WARNING to Celica owners
If you have put valve covers on you celica please double check its distance to the battery.

I got into my car this afternoon and went to leave for lunch and the car COMPLETELY died. The valve cover had sliced through the battery wire! None the less it was towed and now I have no car cry frown angry

Also if you have a strut bar, check that as well. If the bar is to close and you hit a bump it could connect with the battery and cause you to blow a fuse.

Just make sure that the battery is tied down nice and tight so that it can't move... you'll be fine wave

Guess your battery wasn't secured properly.
