Are you sure it's your battery? 3-4 years is the average age when
batteries konk out for good, but you'd better check your charging
system because a bad one can ruin a new battery in a few weeks.

Interstate is made by Johnson Controls, which also produces Sears
Diehard (most but not the Platinums -- Deka/East Penn makes those),
Motorcraft, Costco Kirkland, Walmart Everstart/Maxx, AutoZone
Duralast, Eveready, Advance Auto, and I think Bosch. I don't think
Consumer Reports has found any of these JC brands to be better than
others, and each year they test batteries, they get different
results. I believe all of these are low maintenance, not maintenance-
free, except for Eveready. Low maintenance can be better if you
forget to turn off the lights overnight because maintenance-free can
be ruined for good if you do that just 1-2 times.

Thanks, I will look into the batteries mentioned.
It's time to replace the battery anyways. So, will try that first.
Will look further if that doesn't make things better.

I go with Exide, aince they make Toyota's OEM batteries, and I have gotten
over 7 years out of three Toyota batteries.
