  1. Connect a positive jumper cable clamp to the positive (+) battery terminal on your vehicle.
  2. Connect the clamp on the other end of the positive cable to the positive (+) battery terminal on the second vehicle.
  3. Connect a negative cable clamp to the negative (-) battery terminal on the second vehicle.
  4. Connect the clamp at the other end of the negative cable to a solid, stationary, unpainted metallic point away from the battery and any moving parts, as shown in the illustration.
  1. Start the engine of the second vehicle. Increase the engine speed slightly and maintain at that level for approximately 5 minutes to recharge the battery of your vehicle.
  2. Vehicles with a smart key system only: open and close any of the doors of your vehicle with the engine switch off.
  3. Vehicles without a smart key system: maintain the engine speed of the second vehicle and start the engine of your vehicle.

    Vehicles with a smart key system: maintain the engine speed of the second vehicle and start the engine of your vehicle by turning the engine switch to ignition on mode.

  4. Once the vehicle’s engine has started, remove the jumper cables in the exact reverse order from which they were connected.

Once the engine starts, have the vehicle inspected at your toyota dealer as soon as possible.

Starting the engine when the battery is discharged

The engine cannot be started by push-starting.

To prevent battery discharge

Charging the battery

The electricity stored in the battery will discharge gradually even when the vehicle is not in use, due to natural discharge and the draining effects of certain electrical appliances. If the vehicle is left for a long time, the battery may discharge, and the engine may be unable to start. (The battery recharges automatically during driving.)
