Probably a bad starter motor.  grab yourself a chilton or haynes book for your vehicle and look up the starter motor, it should list the proper procedures for testing and replacing.  Worst case scenario is a seized engine, but that doesn't seem very likely in this case.  Maybe even a wiring issue?  hope this helps.

2005 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder intermittently won't start


try starting the car and while running disconnect the negative battery cable,if the car still runs turn on the head lights,if the car dies the alternator is weak. I think its weak and can charge the battery as long as the lights are off,but cant keep up when theyare on. so if drive most of the time in the day time you are ok as long as you dont have to start the car too many times. when you drive with the lights on and the engine slows to an idle like when you park the car dies. make sense?

Re: 2005 Kia Rio Wagon. Driving down the highway, car just decided to stop working. Will not start again. Have replaced the starter with a brand new starter still not working. All you can hear is


Well, to begin with, the LAST thing I would replace if a vehicle died going down the highway is the starter. What caused the engine to die? It certainly was not the starter!
If the starter will not crank the engine over, you probably have a dead battery. If your battery went dead while driving the vehicle down the road, you most likely have a bad alternator. However, it is really hard to say without actually being able to see the car.

I have a 98 toyota camry i was driving on the highway and all of a sudden it shut down on me and i got it towed to my house and when i try to start it it makes a clicking noise....what could the problem...


Engine size?see if the cam is turning when you try to crank it, (look down the oil filler cap hole) if its not turning the timing belt is broken. A shop will need to replace it. I recommend the water pump and pullies be replaced, cam and crank seals. If its a 4 cylinder be sure to replace the oil pump seal and gasket.

My 1996 mitsubishi galant may have a bad ground. the battery is constently dead, even with a new battery, if it sits the battery will be dead in 5 hours. i get a jump and it starts right up, but if i fail...


you need to get the charging system and battery tested. Most places charge about $40 for this service. Only takes a few minutes to complete but it will be money well spent. Then you can do the replacement parts yourself if you inclined.
