Question about 2001 Toyota Camry
I recently had a professional locksmith change my ignition in my 2001 Toyota Camry and now the engine will not turn over. Ive checked the battery which is fine. I thought the problem was with the starter but i just got done replacing that too. So basically they starter gets the power at first but then it cuts out before the engine has time to crank over. My question is there sum kind of sensor in the ignition that might of gotten disconnected that cuts power to my starter?
The locksmith may not have tightened the "electrical" part onto the new ignition lock. The electrical part (the ignition "switch", if you will, is actually the thing that sends power to the starter, via the action of the key. If it is loose, you will get the exact problem that you are describing. Drop the lower dash panel on the driver side and examine it (the round white thing with several wires coming from it), hooked to the BACK of the ignition cylinder. Check it out & get back to me.
