I have a 1997 Toyota Avalon. Sometimes just makes a clicking noise when trying to crank it. Sometimes it trys to turn over then stops and makes the clicking noise again. Usually starts if you keep trying....


Have the starter or solenoid checked. It's possible to get second hand parts from a Salvage/Breakers yard. If you don't mind getting dirty and can use basic hand tool. You may want to invest in a Repair Manual: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/156392336X/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=toyota0d-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=156392336X It can be very useful for a DIY'er .

Avalon won't start, fast clicking noises


Sounds like a dead battery issue. If someone can jump start you with battery cables connect red to red post on battery and black to your car frame or other ground. If the car starts easily it indicates a discharged battery. Then you need to determine why the battery is discharged. If you can drive to a local autoparts store they can use a machine to do a battery and charging system diagnosis at the curbside. Autozone, Advance, or Oreilly all do this. If the battery is the original from the car when purchased it is probably time to replace it. If its a new one (2 years or less) the culprit may be the alternator. The clicking noise is a dead give away that its a battery or alternator issue. The clicking by the way is the starter trying to engage and turn motor over to crank it. Its not getting enough power to turn the engine over (a tough task) and is clicking.

97 toyota avalon was running went dead while driving ,now wont start lights go dim,abs light and traction lights come on when jump started


Sound like you have a bad alternator, poss bad battery too.If you can jump start it with a volt meter check voltage at battery should have above 13.5 volts, do this after you unhook jumper cables and engine running.If bad voltage reading replace alternator make sure you charge battery before starting engine with new alternator or it could damage alternator.If good voltage have battery check.Hope this helped.
