I have a Toyota Avensis 2005 2.2 d4d
Over the last couple of years I have had an issue with the car battery being flat, so far we have had 4 different batteries (The first three were the wrong size for the car) put on the car and yesterday went to start the car and again, dead battery and car wouldn't start.
When I try to start the car, it turns over followed by a series of clicking noises. The battery is flat, as the dashboard lights come on and then go off as soon as I try to start the car.
We have had the alternator, starter motor and wiring checked and the garage can find no faults.
However, I did notice that these last few days, the car has been "sluggish" to start and would take about 3-4 seconds to actually start.
Anyone have any idea's why this would keep happening?
