Question about 2000 Toyota Corolla
I just bought a 2000 ve, it has 86,000km on it, with an auto transmission. I have a remote starter which starts the car every time no problem, but when i try to use my key, the car wont let me. I have started it with the key a few times, i just done know the sequence of events im supposed to do. When i get the key into the start position, the interior lights flash on, and the cd player starts up, but the engine doesnt crank and there are no sounds from under the hood. When i have succesfully started the engine, the transmision was in park. I have read the manual, and tried what is has said, but the manual is in french, so i suspect i must be missing something crucial. Ive tried pressing the brake, pulling the e-brake, turning the steering wheel, turning on the lights, the rear defogger, the cigarette lighter, putting on my seatbelt. Everything i can think of, so if anyone knows my situation and a solution your help wuld be greatly appreciated. Thanks. I have a similar problem with my 2003 honda accord. it doesn't start with the key. what is the sequence that I need to follow???
Well, it sounds like your ignition switch is bad or the remote starter you have also has an alarm with a starter immobilizer. Do you have the owners manual to your remote starter? If not you can always remove the immobilizer part of the alarm by hooking the start wire back together from the ignition switch that is cut when you hook it up.

That car together with the alarm,have a "starter kill"relay. The alarm works fine but when the relay is "resting" the electrical contact is no letting the appropriate signal go through. Locate the relay and change it. Will cost you 8 dollars or less in any auto part.
