Hi,


The way it's behaving, you've lost battery power completely. Same happened on my Toyota. The stock battery terminal clamps are thin and can corrode and crack. Sometimes just cycling the key can push through enough current to get it going again. so it's tough to diagnose.

Check and clean your battery terminals: Wear some rubber gloves and safety glasses. Remove the battery terminals - negative then positive - and neutralize any white corrosion with a paste of water and baking soda - scrub with an old toothbrush. Sand the battery terminals with and the inside of the cable clamps to clean more. Inspect the clamps for damage. You can get a new clamp (cheap) or a whole new battery cable (preferred) from a parts store.

Good luck!

Starter Fuse Keeps Blowing When I Try To Start My 2001 Camry


The starter has gone to ground. This is either a coincidence of age or the repair shop left something disconnected that has slapped around and grounded the starter or some of their other work has shifted around and done it. It could just be a coincidence. If it went to ground internally, it will need replacing. If something shifted and grounded it out, putting that something where it belongs and THEN replacing a fuse should fix it. Most shops reuse your starter on their new engine.

How to re start the radio, i have the code.


Turn key to on. The radio should say CODE. Key in the code with the radio numbered preset buttons. If you attempted to key in the code three times and failed, you will have to leave the radio on for at least an hour before it will let you try again.

I have a 2001 Sienna. I find in the morning the radio will sometimes lose it's presets. Also,the van starts fine but the odd time, when you go to start the engine, nothing happens when the key is turned. ...


If it starts without a jump, i would say it's the igntion switch that cuts off power to the radio at times. If it does need to be jumped, then replace the battery.

The battery died on my 2001 eclipse, now the radio only says ''off''?


This is the anti-theft device on your factory radio. When the battery died, the radio thought it had been removed from your car and went into anti-theft mode. When you turned the car back on, the radio should have read "CODE" on the display, at which point you need to enter the factory anti-theft code. After 3 failed attempts at entering the code, it will simply read "OFF" and the radio is locked.

At this point:
- find your factory anti-theft code - it should be in your owner's manual, or you can contact a dealer to retrieve it
- turn the key to the ACC position (radio and accessories on, but engine is off)
- turn on the radio so the display reads "OFF"
- let the car sit for 1 hour
- radio will turn off automatically and reset
- turn the radio on again, and it should read "CODE"
- enter the factory anti-theft code

Make sure you have the code before starting the procedure. To enter the code, use the radio preset buttons. For example, if your code is "4321", hit Preset #1 button four times, Preset #2 three times, Preset #3 two times, and Preset #4 one time. Then hit the "Tape" or "CD" button. Radio should now be unlocked.

My 96 camry doesnt turn on at all. when i turn the ignition key nothing happens. the radio doesnt turn on and the lights also. it cant be my battery cause i just recently changed it. please help.


Check the battery again, it can either be loose or corroded terminals, a dud battery, or something is draining the battery. The battery voltage should be between 11.5 and 14.4 volts. Then check your connections on the engine and in the fusebox

Once i get my codes for my 2033 acural tl, how


Code is in numbers. Look at preset buttons on the radio. They are numbered 1-6. Turn on car key, enter code #'s on preset buttons. This must be done 5 or 6 times in a row, till the radio unlocks. This is for anit-theft purposes.
