Townace won't start!!! Help!!!


First thing I would do is make sure the batter cables are secure and tight to the battery post and make sure the red cable is to the + side of the battery and black is on the - side of the battery. They need to be tight and snug in order to put out the amps needed to start the car. YOu can also put a trickle charger on the battery over night at the 2 amp setting and make sure it is charged up. I would guess one of those problems is what is causing you your grief.

Good luck

INGINE DOESn't START P1683


Depends on what are you hearing when you try to start. Does the Engine sound like it is trying to start, does the starter even spin? or when you turn the key you hear 1 click but all the lights and everything comes on? If you hear multiple clicks and your lights are dim, that means your battery is done. There are a few things you can check before spending a lot of money. First check to see if your battery is good, 2 check the battery terminals to make sure they are tight, 3 check the condition of the battery cables if they are old or rusty, try to replace them with new ones, they cost 8-10 bucks. 4 try to replace the starter relay in the engine fuse box, this costs 12 dollars usually. if none of these are the issue, then its either you starter solenoid or the starter motor has gone bad. I suggest instead of replacing the solenoid, replace the whole motor which comes with the solenoid.

Could be a number of things but may want to begin by checking wiring to starter, battery, or even the ignition switch. These components may not turn your engine light on.

Won't start


Switch on head lights or cabin light. If they doesn't come on or is weak, the battery is flat. Ensure that you switch off the lights.
With ignition switched on, assuming the lights on the instrument panel cames on and your immobiliser is deactivated, turn ignition to start. You should hear the solenoid at the starter making a click sound. If not, the battery is flat or the starter solenoid is faulty. If it does make a click sound, the battery could be too low to turn the starter or the starter is faulty. Assuming the immobiliser is working correctly, and the starter tries to turn the engine but it doesn't want to turn, the gasket could be blown and the cylinder filled with water, or the engine could be seized.
Hope it is not the last case. MarioCpt

Sounds to me like the starter or starter relay, OR did you check all the fuses? When the starter doesn't click or turn over the engine it is likely a problem with it or the power supply to it. Start with the easy thing. check the fuses, then the relay.
The P0300 is usually caused by something other than the spark plugs or coils. A fuel/oxygen sensor can cause this code. I would say that doesn't have anything to do with not starting.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Did you also change the starter solenoid when you changed the starter? That is a possible cause.

Can you turn the engine over by hand from the crankshaft pulley to make sure the engine is not frozen or blocked? You will need a large socket to do that, but if you can't turn the engine over by hand, the starter won't be able to turn the flywheel either. The one click is probably the solenoid firing the starter piston to the flywheel but then nothing makes me think the engine is frozen in some way.

But if the starter and solenoid and battery is trying to turn a frozen flywheel, you should notice some drawdown of light intensity. Do you notice any change?

1991 Lexus 400 - engine doesn't start - battery seems charged - 12.3 volts - makes clicking sound only - doesn't turn over at all.


Is it one click or multiple clicks. If it's multiple clicks, it sounds like a dead battery. Voltage isn't always an indicator of a good battery, you need to have enough cranking amps to be able to start an engine also. If you have dash lights and it only clicks once, you could have a bad starter. An easy way to check this is to try and jump start the vehicle. If it starts up with a jump start, you need a new battery. If it still doesn't start up and it just clicks, you probably need a new starter.

Good Luck!

Guages when crazy. Now won't even try to start.


You likely have it repaired by now but it sounds like a classic case of oxidized battery or cable connection (sometimes mis-diagnosed as bad battery but cured with new (clean) battery)
