I would say that the problem is caused by whatever the engine code is stored in the computer. Auto Zone or Advanced Auto will get the codes from your computer, at no charge. Then you can use that information to determine what is causing your problem. It sounds as if you might have a bad throttle postion sensor, or a clogged fuel filter, but without getting the code/s, I can't really say anything for sure, it would only be an educated guess, and these parts are too expensive to just try to throw parts at it.

I happen to cross terminal the battery while i was trying to jump start the car, have change the fuse , but the engine light is on and the car won't rev.


Check for the code on the computer to see if there is a code set for a particular system.

A 2005 Toyota Corolla would use an obd-II scanner to retrieve codes.

Something may have burnt out in addition to the fuse when the wires were crossed when jump starting.

My 2006 Toyota Corolla won't start. When I turn the light, all the dashboard lights come on, the radio and clock both come on, but it doesn't even sound like the car is trying to turn over.


Car batteries are very powerful. It's not uncommon for lights and radios to work eventhough the battery is too weak to turn over the engine.

I would try to find someone to give you a jump start. This would atleast help determine if the battery/charging system is the problem.

If it does jump start, let it idle for 10 minutes or so, then turn the engine off and try to start without a jump start. If it does start that would mean that the alternator is working properly. But, if it doesn't start you could have a bad alternator.

If you are able to get the car to a parts place most of them offer a free diagnostic test on batteries and alternators.

I hope this is helpful.

Were there any water leaks into the interior? Or did you ever jump start someone else's car? I had the same exact problem resulting from jump starting a friend's car. It spiked the electronic control unit (ECU) computer. I changed the ECU and the problem was fixed.

Orange check engine light fpr 2005 toyota corolla


An orange check engine light means there is an electronic failure in the engine control system. It could be anything from a loose fuel cap, to a bad sensor on the engine. It is not an emergency, but you should get it checked out. A red engine light is an emergency and requires you to immediately stop the car. Yellow is a warning.

What are the causes of check engine light? Can check engine light affect the auto transmission system?


Have you had your air filter changed or checked recently? If you've had it done somewhere other than the dealership that could be your issue. There is a sensor that connects to the enclosure around the air filter. If it is not correctly reattached after service it will cause the check engine light to come on.
Even if you do discover the issue and correct it, the check engine light will persist for server times you turn the engine on and off but usually by the 3-4th day it will turn off on its own. If you think it's mote serious, take it back in for service.
I can't tell you how many times I've taken my Highlander in for service at a non- Toyota dealer (bc I travel for work) and the check engine light comes on bc they check the air filter and neglect to reattach the sensor. Hope this helps.
