Question about 2012 Toyota Corolla LE 4-Speed AT

1 Answer

We turned up the heat at our 5 year old cottage. Our furnace comes on and the blower starts up, the igniter glows and the gas starts the flame but it runs only for a few minutes. Then the gas stops and the flame goes out as the green light comes on and blinks three times every 10 seconds. There is a trouble shooting information printed on the door that says it could be the pressure switch. I tried to blow air through the rubber tube coming from he pressure switch. It didn't fix the problem. When I sucked air through the tube I could hear a clicking sound. Do I need a new pressure switch? Also the catch had water in it. I blew it out as well but it made no difference either way.

There is a thermocouple that holds the gas valve open as long as there is a flame. This part will wear out with time. Look for a copper colored small tube that runs from the gas valve into the fire box and ends up at the burner close to the flame.

Check for fuel pressure when starting. Fuel pumps have a check valve in them that keep fuel in the rail at the injectors. If the check valve fails, the pump has to pump fuel all of the way up to the engine. Same thing with hot no-restarts. Fuel pump.

SOURCE: engine start-stop push button not working

The vehicle should still be under warranty. Either way it is your best bet to take the vehicle to your local dealer. They will be able to diagnose your problem properly. With newer technologies like push button start their are only more issues that can arise. If you need help locating your nearest dealership I would be glad to assist you further.

I had the same problem with my 99 corolla. It was the solenoid contacts in the starter...they were worn down and didn't either get enough contact or sometimes kind of melt togther (that's why starter spins even after you turn off car and key). Got new contacts and car starts like new!

Clicking noise as furnace tries to start


If you have a gas or fuel oil furnace, that is your igniter trying to light the fuel. If it does it for a few seconds and quits without lighting the furnace, there may be no fuel getting to the burner. Check for fuel supply - oil tank empty? gas line turned off? etc

Colt diesel takes a long time to start. glow plugs and battery are new. some one suggested glowplug relays or the black box. what can i do to check if its any of the two or what do you recommend i do


if the ignition controls the amount of time glow plugs are on for flick the ignition off and on 3-5 times each time letting the glow plug symbol glow untill it turns off then try starting. if its still slow to fire your glow plugs are not working at all. start by backtracing the glow plugs from the adjoining bar back to wherever it comes from for breaks, then replace your glow plug relay in the fuse box usually.

if its manual glowing just glow it for 10-12 seconds and try.if its not firing then the glows arent getting the power they need

Starting issue, I have a 1993 ford f250 7.3l pre powerstroke. I started the motor and it stalled out like there was a short, now when i turn the key my glow plugs do not fire and wait to start doesnt show...


On some Models the glow plug Relay does not have an integrated Power Relay. This means there is a second Relay before the glow plug Relay that feeds it power.

You should check the wires running to the glow plug Relay for power with the key ON. Check some other wires off of the Ignition switch to make sure your 20 year old Ignition switch is good.

There are some sites which show vehicle wiring. Autozone has a free section after Registering your vehicle but it takes a little sorting through the Help section. There should be a fuse to protect the above Relays.

Make sure you find the Diesel-equipped wiring circuit. Diesel ignitions are different from gas units.

Furnace will heat to desired temp and flame will go out but fan continues to run


This is normal to a point. A thermostat turns the furnace on and off as you know. However there is a separate thermostat, usually on the side of the plenum that runs the blower fan. It will keep the fan running until the air temp in the plenum drops below a certain temp and then turns the fan off. If it's not shutting off at all then that thermostat is likely bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Car wont start diesel engine Could it be the 'glow plug'? what is a glow plug? how can i test?


A glow plug is a small heating element in the cylinder. It heats the diesel so that starting can be made easy. Is your car standing in the open frozen parking If yes, then it would require a lot of battery power to first heat all the cylinders and then turn the engine to start. What we do in such conditions is to light up some fire under the car and heat the fuel system enough for the diesel to warm up a little and thus save the battery for glow plugs. Generally, all vehicles have an indicator light which comes on when the glow plugs are ready for starting. The diesel will ignite on compression, but it has to reach the cylinder and thus has to be flowing. In cold it freezes and hence the need for glow plugs and the heat. If it is parked in heated parking then the need for glow plugs decreases.

1997 VW JETTA DIESEL GLOW PLUGS


The glow plug relay is responsible for the duration of glow plugs, this needs to be the starting point. You should get a 12v out for so many seconds when ignition is switched on.
I have taken the cover off relays in the past, cleaned up the internals, sprayed with circuit cleaner and got plenty more years out of them, worth a try.

Starting my car


Is this car a diesel or gas powered? If it is diesel, the buzzer and light is to warn that the glow plug is still heating and the more the glow-plug heats the car will start easier on colder days. Diesels make combustion by the heat of compression of the fuel by the piston, unlike a gas engine that uses spark from the spark plug to ignite the fuel and make combustion.

Good luck and I hope that helps
