Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

My Toyota has a starting problem. After cold temperatures (below freezing) car battery did not have enough power to start the car (when ignition key turned to start the car just made a clicking sound). I bought a new battery and installed, the car still will not start and it no longer makes the clicking sound when the ignition key is turned to start (it makes no sound). What component in the ignition system has gone bad? Thanks

It wont start with ignition but can clutch start and run fine what wrong with ignition


nothing wrong with the ignition but there is with the battery
when trying to start from the key , the battery falls below that required to start and run the ignition system but with a push start there is enough voltage to run the ignition system and then the alternator cuts in to supply power to all the rest
have a load test done on the battery

Not starting when cold


It may be that it is not getting a hot enough spark. Check the CCA (cold cranking amps) rating on your battery. If it's 650 or below, that may be your issue, a cold battery has less power. Try upgrading to a battery with more CCA like 750 CCA or above. Or if your vehicle is garage or carport kept, simply buy an extension cord and a heating blanket, really! Just open your hood and drape it over the "cold" engine at night...Worked for me with my old Datsun 280Z.

===========





Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Engine turns but won't start when temperature id around freezing or below.


Possible bad cold start valve or the sensor that tells the valve to activate when cold. Start by replacing the cold start valve first.

My car wont start, headlights good


Headlights are not a good indicator of how much power the battery has. The power required to start a car is much greater than what is needed to power the headlights. This is common in cold climates when the temperatures drop well below freezing. A jump start or a slow charge from a battery charger should get the car started. Most batteries have a shelf life of about 4 years depending on variables such as climate, electrical options on the car etc. If the battery is 4 years old or older, consider changing it. If it's less than 4 years old, it should recharge once the car is started.

When the weather is very cold (below zero) the car will not even try to turn over it wil only click at the starter and ignition no turn battery is fine never does this any other time. only cold, but once...


It is normal for batteries to lose a good deal of their power due to cold temperatures. If you want better starting power, try using a battery charger/maintainer overnight. It should charge at no more than 2 amps. The slow trickle charging overnight will charge and warm up the battery and allow it to develop full power for a cold morning start.

Car wont start, when i turn the key i only hear 1 click and the check charging system come on. all lights, radio, horn and heater come on


Sounds like the starter could be going bad or frozen. But before I did that I would check the battery to see if it has enough power to start the car. Your battery could have enough power to run radio and lights but not have enough cranking power to start the car especially if you are in a cold area. Low temperatures can cause your starter to freez and your battery to not crank the engine.

1994 Toyota Paseo has issues starting


GOOD EVENING, TWO THINGS WHY; AND EASY TO LOOK AND FIX. LOOK AT THE BATTERY COLD CRANKING AMPS. MAKE SURE ITS THE RIGHT ONE FOR TOYOTA PASEO. IS SHOULD BE 550CCA. IF THE BATTERY IS GOOD. HAVE THE ALTERNATOR CHECK. EITHER THE ALTERNATOR IS OVERCHARGING OR NOT CHARGING AT ALL.

High pitch noise when turn key to start / engine not turning over


Check your battery first. Cold weather does horrible things to car batteries... if it's more of a grinding sound I would say that your starter gear is bad. I believe they call it a ring gear? I had a similar problem with a kushman scooter that I use to deliver snowcones through the neighborhoods. It has teeth that need to engage and if those teeth have been grinded down it will have a hard time engaging....
