2020 Camry Dead Battery

Recommended Posts

I had a dead Battery about 2 weeks ago, and it took a jump and ran fine.  Then yesterday it was dead again and would not accept a jump.  Battery tested bad.

Like an idiot I took the Battery out to save some time and took the Battery to the service center for a replacement, but will also need to bring it in to see if there is a voltage drain anywhere.

Questions:

- Anyone hear of issues with batteries for the 2020 models?

- Any other issues with newer model Camrys and voltage drain?  Known issue?

Welcome to TOC 👍

We've had something similar on one of the new RAV4's which share the same drive train.

Hope that is of use.

I have the same problem with my 2020 camry. I had a dead Battery 2 weeks ago, I brought the car to the dealer and they said the Battery was fine. Today the Battery is completely dead. We're you able to find the problem?

Last rode my Camry 6 days ago.... went to get in it today and the Battery is dead, I assume. Doesn’t crank or anything and when I turn the headlights on they flash crazy fast. I love Toyota.... someone give some advice.  😩

I would be inclined to raise the issue with Customer Relations of your Toyota importer -  in the case of the OP, Toyota GB: 

https://www.toyota.co.uk/contact-us/

If dealers are not finding fault with the Battery, potential issues may not be being raised with the importer.

That's sound really bad.

And it makes me wonder, what makes the Camry (and RAV4) different from any other hybrid? Engine size 2,5 liter vs. 2.0 vs 1.8, but deep inside, it's the same.

An update on my 2020 Camry with a dead Battery. My car has been at the dealer for the last week, they are unable to find any issues. The Battery tested good and the vehicle did not have an abnormal paraseic draw. Through my frustration with this vehicle I remembered that every once in a while I would turn the vehicle off open the door and the door would chime at me. I am wondering if the body module will sometimes stay on and drain the Battery. Has anyone else noticed the chime?

We have had our Camry 3 months now. 1st time it has happened. However we recall the chime going off on us last night after we got out. Thus is a very real possibility. Are there any ways to avoid this issue?

Hi, definitely something is not right if the brand new Battery can’t hold charge for more than 3 days if not used, should be 30 days for etc or at least 3 weeks. If the car has no faults with inverter which I believe so than possibly Toyota had bad batch of batteries fitted to Camry, or as you mentioned chime warning. If you have user manual, if not online you can read it carefully and see if anything in settings can be change to prevent those chime and best is to switch off all auto interior lights. Also keep the key fob in can of cola or another aluminium box away from the car. 
Regards

Have the dealers managed to get to the bottom of this Battery issue or Toyota UK have any answers?
