Question about 1985 Toyota Cressida
Cressida 1985 5meu auto. all electrics are working but starter motor wont engage and engine wont turn over.sometimes it will start but you might have to wait anything from three minutes to three weeks. the cable from starter to battery is a bit loose could this be all of the problem? I have listened to the power coming through the switches on the firewall and it sometimes makes an electrical noise so it must be getting through this far I guess
Hi, I believe the answer is YES! I have an 1985 Cressida wagon. I bought is used and frankly, did not ev en know it HAD an alarm until it went off a month later. But my engine doesnt engage intermittently. It makes NO sounds, not even a click or anything. I found out this happens regularly and the alarm is usually to blame, as if triggered, it disengages the engine. if you hear noise of any kind, have this checked.
I did find it I jump it , it works great! ...however, i can tell when I lock the door, subtle differences in the feel of the key turning that has been 100% indicator of the alarm disengaging the battery. When I get in, sure enough, the car will not turn over.
Someone told me to just take one of the battery terminals off and put back on and the engine will re-engage. Hah! sure. like I know how to do that.
I bought a portable battery charger 19.95 and self jump it. It works every time,. I am not sure why, but it does.
I am now trying to locate a wiring and maintenance manual so I can just have the Alarm removed. The battery is 1000% great.
Just my opinions.
