Toyota Genuine Parts - Battery

Back

What do they do?

Provide power to start your Toyota in any weather, year after year.


The battery supplies power to the necessary components that use electricity including the starter motor, electrical & ignition system and various lamps such as headlamps and stop lamps, computers, wipers, audio system and more.


When to service?

Battery service and comprehensive electrical charging system evaluation should be performed according to the manufacturer's required maintenance schedule.


Car batteries require regular inspection and maintenance, which involves checking the fluid level; checking that terminal clamps are attached properly; and checking that the battery clamps are holding the battery securely.


Batteries should last for years, but if your vehicle is hard to start and/or has dim headlights when the engine is turned off, are the signs that your battery is getting weak and requires attention, should be replaced with a new battery.


This service helps avoid potential no-start conditions which are a concern to owners due to the inconvenience caused by such a failure, especially given our extreme weather conditions.

Battery Basics

Toyota Genuine batteries are high performing. That means they are specifically suited to Toyota vehicles.


We rely on batteries to withstand the heavy demands of normal vehicle usage - to get us through hot summer and cold winter morning starts and keep delivering our comforts like electric windows, audio and navigation and air conditioning. Toyota Genuine batteries are high quality and reliable, and with regular battery maintenance checks you can maximise their life and performance.


  • Check that fluid levels are right
  • Check that the terminal clamps are tightly attached to the battery
  • Check that the battery clamps are securely holding the battery in place


Take extra care with batteries older than three years...


Toyota can test your battery

Each time your car receives a scheduled service at a Toyota Service Centre, a Toyota Technician inspects the battery electrolyte level and checks the terminals and clamp for tightness. The Technician also conducts a diagnostic test on the strength of charge and general condition of the battery for you.

That means we can identify a battery that is about to fail before it leaves you stranded. If necessary, a new Toyota Genuine battery that is appropriate for your vehicle and driving conditions can be recommended and installed on the spot - to help you get back on the road right away.



Avoid a dead battery

Remember to turn off your headlights and interior lights when the engine isn't running.

Take the car out for long drives on a regular basis - short trips that constantly require the engine to be turned off and restarted will drain your battery without allowing the vehicle's electrical charging system sufficient time to recharge the battery. Leaving your car inactive for a prolonged time will slowly discharge the battery.
