Question about 1998 Toyota RAV4
Its a standard transmission, I set it last night like normal but this morning when I pressed it to start it the park lights flashed 3 times but didn't start and now I cant get it to "prime"/ the steps that I have to take to pre set it wont work. what do I do?
After market remote start system.
why not ask the guy that installed it how to fix it.
after all the dealer can't its not stock now, and risky.(liabilities.etc.)
read the book on the remote custom box?
and the diagnosis section yet? if lost download it and read it first.
for me to fix it ( yes i can) id need to be hands on. with my meter
at the book. Take it to any ASE shop and ask them if they will try.
some wont for obvious reasons. (hacked cars)

There is either a cable not getting a very good connection, solenoid has problems, or there is a wiring leading to a relay that has a bad connections. How is your ignition? Is it loose or have loose wires?
also check the magnetic switch mounted on the starter housing, is supplied by current from the starting switch circuit of the ignition switch. This magnetic action of the switch mechanically engages the starter clutch assembly and electrically closes the heavy switch which connects it to the battery. The starting switch circuit consists of the starting switch contained within the ignition switch, a transmission neutral safety switch or clutch pedal switch, and the wiring necessary to connect these in series with the starter solenoid or relay.

SOURCE: car wont start battery is fine
I would look at the cables from the battery, possible that one of them has a break in causing the car not to start. I had that same type problem with my 02 Nissan and that was the solution.
Hope this helps

As you say the tacho/speedo come "back up to normal" after the incident, I assume that they either stop working or become erratic while the dash lights are misbehaving.
If so, this sounds like a dash wiring electrical problem.
The O/D OFF light is lit by the switch on the shifter (switch also inputs to the ECU). The ENGINE light is driven also from the ECU but the SLIP light is driven from the ABS/VSC computer, although these two computers do communicate.
Best plan of attack would be interrogate the ECU for error codes or ask a Toyota dealer to do so. At least you'll have some clue to any problems that the ECU's may have picked up.
Contact me about checking for ECU error codes if you want to attempt it yourself. Although the Caldina has an OBDC2 connector, as I understand it it's not 100% compliant, so you'll need a Toyota compatible reader. Fortunately teh codes are also output via the CHECK ENGINE light.
If there's no problems there, I'd be pulling the instrument cluster and checking for wiring problems. I'm not sure where in the world you are but most ex- JDM vehicles could have modified with timers, speed-cut or fuel-cut devices that either have been poorly installed or are playing up and causing electrical problems.

Sounds like your battery is dead. Try charging it up and starting the vehicle.Bring your vehicle to a shop to have the battery and alternator tested. If the alternator is not working the battery will drain and all of the symptoms you explained can happen.

The 97 has an allen head(14mm?) drain plug on the pan. Drain the fluid and
exaimine it in a clear container. Good transmission fluid smells like new ATF and is usually red. If yours is dark and smells burnt AND/OR HAS DEBRIS IN IT which I think is likely, you will need a new ******.

Testimonial: "I did what you suggested and the fluid was a dark red color with an awful smell to it. so I changed the filter and the fluid and haven't had the problem any more. Thank you so much for responding to my question, you really saved the day."
