Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla 160i
Good Day - I have a Toyota Corolla GSX 2005. My key is old and taped together but has been working ok so far. Today, after returing from a 55km trip, I stopped the car at the bank atm to draw money. When I got back in to start it up, the engine would not turn but the all the dashboard lights and backlights started flashing rapidly and there was a similar buzzing (ticking) noise coming somewhere from the lefthand side of the dashboard - possibly the engine compartment. We then push-started the car. On the first attempt the engine took, but refused to build revs when the accelerator was pressed. On the second attempt, it did start and we managed to get the vehicle home. I let it idle a while before switching it off and when the cooling fan kicked in, the ABS light lit momentarily. I read somewhere in the motoring forums that faulty ignition keys can cause some or similar problems. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
This sounds to me like your corolla,s battery might need to be tested . i would recomend taking the car to a battery centre for a good inspection

sounds like you are on the right track, the battery you have in it has done well to last that long but it sounds like a fell cells have decided to call it quits

Bypass the fuse? Bypassing a fuse is a fire hazard in the first place. When they worked on that everything should work normally plus the added feature. Not compromising anything. Take it back there and have it done properly or put it back the way it was, and have it done somewhere else. You work hard for your money so you deserve a good job on your car.

That is to show that the alarm system immobilisor is on. Shut everything off, close all the doors,windows etc. Lock the car. Then open the car using the remote handset or key and try to start the engine, if it still does not start , then you may have to take it to the dealer to check and reprogramme the system. BTW, did you disconnect the battery prior to this fault ? this would explain why the system is immobilised. Hope that helps
