About Alternator Relays
The Toyota alternator relay is a small electrical relay switch unit.
It is usually located inside the engine compartment, bolted to the body near to the alternator.
The Toyota alternator relay controls the flow of electrical current between the alternator, battery and the starter motor. It also prevents any current returning to the alternator.
Problems associated with a faulty relay can be, low battery power, trouble starting the engine and low electrical power to lighting and accessories. An audible repetitive clicking sound can indicate a malfunctioning relay. Replacing this part with a Toyota alternator relay will ensure a compatible fit with the make and model of your vehicle.
- Although Toyota started making its first cars in 1937, these were specifically produced to contribute to Japan's war effort. It wasn't until 1947 that they started producing cars for civilians.
- The first car company to produce over 10 million cars in a single year (which they did in 2013), Toyota also boasts the record-breaking sales of one Corolla sold every 37 seconds (every 27 seconds in 2013). That made the Corolla the best selling car of all time!
- They might be one of the biggest and well-known brand names in the world, but Toyota is still very much a family business. Every CEO so far has been a descendant of the original founder.
- World-famous magazine the MIT Technology Review repeatedly includes Toyota in its list of the world's 50 smartest companies.
- The Toyota company got its start making automated looms in 1033. Founder Sakichi Toyoda even invented the automated loom and then sold them off to try and get into the car industry. There is still an arm of Toyota that is still in the textile industry!
