89 Celica Power Drain

My 89 celica was sitting for about four months and now drains the battery - it runs fine once jumped. I assume I should start with an alternator? Please advise.

My celica has been sitting in the driveway for about 6 months. I connected the battery and had little trouble starting it, but finally got it to start. Then i turned it off and tried to turn it on again...


The battery connections may be dirty. The alternator may not be charging the battery. You had enough battery to start the car and keep it running but because the battery may not have been receiving charge, it lost power the whole time the engine was running. When you turned off the engine, the battery may have been practically dead. So, it wouldn't have any power left when you tried to restart or even turn on.

If you have a battery charger, charge the battery back up. Check the alternator for proper charging output. some auto parts stores will check the alternator output for free.

My 1992 Toyota Celica is always being required to charged every night, Tested alternator and Battery both tested out fine in august when problem first occured, could go serveral days without charging now...


If you have to charge the battery every night, the most likely cause is a drain. Dirty and loose cables may be a possible cause. I would cleand tighten and replace any bad cables. Check all connections alt starter and battery. Question when it does not start does it make any niose? if it makes a single click and you try again and it will eventually catch your starter contacts amy be worn out. If you can check for a drain. Ameter positive cable removed ameter between cable and positive terminal. You should have less than 10 mili volt. Or .010 amps.

1985 celica GT battery and brake lights stay on. don't drive it often and after a few months of inactivity, have to re-charge the battery. The battery is fairly new.


Small drain on battery from radio, clock etc, will draw it down over that much time, so even a small charger, or short drive once in a while, (little more often) will keep it up if all is working on charging system. Check brake fluid level, as well as try pushing emergency brake handle down, to see if maybe that just sticking. be careful not to pull it too far as it may be partially seized from sitting too much. Let me know what you find.

Hello All - I'm hoping someone here can give me a few ideas. My 92 toyota celica st has sit for about 5 days - for the last 3 days the temp outside has been in the single digits. Went to go start today and...


You can try this.
Turn on the key and listen for the fuel pump to prime.
It will sound like a gentle hum. when it stops, turn the key off. wait a few seconds and do it again. Do this three or four times, but don't try to start it. after the third or fourth time you turn it off, try to start it. It may not be priming the fuel injectors fast enough.

2003 toyota celica wont crank after sitting in garage for 4 month


If you have a bad contacts at the battery, solenoid, ground and/or starter .. it could exhibit this kind of activity .. take the battery cables off the battery and clean those contacts till they are shiny, trace the ground wire to the frame/firewall and clean that contact (emery/sandpaper), and trace "hot" wire to solenoid/starter and make sure that they are clean and tight .. another possibility could be the neutral safety switch .. try starting it in neutral

Your diagnosis is correct. The check valve in the fuel pump is letting the gas drain out of the line from the injector rail, and cranking for a long time then starting is indicative of this. Replace the fuel pump.
