  1. Thanks Conrod I'll bear that in mind, I'm taking RAV to my local mechanic and let him check it over, thanks again. He knows RAV very well because I always take it to him for MOT and he is good with tyres mine kept going down more than usual and he managed to fix them for me..
  2. Thanks for that Mike, I haven't got the Halfords discount card but I'll look on the internet for a bargain.
  3. Thanks Conrod that looks just the job, I'll have to get saving. Thanks for the information.
  4. Thanks again Michael, it's nice to know your interested to know how I get on.
  5. Thanks Michael will have to buy a bigger battery, there's room for one.
  6. Thanks for the advice Phil I'll try that. The mind boggles, it could be a dodgy battery because I used a mains charger to charge the battery and it was ok for a week but now it's let me down again by going flat.
  7. Hello Phil, yes all the doors are closed when I lock it and there's no lights on. Also the radio is turned off. I found an article online about parasitic battery drain which my son checked for with his multimeter. As amateurs we don't think it's that. We've had a go a using the multimeter on the alternator which showed that it wasn't fluctuating. Might have to let a 'proper' mechanic have a look at it, thanks.
  8. Thanks for reply Paul. It's a petrol RAV4 2.0 engine. My son has tested battery with a multimeter and says it's ok so it's more than likely an alternator problem. It started with a battery jumper that I keep in back of car for emergencies.
  9. It is a fairly new battery that keeps going flat. Do you know how to test if it's the alternator or if I need a new battery please?
  10. Yes he did test for power at the connector and it was 12 V, thanks.
  11. Thanks for your helpful reply. My son has taken the socket out and has ordered another from ebay so I hope this works.
  12. re TOYOTA RAV4 March to August 1999 three door. Hello I was using an air compressor plugged into the cigarette lighter socket when it stopped working. I tried my son's compressor and that didn't work either, it had just been working on his car. I think I found the fuse for it under the heading CIG in the fuse box located under the steering wheel. II's a 15 volt one. It looks ok. In the manual it shows a third fuse box, I don't know if this is the one I need, but I can't find it. Can you help me with this please?
  13. Hello, it is a 3 door older model T reg.
  14. The water sprayer doesn't hit the window, it just spurts straight up. I've tried to use a needle to move the nozzle but it doesn't work. Can you help me with this please?
