Engine startup for Toyota Premio

For some reason, when I start the car the engine does not start. I remember someone saying something about a perticular procedure (for example first I have to press break and then it the engine starts to work). I tried this but I am not able to start the engine (The sound system and the lights inside the cars works and the outside does not). It would really help if someone knows the procedure to start the car. Thanks

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

SOURCE: Engine don't start and have a clicking sound

you should check and see the batttery smart visor indicator (if applicable - see owners manual)
this may be that the battery has been drained and does not have enough power to rotate the starter. lights, dashboard, instruments light up ok as the voltage is there but the power (amperage) is low. please refer to owners manual on how to recharge your battery. bare in mind that removing the baterry from the care will reset systems (audio, alarm) and you wil need to recode them by using the codes provided with the car.

you may have to disconnect the battery for a minute or so ,this will reset the alarm. check your remote it does have a battery in it. otherwise you have to look for a fuse somewhere under the dash close to the fuse box.each one is diff. depending if it original toyota or aftermarket alarm.

I have a toyota premio with a d4 engine when you start the engine it shows the check engine warning light and then it goes off.

Good Day qits81, if your vehicle does not do anything funny while running it is nothing to worry about. Under normal operating conditions the engine control unit runs an automatic system diagnosis program to ensure that the engine runs at an optimum. As soon as the engine control unit received "feedback" from the sensors and all is o.k the light switches off. If there is a problem with one or more of the systems the check engine light will stay on to warn the operator that they need to have it checked out.

I am having a Toyata Premio F 2007 and Fuel consumption is about 6Km per litre . How can I reduce the fuel consumption rate.

only use the first third of the gas peddle
use premium grade fuel(computer controlled engine will adjust for better fuel quality)
TURN OFF THE A/C uses about 25% of your fuel.
sorry to say this, but next time buy a smaller engine/body car (in england, if it dont do more than 45 mpg,as an average,the residual value is pants...)
