Question about 1999 Toyota Camry
Intermittantly I will get no response from the ignition when I go to start. Key turns with no response.I can drive then park the go to start then nothinng. It can go a few days alright then does it again. Auto electrician replaced the starter motor. Went ok a couple of days then did it again. Of course wouldn't do it when I took it back. He did admit they had trouble getting correct voltage to the starter motor. He put in a relay to boost the voltage when he did the starter. As he couldn't work out what the problem was he put a wire bypass so I could start the car direct from the battery. I saw a identical post fom 1999 on this list and was wondering if the problem was rectified and what the outcome was. Can anyone help? My 1999 Camry has only 60,000 miles on it. There was only a clicking noise when I turned the key and the engine wouldn't start. This is the first time that has happened.
Sounds like you need an ignition switch. It's the electrical part on the back of the key and tumble assembly.If you can get it to not start check the starter wire off the back of the ignition switch for 12 volts while in the start position.It should have 12 volts . If not the switch is bad. I would have all that ( add on )Stuff taken off ASAP. That will not make things any easier to diagnos or repair. The switch is a fairly cheap item and is not to hard to change.I would get a switch and take off all the add on's and go from there. Electric gremlins are frustraiting when they won't act up all the time. Good luck and let me know....Dan PS> the 99 made noise when they went to start it. that click was the solinoid engaging.That car had a bad starter. You say yours does nothing,not the same symptom....Dan
