    I went out to try and start my truck today and it turned over once the clicked like a low battery. Put on the charger and it will not turn over. had on 2 amp all day and still not.

    Put the starter on "Jump" (high amps) and it still won't

    One thing odd, when i turn on the dome or radio or anything, it flashes on off constant.

    Thoughts?

    The flashing...hmm, maybe your battery cables could have gotten loose?

    Thats what i thought, but usually the engine wont even crank at all when its an aftermarket alarm.

    I pulled the cables and cleaned (no corosion at all). I have no aftermarket electical gear at all.

    It's so wierd this flashing. Even the dome...like it's intentional. It is consant, not intermittant or anything.

    If you can, try swapping in a new battery and see if that fixes it.

    iirc flashing interior lights mean engine is toast.

    I would have the dealer come get it, since charging/ jumping battery is not working. Odd that the dome light is flashing......

    +1, You should be covered under the Toyota Care and Road side Assistance. Why F with it when you can have the dealer figure it out.
