Why do I have difficulty starting the engine on my 2015 RAV4

Asked by Oct 14, 2018 at 01:54 PM about the 2015 Toyota RAV4 LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Why do I have difficulty starting the engine on
my 2015 RAV4?   This is the first pushbutton  
ignition I’ve ever had, but at least once or
twice a week the car will not crank. At first I
thought it was me either taking my foot off
the break too early or releasing the engine
start button too soon, but that is not the
case. I’ve had the battery, starter, and the
alternator tested and all is well with those.  I
bought the car used a year ago, but it had
and does receive regular maintenance.  Also,
it has less than 75,000 miles on it. Any ideas?

Its a 2015...probably has the factory battery in it from 2015. Replace it. Idc what test said it was "good". They only last 3 years. The colder it gets outside the lower the cranking amps will be. All dying batteries usually test good when u pull up to a shop because you were driving there (charging it) Overnight they lose charge and you don't have enough amps to start up. Auto zone has a Toyota RAV4 battery for $130 dollars. Free install.
