Is it just my 12v battery or is it more?

Asked by Jul 17, 2017 at 07:18 PM about the 2007 Toyota Prius Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car's clock has been resetting, my window
button half of the time works, and my radio station
settings keep getting wiped. After research it all
pointed to my 12v battery, so I ordered a new one
and went to pick it up. They tested my old battery
and it came back as good. I didn't not get the new
battery. A few weeks ago the red triangle popped
up on my dash and on the screen showed a car
with an exclamation inside of it, but now it is gone.
My car was also dead about a month ago and I had
to jump it. I don't want to get stranded, but also
dont have the money for it to be more.

How old is your battery? They last 4-6 years on avg. If you had to jump your car, it definitely was on a low charge. Have someone else test it, they can put a load on it to test the strength of it.
