where do I charge a UK 2020 RAV4 hybrid, the battery is flat
How do I recharge flat batteries on UK RAV4 the batteries are under the floor.
The batteries which run the Ni-Cad hybrid engine are under the floor. There is a plug in under the bonnet where you can connect a charger. But there is a battery under the floor of the boot which starts the engine like a normal car (petrol or diesel) The problem is it doesn't mention this in the car handbook. With the Covid 19 Lockdown and not using the car much, the lead acid battery had run down too much, to safely recharge, so the RAC changed this battery free under the Toyota 5 years warranty.. Hope this helps others with the same problem. Jim
The Ni-Cad batteries which run the hybrid part of the engine are under the floor. Under the bonnet there is a plug in point to connect a charger or spare fully charged battery. However, like a normal car, the Toyota RAV4 4 has a lead acid battery under the boot floor. However with the Covid 19 virus, the car has hardly moved so RAC said not reliable to recharge old battery, so replaced it with sa new one, under Toyota's 5 years warranty. Hope this is of help to others in a similar situation.
