Look for the starter(up top sitting over transmission) and have someone hit it (not too hard)with a hammer while key is held in the crank position,if car starts you will have to ck connections at starter ,if ok you need another starter,reman starters of any age are never as good as the originals,just not cost effective to buy brand new,too expensive!

You may need to pull the starter,alot of times when they remanufacture a starter they just do a basic test on the solenoid and if it checks they don't replace it.Toyota starters use a bell shaped copper contact that is prone to wear and corrosion,I drive a Toyota myself and had this exact problem.

Sounds like a fuseable link burned out. If the battery was not disconected while the alternator was being replaced this could have happened. It could have also happened if jumper cables were momentarly hooked up wrong.

Check for loose battery terminals. Car will not start without jump because battery is not connected properly. Starter is probably good or car would not start with or without jump. If alternator is bad and not producing current, car would die after running a short while as battery would out of juice and without alternator current the car would die - so probably alternator is good. If connections are all good, get a voltmeter and test the battery voltage - it should be over 12.75 volts. If not, battery is not holding charge.

SOURCE: Intermittently my 91 Camry would not start in

G'day mate it a typical lack of power , check again the conections also to the starter and the earth return leads to the body from the engine also is there a small residual drain from the battery this can be checked with a small amp meter, with the inhibitor switch problem maybe the linkage to box is getting worn and not going completely into park

start the car and pull off on side of the battery and if the car shuts off your alternator is bad if the battery wont stay charged its the battery .If you have a meter check the voltage to the battery it should be around 14.3 volts .

Car wont start, ignition goes on


Probably your battery is dead,enough for the lights or your alternator is bad which is what keeps the battery charged. Or your car is out of petrol.

Try to start the car with the lights on...if the lights go dead when you turn the key then the battery has low voltage. Try jump starting the car.

if the lights stay bright and you hear click, the starter is bad. Try hitting the starter with a hammer a few times. If the car turns over, then get at starter. -

Car needs to be jumped or will not start


Car starts fine with a jump? You sure your battery is good? If the battery is good then you must have a connection bad right at the battery. If you jump it and it starts then the starter is ok. If you jump it and it stays running with lights on, heater fan on, etc. then the alternator is probably ok. The alternator won't keep the car from starting, but it might not let it start the next time if it is not recharging the battery. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Hi there !

I won't say its an alternator problem because the alternator only charges the battery when its on, And it should start with the jump cables even if the battery and the alternator are bad. your Issue is not clear. Does the car start when you jump it ?

Sounds like the battery is completely dead. It's either a faulty battery(go and have it checked) or a dead alternator. To check if the alternator is bad, once the car is started, remove the negative battery cable, if it stays on, then the alternator is good, if it dies immediately, then the alternator is bad and needs replacement.

How can i tell if my starter is going bad? I had


It may not be the starter. The battery could have a weak or dead cell in it and not holding a charge.
The alternator could be bad and charging the battery.
If you have a volt meter, or can get one, with the car running, put the leads from the meter to the battery terminals, red positive, black ground.
Put the meter switch to 12 volts. If the meter reads 14 to 15 volts, the alternator is ok, below that it isn't charging. If it does read 14 to 15 volts, replace the battery.
By the way, the starter is ok, or it wouldn't have started with a jump.
It's more a battery/alternator issue. Clean the battery terminals first and see if that makes a difference.
