SOURCE: Toyota RAV 4 1.8 A - engine doesn't start after battery exchange

may sound like a dumb question but you didnt by chance hook up the battery or jumpstart the car with polarity reversed by accident at some point during this process? i would check all the underhood main fuses and interior fuses as well, what is the condition of the battery post clamps? if they are badly corroded be sure to clean them very well and wash them with a baking soda and water solution im thinking one of the cables or smaller wires that hook up at the battery is broken or possibly some freak accident happend and the computers need to be flashed at a dealer. either way i wish you luck please rate -jeff

yes theres is, try locking and unlocking the pass/side door with the key. you can check for power at the starter at the small wire if theres power at that wire when the key is held in the crank position then you have a bad starter try taping on starter while key is held in start if its starts when tapping then starter is bad,heres a diagram to show you were to tap and where to check for power, hope this helps.4a6e88f.jpg8d713e8.jpg

Battery is fully charged lights come on but power to dash and turning the key wont turn the engine over. not clicks no sound car intidacator lights come on along with the ding ding when the door is open....


Probably your security system or the safety interlock. If the security light is not on, try giggling the shifter or starting in neutral.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

1999 Toyota 4-Runner sometimes won't start


Sounds like the starter is getting ready to go out. I'd look at being ready to replace it soon. If it is a stick shift transmission car, you can PUSH start the car, but you probably want to get it done before this happens. This is what mine did, click, click, start, over a period of about 2 weeks before it finally went out. Replaced it, starts first time every time now.

Hope this helps.

i think that your dc motor incharge of opening and closing the door is still fed by voltage somehow , you should check the fuse that you are removing if it is the right one , after that you should see a spcialist . check the wiring .
