Question about 2004 Toyota Matrix

1 Answer

All the lights flash but the engine will not start

After driving a good distance when I turned off the car the dash lights and parking lights started flashing and I heard a clicking noise like the turn signal. I could not restart the engine. There has been that same clicking noise off an on for awhile but I can tape my left foot against the car near the clutch and it will stop or start. Now I can not start my car. I am certain the security system is an after market one.

Find the security system and write down the make and model. Use internet to find owner's manual, or how to disable the system.

SOURCE: 2000 vw bug shaking and check engine light flashing when driving

You have a really bad misfire going on. i would not drive the car but if you get it towed you can get the engine codes read which will give you more of an idea on whats going on. Otherwise its just a guess.

SOURCE: won't start after cleaning battery terminals

Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm with starter disable. By disconnecting the battery the alarm reset and the defualt setting is usually to set the alarm automatically (active arming). You have three options..
A. If you have the key fob that went with the alarm you can disarm the alarm.
B. If no key fob is available you can disconnect the battery again, turn the ignition key to the on position and reconnect the battery. This usually doesn't allow the alarm to set and allows the car to start.
C. Remove the aftermarket alarm system. This is usually the long term fix i recommend if the fob isn't available. Option B should get you going though.

Check the front lights. Usually if i flashes fast it indicate a bulb is out on that side.

you really need the dealer for this one. car is too new and should be under warrenty. This should not of happen. Most likely you have a computer issue with codes stored that will direct the technician in fixing this.

Look under the dash by the parking brake and try to see if any wires are being moved or chafed by the parking brake linkages. That is what I have found in the past.

put a remote starter cycloid on the firewall that's hooked to the one on the starter to get rid of the having for it to cool in order start it. At least that solved my problem. As for the brake light flashing..well mine does too but everything works....it's most likely a short somewhere. The biggest problem is driving off with the parking brake set. As for the hood. My paint is fried as well. I think it's because there is no insulation installed under the hood. Who knows. Good luck

Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.


the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck
