1996 toyota camry starts with a jump, replaced alternator still does it


Sounds like you have a bad battery. If it won't take the charge the alternator is giving it, then it won't start. Take it up and have the battery tested to see if it is taking or holding a charge.

You dont need a computer. You need a new Body Control Module. Located under the center console but forward towards the dash. A very common problem with these cars. NOT A USED ONE....A NEW ONE. They are VIN specific.

Car wont start no lights and batterie is dead . jump it and it starts right up


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to make sure the battery is holding a proper charge. Clean the terminals and clean the post. You could have a weak alternator draining your battery. You can test it by starting the car and unplugging the hot side battery terminal once the battery is charged. If it dies instantly, your alternator is bad. You may need a new battery.

The battery is not charging properly, have to jump it and then when you try to restart later, it wont start. I talked to an auto person and was told it was the alternater, not sure what to do and dont have...


If the car runs until you turn it off and won't restart, the alternator is charging and the battery will not hold a charge. If it can't hold a charge, it will not be able to restart the car. If the car runs and then dies, the alternator isn't charging. The alternator may be wearing out and not be able to keep the car running and charge the battery. Chances are based upon your description of your problem (sounds like car runs until you shut it off and won't restart), it's a worn battery. If it's 5 or more years old, you probably need a new one. If you are not sure, test them. I think your battery is finished.

My battery wont hold a charge even when jumped.


The battery may have been bad. They replaced it, and probably neglected to test the alternator. You now need to have both tested.

WONT START


Sounds like your alternator has gone bad.  The alternator is responsible for charging your battery back up for you as you drive.  You can have this tested if you take it off and take it down to your local auto parts store.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my respones and for using FixYa!
