Question about 2003 Toyota Camry
2003 Camry, 90,000 miles, daughter's car. The starter was sluggish but would start. The horn would honk erratically on it's own. The alarm LED (left of steering whell below instrument panel) stays on all the time. The car will die at idle in gear but runs if in neutral and gassed a little. She had a new battery installed yesterday but the problem continues, except for the horn situation. Check engine light functions normally (comes on at start then goes off). She's 500 miles away from me!
Any help appreciated.
Two things that I would look at:
1.) The spark plugs should be changed at this mileage
2.) She may be having the beginnings of an Idle Control Valve ("IAC") failure.
The security LED blinking is normal
The horn issue may be a weak battery on the keyless entry remote transmitter
