Question about 1993 Toyota Previa
I have a 1993 Toyota Estima Lucida. Some days it starts first time, other days 20 minutes later it kicks over. When it doesn't start I have nothing. I hear the click as the valves/plugs heat up, but turn the key and dead. I leave the key in and on for a couple of minutes, sometimes it works other times it doesn't. I can drive 100 miles, stop and will start immediately, sometimes it doesn't. It is a bit erratic, but when the car does start no problems.
Any ideas please:
There are various things this could be ie inhibitor switch on auto box relays wiring fault or ignition barrel problems try putting the starting the car in N instead of P and wiggle gear lever about other option bypass everything and connect a live feed straight to starter motor cranking wire which is located on the starter motor, if car still wont turn over tap starter motor with a hammer, if hammer trick works then you need a new starter
