2003 Toyota Avalon xls model all lights and dials on instrument panel go off and engine stops when I go over bumps. I wait 2 minutes and car starts up again and runs fine until I go over bumps again.


The very first thing I would check would be if the battery cables are clean and tight. After that I'd lean towards a bad ignition switch. Do you have a ton of keys on your keyring? wiggle your key while its on to see if you can recreate the problem.

Ok 03 Yukon, at first not running but after being towed home it hit a bump and all the lights came on. Took it off the wrecker it started right up, but nothing electrical in cab works, and now it won'


It might possibly be the ignition switch, or the linkage to it.

They reason I suspect this is your statement, "I bumped the key forward and it will engage the starter but still wont shut off"

The part where you insert the key is really a "cylinder lock", that then transfers the turning motion to the actual "ignition switch"

My wife had a Pontiac (also a GM product) that the cylinder lock had a linkage that went to the ignition switch (similar to a sliding electric switch, with the 4 positions, ACC, OFF, RUN, START), which was bolted on further down the steering column, underneath the plastic covering on the column.

Another person here had a similar problem, and after suggesting this, he wrote back that he removed his steering column cover and found a screw opposite the cylinder lock that had loosened and fallen out.

So you could try removing the steering column cover and see if all is ok.

Also, when you have it opened up, observe the action as you turn the key, as the problem could be the cylinder lock itself.

Many times the dealer gives you a valet key made to give to the vet to park your car, these keys work even though the theft deterant system is active, but they will only work for short periods untill the theft system activates and imobolizes the vehicle. The system is reset when the valet brings your vehicle and you insert your normal (chiped) key.

How do you hook up the ignition to the new sterring column 91 toyota pickup


Looking at terminal block on the vehicle with the connect tang to top wires are numbered from right to left 1 to 4 then bottom right to ldft 5 to 8Terminals 3 & are accessory on . 2,3&4 are ignition on and turn on 7&8. When you turn to start terminals 1,2,4,7,8connect. Terminal 4 is battery power thru fuseable link. Terminal 2 goes to Ignition gauge fuse and turn fuse. Terminal 1 goes to daytime rinning light relay. Terminal 3 goes to acc fuse or radio. Terminal 8 goes to another fuseable link to batt. terminal goes to starter motor. Hope that helps

Truck won't start and security light is on, not flashing.


if you dont have in depth knowledge of vehicle systems, this will be difficult.
security/immoboliser problems are best scanned to pin point the problem.
if your key is the transponder type, have you checked/replaced its battery?
