1998 Camry, turn ignition to On kills electical system

My Camry has starter problems and won't crank over. I've replaced battery and starter and it still won't crank but causes intermitten electrical system to go dead.

Ignition postion setting and results
* Lock, Car lights and alarm system work fine
* ACC, Car radio works fine
* On, this position seems to kill my cars electrical system

To get the electrical system back online I adjust the negative battery cable. If I repeat the steps above the results are the same.

I checked the battery cables and they are secured on battery post.

Any ideas?

This is a Direct Fault Caused by the Alarm System Starter Kill. Do you have an Alarm Override Switch???? You may need the Dealership to Reset the Alarm if not.

1994 Camry won't start, other times starts right off, battery or starter problem


I'd really need to know if it cranks OK. If it cranks but won't fire, I'd suspect the EFI main relay of sticking. Take that out and tap it, then replace.

If it won't crank, and then does, I think the main contacts at the bottom of the starter solenoid are worn out. Intermittent operation is typical of that.

My 2008 silverado won't start battery is charged


No, it isn't an ignition issue.

Check power to the starter motor solenoid.
If this is getting power when cranking, then the issue is with the starter motor solenoid or starter motor. Replace.

2001 jaguar s-type won't crank battery new and charged. Turn the ignition car won't make a sound


many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

My 96 jeep Laredo will not turn over. I've checked


sorry turns over means ZERO
the crank shaft can spin or not
the starter can in fact spin and crankshaft not.
and some think turns over means, engine runs. now that fact makes turns over, a dead statement.

the word is cranks over, the engine cranks over robustlyl
and then the engine runs.
then runs for more that 3 seconds, and the ASD relay holds. (step by step his works like this ,93 to now)

wont crank ? (clear statement in fact)
cranks ok, (crank shaft spins fast) can be seen and heard.
runs for 3 seconds? and stalls (ASD relay drop out) can be seen.
runs for 5min and stalls. (complex)
runs for hours and stalls. (even more complex)
all are key facts to the solution.

tell more..... tell all it does good bad or ugly
for better suggestions!

CHANGED THE BATT. NOW THE CAR WON'T TURN OVER ALL OTHER ELECT. WORKING. YES IT DOES HAVE ALRAM WITH ENG. KILL. WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW.


1995, with a engine kill, if its aftermarket just remove it, It had nothing to do with you changing battery, It was failing to begin with.If there is a shop that can do this to restore the function of the alarm this will succeed. and restore back to its function, Being a 1995 if there is a distributor coil they'll have to tap the positive part of the coil, This turns the ignition on ,put the key in the ignition with it in the run position they'll have to crank it, with the wheel block and someone in the vehicle just in case and for safety, if it takes off. Now if it doesnt crank then it has the starter kill they'll have to over ride it using the starter solenoid. In other words they have to over ride the whole alarm system, once the car runs it will accept it.

Battery cables off the starter ,starter relay and ignition switch. these are the remaining items in the starting system for no crank and no start.
Get Shop manual and do the appropriate testing for each.

2002 Tahoe engine will not start


Electrical problems are difficult to diagnose in person without testing ...however, it seems that you may be loosing the body ground, causing power loss to the clock and likely the computer as well. As the starter is able to turn the engine, likely there is no problem with engine grounding. While cranking, the accessory side of the ignition switch should remain "hot" otherwise you would loose the clock every time you started it up. If it's not a ground problem, I'd look at the ignition switch itself to make sure it's not dropping power to ignition system while starter is engaged. on some vehicles this can also happen at the starter relay if an ignition bypass is used to provide hotter starting spark.

My 98 golf won t start intermittently. I replaced


If you run a push button directly from the battery to the solenoid, the engine will crank when you push the button.

If the no start condition is because of the solenoid, this will not fix the issue.

If the no start condition is related to circuitry of the ignition system and/or fuel system, this may fix the issue, but may not, as well.
