I would try a new starter first. take it off and go to your local automotive part store and have them determine wether it is bad or not. if thats not the problem then it could possibly be the alternator, my best friend had a dodge dakota that did the same thing you are describing and came to find out the person he had just bought the truck off of put a new alternator on the truck but it was the wrong amp alternator for that truck. he got the right one and truck is just fine now. make sure you check the power and ground connections on your battery before you do any of this stuff, sometimes the connections can be loose. good luck

Car keeps dying


Try replacing your battery as it sounds like your battery is not holding charge. When you get a boost from other car your using the other cars power to start yours. It only takes a little power to light dash lights etc but takes a LOT of power to start motor.

Battery might have died cause the altinator is not charging 14+V Please charge the battery, donot boost the dead battery. After charging the battery check the altinator output.

the park ave wiring is really easy to screw up when you install an after market radio,
i would have the radio taken out and disconnected and then see if the car goes forwards
also check all of your fuses in the 2 fuse boxes under the hood and the one under the dash and see if he blew any when installing the radio

It might be the starter, if it gets too much use the armature might be too weak and need extra Amps to get it to work right.

Lady with a 1999 4Runner cannot start car after...


Recharge the battery. Or buy a new one. But make sure you have a fully charged battery.What happened was that the battery drained because it probably needs replacement. When the battery drained too low. The ECU deprogramed itself. When installing a new or fully charged battery. Start the car. You may have to remove the negative cable a few times then restart it for the CPU to go into the default settings.
