer for
routine 6 month maintenance. We even drove it on several long & short trips since. This morning when I tried to
start the car, the engine's not turning on.  Tried the remote starter key even -instead of the sound indicating the
engine turning on,I hear a faint buzzing.  The battery indicator on the display shows red.
What could be the problem??How can there be an issue with battery so soon???Im feeling totally depressed- Can
someone pls help??

Sounds like your battery has a shorted cell. It happens. With it being so new, it probably is under full warranty replacement. Call the dealership to arrange someone to come out and replace it or schedule a tow.

Most likely something with the battery or maybe ignition.
