Question about 1995 Toyota Camry
My old battery was hooked up with the cables reversed, causing a big spark..I had to replace the 100 amp fuse & put in a new battery...The car wants to turn over, but it just won't, even jumpstarting it doesn't work..What could be the problem??...Alternator??? Or something more serious ???
Lets start with ;; the car wants to turn over;?i dont know what you mean ,is the starter motor turning ?is the engine turning/.lets rule out a couple of things 1 the alternator might be faulty as you say why did you need jump cables in the first place.lets start after the big spark;if ign was switched on at the time of the spark then anything is possible;i would say start looking in and around the battery for burnt or broken wires then move down to wards the starter also feel all plastic wires for signs of overheating replace if necessery.At the starter motor you should have three wires one earth this is black or has no covering the second wire is red with a plastic covering the third is the wire coming from your ign switch check all three wires for burning if you cant find the fault by now then you will have to get it tested by an autoelectrical garage hope this helps you.adrian
