I have to replace the Battery on my 2006 GS300.

What issues am I likely to encounter or should I look out for with the electronics of the car when I disonnect the Battery.

Any advice??

the only things that would need to be reset could be :-

1 touch up & down

radio stations

clock

just basic stuff like that

so dont be too concerned

If you have another 12V source (such as a jump start Battery pack or jump leads with a second car to provide 12V) then just connect these leads to the cables or clamps before lifting them off the old Battery. This will keep a 12V supply to the car so that no settings will be lost.

if you follow herbs advice dont forget when you have removed both cables

the red cable will still be live so dont let it come in contact with the body

when ive done this i've put a thick glove over the red cable as a precaution

so it can't short out

Thanks guys.

I have a jumpstart pack and the neighbour has a spare Battery - so sorted.

I will of course heed your advice and BE CAREFUL 🤓
