Fluid Film would have spared you using those jams and jellies,I replaced the battery in the 2011 Sienna today. My wife had to get a jump start from a friend at the lake/beach with the kids last night. Today it started and ran fine. Removing the old battery, I suspect the problem was the negative terminal contact was sulphated and couldn't deliver the amps to start. It wouldn't even click. I kept the old battery and took along an older one for a core. The old van battery had been installed in April 2015, so I wanted to replace it anyway for peace of mind. I bought the highest level Interstate battery i could get for the van, for $150. It has 750cca instead of the 650cca of the old one.
I got it home and cleaned up the terminals with a wire brush battery post cleaner. I even cleaned the terminal bolt threads and coated with antiseize. I removed the battery tray and saw a couple of ground points there, so removed and cleaned them and coated with antiseize before putting the tray and battery back in. Once the battery was bolted down and terminals were connected, I coated the terminals with petroleum jelly to keep them clean. Started it up, it ran for 3 seconds and died. Computer said not to turn power off, it was loading. Okay, weird but must be a new car thing. Restarted it when that was done and it started and ran as normal. It should now be reliable again. I wrote down the battery replacement in the van's log book (original/previous owner started it, so I'm continuing it so this vehicle has a history). We got the van with 85,000 miles on it and it now has 130,000 miles and we've taken it to 5 states.
Was that a spray anti-seize you used? I have heard of spray type anti-seize but never used it. I don't remember even seeing it on the shelves.
