    4" lift aftermarket wheels, and tires
    Got a 2020 Tacoma TRD 4x4 Offroad 3.5 ltr
    Need some quick advice,
    Battery died due to lack of driving. only 2k miles, my baby and want to keep the miles down
    I know need to drive it more...
    So I have re-charged battery multiple times, and the battery is still dead, so it was time to put in a new battery.
    So now that I have got the new battery, I put it in and tried to re-connect the cables, and the negative cable installed fine, but when I tried to put back on the Red Positive cable, the Alarm comes on and won't go off.
    Tried hitting the panic button on remote, but no luck
    Need suggestions
    this truck has the push button start with and remote door locks
    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Welcome. Don't know about your alarm issue. If oem alarm, see manual or your dealer if truck is still under warranty. If aftermarket, look at it’s manual or contact the manufacturer. Maybe pull the alarm fuse.

    Welcome to TW! You're going to love your Taco!

    I am also unsure about how to deal with the alarm issue, but I think that Chuy gave some solid advice above. As for the battery issue, I would recommend a battery maintainer. Here is a good one from NOCO that you could look into buying. It maintains your battery's charge by trickle charging it. I use one on my motorcycle.
