    I used to put my pickup truck before purchasing the CT on a Battery Tender when I left for international business trip all the time. The trip ranges from 2 weeks to 1 month. Wondering if I can still used the Battery Tender on a CT as I feel like I don't want to put some external charger on it...

    I'm not sure why but my 2012 CT had been chewing through key FOB batteries like crazy. I am having to replace them every 3-4 months. Anyone else have this issue or know what might cause the battery to drain so rapidly.

    Hello guys, I would like to know if the problem I got is normal, or not. I left the car in a garage unattended for 2 weeks without moving it and when I got back to use it, the battery was dead! So I had to call the assistance (fortunately the ADAC in Germany does this service for free) to turn...

    My 12V battery is getting weak. Two times in the last few months it has discharged itself down to the point where the car won't start properly. This generally happens on a weekend when I park the car on Friday and then try and start it on Monday. When this happens the dash lights flash...

    I'm getting really annoyed with the battery smell. Is anyone else getting this? Best I can describe the smell is that it smells like a combination of vinegar and stinky feet. Happens once ever other week. In order to get rid of it quicker, I have to shut the AC system off and roll down all the...

    I purchased a used CT in November. Sine then outside tempertures have not been very warm here. I've noticed that cooling fan runs almost all the time during city driving, even when it's near freezing outside. This makes me very nervous about whats going to happen this summer when temps are in...

    Has anyone else seen this? My Hybrid Battery Fan comes on every other week. Sometimes once every week. I am wondering if there is a defect with the battery cooling system. On my 2004 Prius, the fan would only come on once every 6 months, and that was in PA where summers would get over 100 F. I...

  14. Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    hey guys, I'm having an amp and small sub put into my car this weekend. Would the person use the 12V battery in the truck for the power source? What have people been using for those who have done any audio upgrades? Thanks in advance everyone!

    New CT200h that had a dealer-installed remote start kit installed last week. Today, I could not start the car to drive by just having the key in my possession and the touch lock/unlock doesn't work. I have to start the car by holding the key to the power button so it lights up to allow Power...
  16. Lexus CT200h Engine and Technical Discussion.
    So I've been driving mine for a couple of weeks, but when the wheel/battery/engine graphic is on the display, the battery never seems to charge above 80%. Is that normal? Has anyone ever seen it "fill up" to the top of the graphical "battery terminals"?
  17. Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Hi All, I am interested in purchasing a CT200h in the next month or so. One of the question I have is the generation of the hybrid technology CT200h used? I know that Lexus is a part of the Toyota, but it seems like the Toyota's prius offer more spec info compare to Lexus's CT200h. From...

    My 3 week old CT is showing signs that the fob battery is weakening, as sometimes the car will not detect its presence unless I hold the fob to the Power button. How long do these batteries last? Have others experienced the same occurence, but the battieries were fine and it is just a quirk...

    Hello Everyone, Battery Life/Replacement Cost: Out of curiosity, how long (yrs) does the battery last approximately when purchasing a brand new CT200h? I have been reading reviews about the lifespan on the Toyota Prius; battery life lasting up to 10 years+ and some do not require replacement...
