Question about 2000 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

My car wont start

I have a 2000 Camry and my battery is dead because the wires that connect to the top of the alternator keep burning through their casing. I don't know if all the wires are burning or just one. I do smell wire burning inside the car and under the hood. The battery was tested a few months ago and its fine but not sure about the alternator

Alternater wont charge battery and fusable link on starter keeps burning


Bad voltage regulator. Usually built-into alternator.
Start car and unplug battery, if it dies your alternator is dead. Get new alternator. If car keeps running, get a voltmeter and check voltage coming through - should be higher than 12v but less than 18v. Any other number means your voltage regulator is dead, cheaper to get a new alternator.

Radio quit playing now car wont start cannot shift into nutrial


The first thing to check is the battery, if the battery is dead try jump starting it with another car or use another battery, if it then starts you should have the alternator tested, most autoparts stores do this at no charge, it may be that the alternator is not keeping the battery charged.

Car wont start,seems like battery went dead


If the car doesn't start with a jump you might have a bad alternator. The alternator supplies voltage to the car once the engine is running. If the battery is dead, and the alternator isn't putting out sufficient voltage, the engine cannot run. Then again sometimes a car with an extremely dead or internally shorted battery WON'T start with a jump. Replace the battery and try again.

My car keeps dying and won't restart until I charge the battery again. Then, when I drive during the day there are no problems. When I drive at night using the headlights it will die within a short period...


Travis,

Thsi way you will keep paying me $10 everytime your battery goes dead. Please have your car alternator checked and repaired as it is not charging the battery because of which the battery runs low and the cars stops. Gas cars need a battery to run on, unlike diesel ones that need battery only to start. They can also be push started if the battery is dead. petrol card cant run without the battery. So, the answer lies in driving to the electrician and getting the alternator repaired.

Car wont run.


Does it crank well and all that but with no spark or is the battery just dead? If the battery is dead, it either won't charge while alternator is spinning or the alternator doesn't charge well enough to keep the battery charged well. If it jumps and runs indefinitely, battery is done. If it jumps and dies, alternator is done. If battery and alternator are fine, and you have no spark, you may need a new coil, new spark plug wires if they are worn out and too resistant, pick up coil inside of distributor, or you may have some other ignition system issue.

Most times when an alternator fails, it starts charging less and less till the car won't keep running or it won't start the next time. If the alternator hasn't failed, the battery needs replacing. If your battery is 5 or more years old this is a very good possibility. If your alternator failed and you have killed your battery many times before replace them both. Each time you drain a battery to dead you lose about 10% of its current capacity.

If the battery is fine and engine will not turn, starter may need replacing. Hope I helped.

2000 camry will not start


You need the check for power at the solenoid wire (small wire) on the starter while turning the key to start. If there is power during start you have a bad starter. If there is no power at start, try staring it with the shifter in neutral. If there is power then, your neutral safety switch is either bad or needs adjustment.
I'm assuming all your battery connections are tight.
