    Battery health can be checked with the scan tool which supports Toyota.

    Its like you can drive the vehicle without pouring the fuel in it. Without scan equipment you are completely blind.

    That is not what I meant. We normally buy used cars by physical examination and one short test drive and that's about. How do you check the health of battery in such short inspection other than the odometer reading, which might be tampered who knows?

    There are a few simple tests that can give you an idea of its condition.
    1) While in park, after the engine warms up, rev it, if while turning on or turning off, there is significant vibration, batteries are weak.
    2) keep the brake pressed, and keep switching gears on the gear lever for about 30 seconds, if the vehicle gives an error, batteries are weak.
    There were also a few other things but i don't remember them now
