#2120 of 3858 Re: 98 Corolla fried positive battery wires [accord6mt]
Oct 17, 2005 (9:21 am)
I faced the same situation with my 1995 corolla with 110K miles on it. The wires from battery to starter motor are fried and I am not able to get a cheap replacement.
I called Toyota and they quoted over $1000. Pep Boys quoted about $700.
I cant find a cheaper solution but am still trying to contact junk yards if they have those wires. Will let you knoe if I get more info. Also, if anyone else knows about a better way, please let us know.

Thanks for the information. I haven't started looking into the problem - but will try out your advice.

Hi this post is for owners of 2003 - 2005 Corollas. I have a 2004 Corolla and want to replace my Goodyear Integrity tires. I have close to 72,000 kms on them and they are going bald on the edges. What tires do you recommend I get? I want a good long lasting all-season tires. Some suggested Michelin Harmony's or Goodyear Assurance. I need feedback from you on how good or bad your tires are. Thank you!

I love my new Michelin Hydroedges! Quiet, smooth, great traction.

Thanks. Ive actually been having a problem with my Goodyear tires as well. Perhaps I should make that change as well.

Put Michelin X radials from Sams on my 2003 Corolla LE and like them very much.

My problem maybe similar to others,but please bear with me.
I was driving home yesterday,almost home,went around the corner and my car just died.Pulled off to the side of the road to try and restart the engine,no luck.So I popped the hood and my son checked to see is anything had come off or was loose,no luck.
So he called a tow truck and we had it towed home.
So I have read here that it could possibly be the alternator or a fuse,how do we go about checking if the alternator is the problem?Or what else should be checked?

How old is the car and how many miles are on it? It could be the timing belt (depending on the age of the vehicle). If the belt snapped, it's a safety feature. The car will shut down to prevent damage to the motor. Good luck.

I have heard good things about Longo Toyota. New cars today don't use
Freon for A/C systems. Just curious, what was the name of the dealership
that treated you badly?
I suggest you call the Toyota customer relations office in Torrance and
explain your experience. They may call the dealer to reprimand them.
By the way, I've read that 06 Corollas have an annoying feature, when you
put the car in reverse, the car beeps. Do you find this annoying?
Good luck and enjoy your new car.
