Question about 2009 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Cant unlock car

Hi friend. I have a toyoto corolla 2009. Yesterday when I got into the car and turned the ignition on i noticed that the whole display box is lighted with the icons that are lighted when you turn in the key for the first time. In other words when U turn the keys 1 time the display is lighted with a couple of icons right, and when you start the car by turning it twice, these icons disappear right -- in my case when i turned on the cars the icons from the firts turn stayed on lighted (icons on the right side under the seatbelt flshing with a (!) and the battery icon with + and - displayed and the icon that looks like a 1970s' camcorder on the left side of the panel. These usually get lighted when you just turn on the car to listen to music, etc. But when you start the car these disappear right. But these stayed on yesterday. I called my husband from the parking lot yetserday and he said it is not possible. I could however drive back home. And when I reached home and turned off the car and turned it on again, it was gone. My husband thuought I was bluffing him (thats a different story!). We didnt use the car after that. Now my keys wont even open the car. I have a spare set, which is also working fine like the regular one as the red light display comes on at the keys. But the car doesnt open. Neither do I hear the sound of the car unlocking. Whats happening, please.

SOURCE: CHECK icon displayed on dashboard of toyota corolla 2003 salon

The CHECK (check engine) light can account for a hundred plus different failures on a modern vehicle. It is there to let you know of failures in the emissions or drivetrain systems of your car.
Essentially it can be as simple a bad gas cap or as complex as internal transmission part failures. You will need to take it to a repair shop or an auto parts store to have the diagnostic code scanned to get an idea of what is wrong. Most auto parts stores will do this for free.
The light can go out by itself if the problem goes away, but can take a very long time. Certain codes will take over 250 drive cycles without a problem detected before they clear.
If the light is lit solid, it is typically fine to drive until you can get it diagnosed. If the light is FLASHING, however, it indicates a misfire so great that severe engine damage may occur. If the light is FLASHING, turn the car off and have it towed to prevent damage.

Key hot when removed form the ignition


I purchased a 2010 Corolla in Jul\t 2009. For two months, several times, the key was hot when I removed it from the ignition. I was told it was due to the Immobilizer chip in the handle. I'm concerned as it happened again in Sept 2010. and if it does this periodically I feel in time it could cause a dangerous problem as cars have caught fire due to ignition problems. What response did you get from your dealer or how did you sove your problem??

Corolla won't start or turnover


could be a fuse, electrical problem going to starter, bad relay for starter (located under hood in fuse box) but more than likely your solenoid is shot on the starter itself. also relay should click when energized you will notice it if you have your hand on it while turning ignition switch. and you need constant hot (12 volts), switch hot(12 volts with ignition switch turned like your cranking car) and ground wires landed at your starter, a cheap volt meter from wal-mart is not a bad tool to have 10 dollars to test all connections and make sure to have parts store check your starter before you buy one
