This sounds like a worn ignition cylinder lock, first try another key and see if its a worn key, if that doesnt help then its the lock and you can try spraying a little wd 40 into the key hole and then putting the ket in and turning if a few times, you will also need to remove and insert key a dew times, maybe its just sticking tumblers in the lock but if not then the lock will need replacing. good day.

2001 Toyota sequioa won't engage 4wd


For your four wheel drive to engage, the front diff actuator has to go into 4wd and then sends confirmation to 4wd ecu which in turn engages ur transfer case (center lock) If frame was just replaced, i check the connector on top of your front diff and make sure its plugged in as this would be a definite cause. Let me know how you go.

My 2007 corolla won't start. When I turn the key in the ignition the starter makes a rapid clicking noise. I?ve tried putting the car in neutral and starting it that way, but had no luck. I?ve also tried...


1st check the main cable to the starter make sure it is clean and tight, disconnect battery first, after that there should be a small wire going to the starter jump that small connector to the main battery cable on the starter (IGNITION OFF) if it cranks you have a wiring or ignition switch problem if not Starter time just make sure you get a very good quality starter some cheap and even lifetime starters are so poorly made that even after you replace them you still have a problem only a bad noise coming from the new starter you just put in.

Check engine light on at 90500 miles 2003 toyota camry is this just a reminder light for scheduled maint.?


Your check engine light usually means there is an issue with your emissions control system. The last time mine came on, I found that my gas cap wasn't on tight enough. I turned it on tightly and the light went off after 30 miles or so. Start there.
If you've tightened the cap and the light is still on after 30 miles, you may have a bad gas cap OR maybe you just got some bad gas at your last fill-up. Try a few gallons of high-test and drive it a while. If nothing changes, a new gas cap is probably the next cheapest option. Good luck.

The only thing you can do is make sure the pressure in the tires is correct and run the recommened oil, keep the car in good running order.

2001 Toyota Camry will not start after ignition change.


The locksmith may not have tightened the "electrical" part onto the new ignition lock. The electrical part (the ignition "switch", if you will, is actually the thing that sends power to the starter, via the action of the key. If it is loose, you will get the exact problem that you are describing. Drop the lower dash panel on the driver side and examine it (the round white thing with several wires coming from it), hooked to the BACK of the ignition cylinder. Check it out & get back to me.

Replace the batteries in both remotes. If the battery is weak, the alarm does not set properly. Also, if the vehicle has a "glass breakage sensor" (under the instrument pod, driver side); it may need to be turned down slightly.

Toyota Prius 2001 Warning Light With Exclamation Mark on a car.


I had the same problem. I removed the relays from the fusebox under the bonnet/hood (top left side) and then replaced them. All working OK now. Sometimes I have had a problem when I start the car (especially after rainy day) the petrol engine immediately dies and I can only drive in electric. I have found that if I turn the ignition off and then restart it and immediately pump the accelerator it makes the engine run OK. Hope this helps.
