SOURCE: When I turn the key

If you can hear a relay clicking, then your starter relay should be OK. Try tapping the starter solenoid (on the starter) with a hammer while someone cranks the ignition over. Sometimes it'll get jammed or stuck and won't start the car. Try that out - if it works, then you may need to overhaul or replace your starter.

SOURCE: 1998 problem starting?

Coming from a Toyota tech, it sounds like the starter contacts are worn and time for a starter rebuild. parts are only available from toyota and and not expensive, and labour should be 1.5 hours.

SOURCE: intermittent starting problem on 99 Camry

You need to have the starter removed and have the starter contacts replaced. They are burnt. This is a common problem.

Clicking sound from the fuse box near the battery on my 1998 Camry even when the car is off

That box holds fuses and relays. The clicking comes from the relays both when each relay is activated and deactivated. This is perfectly normal.

Turn one of your turn signals on. Notice that the clicking sound coincides with the turn signal lights flashing.

Where is the turn signal relay on a 1998 toyota camry

It will either be inder the dash or under the hood. Best way to find it is, with the car engine off, turn the key to the on position (don't start the car) and then switch on the indicator. If you listen carefully you will hear the relay clicking. Follow the sound and you will find the relay. If you can put your hand on it you will feel it clicking. Bazinga.

1986 toyota camry fuel pump doesn't receive power, where is relay located?

The typical placement for the relay is under hood, mounted to wheel well, it may be on either side. Look for rectangular plastic case about 3" w by 8" l with wires attached. To access look for clips holding top cover on pry clips out and remove cover. Relays are about 1.2" square, usually black, and can be removed by pulling directly up. Relay diagram should be on inside of cover. There will be more than one (sometimes as many as 8) and if diagram is missing have a helper turn ignition on and listen for a click to narrow down which relay it is. Often times all relays are the same and you can pull one out and swap it with another to see if pump will work. Good Luck.

Radiator fan is on after engine is shut off Toyota 1998 Camry


You have an unfortunatly very common problem.
You have a sticking cooling fan relay.

We see this quite often in our service department.

Here is what you need to do:
With the key off, engine off, and the the cooing fan running, open the fuse/relay box, under the hood, on the driver side of the engine compartment.

Locate the 3 cooling fan relays, as marked under the lid. If you do not have a lid, simply remove relays until the cooling fan stops.

Take this relay to a Toyota dealership parts dept, and have them sell you a replacement.
You cannot 'fix' the problem with the relay, the relay needs to be replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa for advice.

Battery draining with ignition off, clicking sound

Find the relay making the clicking noise by setting your finger on top lightly, then check map on under side of cover for identification.

You can try this==== take a screw driver and tap on the relay switch with the handle while somebody is turning the ignition. This is only a test, not a definate solution. If you haven't already, check the starter solonoid. My opinion, if the ignition was bad, it wouldn't even click at the relay, but without testing it's hard to say.

1998 problem starting?

The relay is probably bolted in, and will have to be removed by unbolting it after removal of the fuse box. It could be the relay, although I doubt it. More likely other components beginning to fail such as the starter switch, the neutral safety switch, the contacts in the starter solenoid, or the battery itself.
