Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Recently I had a clicking under the hood and could not start my car. I assumed it was the battery so I had it jump started. After replacing the battery and driving it about 20 miles the battery was dead again. Alternator was no good. Replaced that as well and now the car won't start at all and won't even turn over. No instrument lights come on other than the open door light and the hazards and headlights. Nothing else works! The battery is brand new and the connection are good. I Think I have a blown alternator fuse but would THAT prevent the car from starting???? Please help!!! PS I am a girl by the way.

    Thank you. I thought that may be the problem. I have a blown alternator fuse. Going to replace tomorrow. I hope thats what is causing this problem because I am at my wits end with thing. I also have an after market anti theft device that disables the starter. I hate to have to spend any money because I just bought a brand new battery AND an alternator!!

Sounds like a fuseable link burned out. If the battery was not disconected while the alternator was being replaced this could have happened. It could have also happened if jumper cables were momentarly hooked up wrong.

Will not start on its own have to jump it off

When you jump it, Does the starter turn fast and it starts right up? If so replace the battery. If the starter turns slow, but starts. Your looking at replacing the battery and starter. I would do the starter first. You may get some more life out of the battery. When starters drag, they tend to short and drain the battery.

Jump start audi a6 4.2

There should be a positive terminal under the hood under a red cap as i am assuming ur battery is not visible, use something steel on the motor for a ground, sometimes the batteries to newer vehicles are under the rear seat so if ur having trouble finding out how to even hook up the cables i would look under the hood for the terminal first, will probly be in a random place then if u cant find that or the battery check under the back seats

My buick lesabre is having problems starting. the battery is charged, the lights come on when i turn the key but when i try to start it all i get is a click. what is the problem and how can i get to where...

Typically a battery can power the lights, etc. and still not start the car when it is "bad". The clicking is the starter not getting enough juice from the battery. Jump start the car and go to an auto parts store and get the battery checked. I suspect it will need replacing. In my 2002 the battery is under the back seat but there is a jumping post under the hood.

I tried jumping the car at first it would take a jump but not it wont makes clicking sound when trying to start.Or it just wont say anything.

Hi, the problem is either the starter relay or the solenoid. The relay is in one of the boxes under the hood. A quick way to test is to pull the relay out of its socket and use a jumper from the battery positive to the relay terminals in the socket. Please leave the key off for this test. Assuming you have a good battery, one of the terminals should excite the solenoid. If the engine cranks, replace the relay. If not, replace the solenoid. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Try checking relays in the fuse box under the hood. If all checks out ok, check timing belt/chain.

Clicking noise under hood of 2001 Chrysler Sebring

Sounds like you have a dead battery. You either need a jump start with jumper box or clean battery terminals and see if that works

Van wont start

I had a similiar problem recently. The car would not start and no sign of life no lights etc. I jump started it acouple of times but then even this did not work. It would jump start but right after the cables are disconnected it would stop. We checked the battery it was good. Turned out it was the alternator. It was not working properley so the system was not charging itself or even when it starts was not generating enough energy to keep it going. Changed the alternator, never had the same problem again. You can have your battery and alternator checked at an autozone shop for free.
