  1. Thank you so much thats all I needed. Mine is 012 I believe but I will compare the measurements in the item description anyway.
  2. Thank you so much oldcodger thats a lot of useful information. So my battery is ore than likely same spec as the one that was new. Great I will look around now for one and replace it myself. I was looking at Bosch with slightly higher specs anyway so I will go for that. Or Varta if I can find one locally but both should be similar anyway coz Bosch batteries are made by Varta? So I can go for a higher CCA as well? One last question will replacing battery cause issues with radio and will I need the code? I read around the internet and apparently I shouldn't need it on 2006 corolla. Also Bomber209 thank you as well for help.
  3. Thank you for all the replies. My current battery 45Ah and 400 CCA HB012 but I was afraid of putting more capacity battery on as I have heard that alternator might struggle keeping it charged and decrease its lifespan. I shall however contact my local Toyota Dealer and ask about replacing the battery as they will know best. Too be honest i thought that my battery was bit small (not physically just capacity) as some website recommended much higher Ah and CCA.
  4. Hi I have toyota corolla 2006 1.6 VVTI. I would like to replace the battery in it because atm the one fitted is very old halfords battery. Specs are 45Ah and 400 CCA HB012. Now I don't know if this is the correct battery for it and I can't find any information about it in the manual I want to make sure that I will buy battery with recommended specs for this vehicle.
  5. I do have a dash cam but it is not connected to the battery it's just using the cigarette lighter port. It does have parrot installed (it was already there when I bought it). Don't know if this matter at all but thought I'd mention it. All I know is that the noise is coming from the radio area even when it's off.
  6. So I have noticed that while driving and went over little hole in the road surface this beeping came on again. Radio was off but it beeped anyway and it makes me thing wether its something to do with some electric connection in the car? Maybe its coming loose causing the warning sound. But it happens during ignition too though. Also may I add that there is no light accompanying the sound on the dashboard at least nothing that I have noticed. When it happens is inconsistent sometimes on a roundabout sometimes after driving through rough road patch and most often when i start my engine.
  7. Yes it does but it also very rarely happens while I'm driving too when the radio is already on. I don't know wether it's a fault or some soft of warning sound ....
  8. Hi Something odd started happening lately when there is a beeping noise coming from a radio (which stops music and when its done beeping it resumes the music automatically). Its doing it on ignition and sometimes during driving most of the time when I was at a roundabout but maybe its just coincidence. Its not happening every time i start the engine. Any idea why it might be happening? Messenger (1).mp4
  9. Thank you so much this helped I tried twisting the knob .... thought it was electrical problem. I only had my corolla 2 days still learning. Anyway case is closed thanks again!!!
  10. Hi I have a problem with toyota corolla 2006 1.6 56 reg. When I switch the engine on dash lights are on like normal. But when I switch parking lights or headlights on its goes off cant even see the odometer. The MPG values seem to jump radically up and down too (not like they do usually just big ammounts at the time which seems odd). Anyone now why is this happening?
