How to Replace Your 2016 Toyota Tacoma Battery

Replacing the battery in your Tacoma is straightforward if you follow these steps carefully:

  1. Location: Find the battery on the right side of the engine compartment.

  2. Disconnect the Negative Terminal: Always start with the negative (black) terminal. Use your 10mm socket and drive ratchet to loosen and disconnect it.

  3. Disconnect the Positive Terminal: Next, move to the positive (red) terminal, using the same 10mm socket.

  4. Remove the Hold-Down Bracket: There's a bracket holding your battery in place, also requiring the 10mm socket to remove.

  5. Clean Your Battery Terminals: Before putting in the new battery, give the terminals a quick clean to ensure a good connection.

  6. Replace the Old Battery: Carefully lift out the old battery and replace it with the new one, ensuring it sits snugly in the battery tray.

  7. Reverse Order: Reattach the hold-down bracket, connect the positive terminal, and finally, the negative terminal.

  8. First Start: Your Tacoma may die on the first start; this is normal. Just give it another go, and you should be all set.

  9. Test Your Alternator: With the new battery installed, it's a good idea to check your alternator's output. It should be between 13.5-14.5 volts.
