Toyota: Battery Disconnect

The disconnecting and reconnecting (D&R) a battery is not as simple as it once may have been.

So, what does a repair technician need to know for battery D&R on Toyota vehicles?

The RDN article states, "The common repair step of unplugging the battery can add complexity to what seems like the most basic of work by triggering the need for additional repair procedures." Toyota conveniently provides a detailed section in each body repair manual that address what procedures will need to be performed when the battery is disconnected and what systems will be affected.
