Car won't start 2002 toyata ipsum nothing works apart from lights in side and head light's dash doesn't light up either ?? Any ideas


Start with the basics: Do you have all your fluids at normal levels? Does the engine turn over when you turn the key? Check the voltage on the car battery -- it should be between 12.8 - 14V without load, any lower and your battery may be too flat to start the car. That check engine light means the onboard computer does know something's up. Go get an OBD2 scanner and plug it in, read the code, and work from there.

If your engine is turning over, then the fuel isn't igniting for whatever reason. Check your battery, check your plugs, and check your fuel pump to make sure the engine is getting fuel.

2002 Toyota Rav4....check engine light""is


Here are two of the most common causes of the check engine light.

Most common, MAF ( mass air flow ), sensor. A faulty MAF prevents the computer from determining the correct fuel/air mix ratio.

Oxygen sensor. ( front and rear, front meaning before the catalytic converter, rear meaning after the catalitic converter. The front measures the fuel/air mix being sent through the catalitic converter, the back measures the emmisions and lets the computer know if any fuel/air mix ratios need to be adjusted. Both of these can trigger the check engine light.

I hope this helps you.

My idea is there will be a issue if you don't get the warning light attended to. There are several reasons for the light to warn you to get it checked. My idea is you should get it checked before you have to start walking.

Check engine light will not go out ,and they told me that it was a fuse by the gas line that need to be replased,


if light stays on it means the problem is an active code meaning what ever the cause it is broken, you need to drive it over to auto zone or advance and have them pull the codes for you they do it for free.

Check engine light is on


If that happens, like mine has been on for the last 3 years, it usually means there is a hole in the exhaust pipe somewhere and it is not serious. The only repair would be to replace the entire exhaust system and headers which would be $1000's of dollars. I hope that helps

1994 toyota pickup idling problems


Could be a throttle position sensor going bad or a loose or leaking vacumm line or loose or worn wiring harness. You had mentioned the engine starts heating up. Do you mean overheating or operating above normal temperature? Sounds like a vacumm issue with the fluctuating idle. Check for worn vacumm lines and check to see if the vacumm is functioning. Sometimes a simple vacumm line with a loose connection or a small hole in it can affect your idle. Old lines are easily replaceable and an inexpensive place to start, then try your egr valve, pcv valve, brake booster vacumm line, oxygen sensor could be worn and affecting the mapping of fuel and air on the computer. Usually the check engine light will come on in this case.
