SOURCE: My 1994 Camry cranks but wont fully start

As you are finding out ....this is how you kill a car. You need fuel, spark, compression, and air to run an engine. Look for spark and fuel items to be working. A computer controls much of the spark part. They canbe sensitve electrically. If you are cranking ..starter sounds ok. Alt. will act up after you get started. concentrate on spark and spark control. Fuel and fuel control. This is what you need to start.

SOURCE: How do I change the starter in a 2000 Toyota Camry LE

i'm sure it's not the starter itself that is the problem, have the stater's solenoid might be stucked. It's quite a lot of work removing the starter but you can do it if you are willing enough to learn. You just need the right idea and tools to do it. Hope this will help save you bucks!

SOURCE: My 1996 model Toyota Landcruiser is giving me starting problem

Your diesel land cruiser has a separate glow plug for each cylinder. Their function is to pre heat a swirl chamber prior to injecting fuel into the cylinder. Since you have no spark on a diesel, your combustion comes from superheated fuel and high compression...for you vehicle I believe the compression ratio is 21.6:1 as compared to 8.0:1 for a gasoline model. If you are not getting combustion readily, then either the glow plugs are not getting the fuel preheated properly before starting, or your compression is low. I would tend to believe it is a glow plug issue since they only stay on for a second. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Sounds like a bad battery. If the battery is OK than lock and unlock your Toyota with your fob. If it is still dead than take the better terminal cables off and touch the negative and positive cables together while both are disconnected and away from battery terminals. Should reset your anti theft system. Connect the cables back and try to start. again. If no crank likely bad battery. If battery is OK but no crank then it is the starter.

1996 toyota corolla, battery & alternator

If the battery has been overcharged then the cells will be damaged . Have a load test done on the battery to confirm failure and if so then get a new battery.. have the alternator checked at the same time because there is a possibility that the regulator in the alternator has been also damaged allowing over charging of the battery. By having incorrectly connected the jumper leads then you may have also damaged the cpu unit of the engine management box. Best have an autro electrician look at it .

It sounds like your starter solenoid is going bad. You can take the starter off and take it to Autozone and have it tested. But it may test ok, because the problem is intermittent. I would still suggest replacing it. 99 times out of 100 it is the starter solenoid that causes this problem.

If there is an intermittent problem with starting, I always check the battery connections for cleanliness and wire brush after removing the connections. This is a very common problem on cars of your age., and doesn't take much money to perform.

If the battery, starter, and alternator are functioning correctly, this could very well be the problem.

Otherwise, many places like Walmart or auto parts stores will test and diagnose the starting/charging problem for free or for a nominal fee using a diagnostic machine, which can be effective both in cost and technically in determining the problem.

Good luck on this repair.

Avalon won't start, fast clicking noises

Sounds like a dead battery issue. If someone can jump start you with battery cables connect red to red post on battery and black to your car frame or other ground. If the car starts easily it indicates a discharged battery. Then you need to determine why the battery is discharged. If you can drive to a local autoparts store they can use a machine to do a battery and charging system diagnosis at the curbside. Autozone, Advance, or Oreilly all do this. If the battery is the original from the car when purchased it is probably time to replace it. If its a new one (2 years or less) the culprit may be the alternator. The clicking noise is a dead give away that its a battery or alternator issue. The clicking by the way is the starter trying to engage and turn motor over to crank it. Its not getting enough power to turn the engine over (a tough task) and is clicking.

We changed the starter and the alternator and now their no power to the car....


Check the battery terminals/cables for security first.
If ok, then check any fuselinks inline, on the + cable (red).

If ok, then check MAIN FUSE in the engine fuse box - replace of blown.

If these are all good.....then, re-check the earth connections on the starter & alternator, including any other components/cables you may have disturbed when changing those items.

Have the battery tested 1st, if that is ok then the problem is the starter solenoid contacts are burnt and causing a intermittent loss of connection which causes a no crank.
