Question about 1996 Toyota Tercel

2 Answers

I have a 1996 Toyota Tercel with an aftermarket alarm system that I'm uninstalling. There are two large gauge wires from the ignition bundle, black/yellow & white/red that have taps on them. A third smaller gauge wire, white/black that was cut & installed on the alarm bundle. I removed all taps (including two power taps on the fuse box) and reconnected the black /white wire. Everything else was removed. The problem is the car wont start. I get acc. power & everything electrical works.

Check the motor starter wire, may be it was disconnected while the alarm unit installed.

Remove aftermarket car anti-theft system


If it is an aftermarket alarm system it is tied into your starter circuit coming off of your ignition switch. You need to remove plastic covers under steering wheel on toyota vehicles it is phillips head screws and some 10mm bolts. Find alarm system this is tricky but possible find the wire that is tapped into a thick wire leading up to steering column to the key ignition switch it should be a thicker wire sometimes red in color that wire is the starter interupt for the alarm system remove that wire (cut it) at alarm side and starter function should be restored.
IF IT IS AN AFTERMARKET SYSTEM hope this helps

I boiught a 1999 toyoyta camry v-6 with an aftermarket alarm system. what is the best way to bypass it?


Pull the driver's kick panel, the panel under the steering wheel and steering column cover. Remove the aftermarket alarm. Most are T-tapped into factory wiring and can be unplugged. If they did a poor job installing it you may have to cut it out and solder factory wiring back together. If the alarm is the cause of the no start, it's usually a bad connection near the ignition switch.

Wont start


Does it crank and not start or won't crank at all? If it won't crank at all then the starter or solenoid that fires it could be defective. Also if it won't crank could be the neutral safety switch in the transmission keeping it from starting. Is there an alarm on this car? Alarms (especially aftermarket ones) usually have a starter interrupt circuit that prevents the ignition switch from activating the starter when they are set. Factory alarms may prevent the ignition system from firing if they are set or defective. Anyone been doing "non-standard" wiring under the dash recently??? Check that first then check the large gauge wiring connections, starter, ignition switch wiring and alarm(s) in that order and you should find your problem. This issue can be fairly simple but can also quickly turn into an complicated electrical troubleshooting nitemare. You may want to consider having it towed to a reputable shop for professional attention.

My 1993 Toyota Tercel does not start when key is turned. New battery, all fuses checked and fine. When the doors get opened, hazard lights start blinking for 15 blinks, then pause, then 15 blinks. This...


This sounds like a starter disable feature of a car alarm. Somewhere under the dash you are going to find a box with the start wires running to it. The start wire is black with a white stripe and is thick, about a 12 gauge wire. It will come from the ignition switch and run into a relay or box. It could be installed anywhere as it is aftermarket. Once you find it, you can reconnect both ends of the starter wire and you can start it with the key. I would disconnect the power to the alarm or your lights are going to flash at random. The factory alarm (just in case it is the issue, but that isn't likely) is located behind the radio and ashtray.

We have an aftermarket car alarm installed, but have lost the remote. Our battery died and when we jumped it, the alarm reactivated itself and now we can't turn it off! We cannot start the vehicle unless...


I don't think that the alarm can be bypassed once installed. So you'll have to contact the aftermarket car alarm installer that put it in to try to get a new fob that will work with it, or else have it uninstalled by an alarm dealer.

I think the wires need to be traced to deactivate the alarm system, one way or another, because most alarms cut into the ignition or start wiring to prevent the vehicle from running.

Fans dont work and overheats 94 toyota tercel


Most systems work pretty much the same. First check the fans themselves by hot wiring them to the battery. If they work, you need to check the engine temp sensor (some vehicles use one for gauge and fans, others use a separate one for fans) relay, and of course any fuses.
You will help yourself a lot by getting either a chilton or haynes manual to show you how to do testing.

I have a 1995 toyota tercel that has been running rough and now won't start at all. I looked at the sparkplugs and they were full of fuel. Could it be caused by a faulty ignition knock sensor?


Not 100 percent sure what typr of ignition system is
in that car, but check that all the spark plug wires are
all connected properly at the ignition coil. Check the
wiring at the coil and at the chassis ground to make sure it is all tight.Good Luck.

1996 toyota tercel air conditioner will not work


Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Let us try to help.

Yes, you read correctly; if the refrigerant charge is low,or the refrigerant has leaked out, the AC compressor will not activate. Pressure switches built into the system inturupt the power to the AC clutch if there is insufficient system pressure.

I would suggest taking the vehicle to a qualified garage, and have the service tech there hook his set of 'AC Gauges" to the car. After he does that, he can tell you if you need a partial charge, of if you system is empty. I would def recommend the car be checked with the AC gauges; as adding refrigerant to the system without knowing how much is currently in it can damage the compressor.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!

Alarm


No, the factory alarm is armed and diarmed either by the power locks locking/unlocking or there will be two wires to arm/disarm the factory alarm. Depending on the specs, it may auto-arm the alarm every time the doors are all closed and locked, so you may have to get an aftermarket alarm or wire up a switch to deactivate it.
