Question about 2006 Scion tC

Alarm comes on when I turn ignition and car won't start, Alarm gone haywire

I was picking daughter up at school, parked, rolled windows down. She got in, I turned key and the alarm went off. I stopped the alarm by hitting unlock on key then tried to start car and dash lights came on but car sounded like it was struggling then the alarm came on again. Doors locked and the cycle repeated over and over. It is sitting at the school. Took battery out to have tested tomorrow but my gut is saying this may not be the issue (although corrosion has been building up on cables for three yesrs) I did clean them. I have had the car since 2007 it has 84K miles and has been great until this. Any suggestions>

May be the battery, since all the components work off of it you need to check all connections, low battery, batterys are only good , if you have a 3 yr old battery, it is only going to be good for 3 yrs, or less, depends on how long it set on the shelf.

SOURCE: Car won't start. But i know battery is good

you have a red top thats the problem
read the lit on the battery they are not designed for your uses

if you want a battery that can take abuse put in a deep cycle or a reg led acid but the sealed gell cells are not designed for under hood use in the long term look at the charging cycle required on the owners manule it it self is a pain in the ***

My 2004 buick rendezvous won't start sometimes. If it's in neutral and rolling it will or if the starter is jumped. I have replaced the starter already. What could it be?


Sounds like the neutral safety switch has gone bad. These are on almost every kind of vehicle now. The switch prevents the car from starting unless the automatic transmission is in park or neutral. For a manual transmission, the clutch pedal has to be depressed. On a motorcycle, the clutch handle has to be depressed. You can pick up the switch at any parts store near you and replace it yourself if you are mechanically inclined. If not, I'm sure a tech or dealership will be glad to help you with the problem.

Good luck!

Xterra will not turn on. windows won't roll down, doors stays locked. won't roll over at all. odometer won't come up


Do you get any dash lights when you turn the key on? If not, you could just have a dead battery.
