Check the data link connector fuse first if good then clean the connectors and also check for loose fitting pins on the scanner and the connector if they are good you must now continuity check those wires for breaks most times its just oxidation on the connector or the contacts need to be crimped a little to make it fit tighter but your fuse might be blown

I'm going to forward a good Youtube video that I think may help. There are common problems with these cars when they get old or have been repaired incorrectly. A short in the wiring harness at the left rear corner of the engine is common. Look just below the valve cover ( rear corner closest to the transmission). Also the Condenser (located on the drivers side as well). Next to the valve cover, transmission side. TEST: Unplug it and replace the fuse. If it doesn't blow then the condenser is bad. Lastly is Fuel pump relay, wiring to the fuel pump or fuel injectors. I don't know your skill level so please let me know if you need anything else or how you would like to proceed.

Your minivan may need a new ignition lock cylinder. Before going too far. Do you have more than one key? If the key/s don't work try spraying WD-40 or a similar penetrating oil into the key cylinder. Toyota uses Half Tumblers which can hang up when they get old or worn. This works most of the time and is worth trying. Be patient, this will take some time to work the fluid into the tumblers. After spraying into the cylinder take the ignition key and slide it in and out of the cylinder normal and listen for clicking. At first you may hear nothing. If that is the case then the tumblers are stuck. Continue to move the key in and out at normal speed 12 times and try to turn the key to RUN. If the key still doesn't work. Remove the key and spray more fluid. Like I said, Patients. You may need to repeat this procedure six or more times. At some point you should hear the tumbles clicking. Side note: Try no to go too crazy with the oil. If you put too much oil into lock cylinder it may leak out behind the dash and leak onto your carpet. Also when you remove the key it should be covered with a black oily film. This is normal and temporary. It is from years of use and is combination of old aluminum and metal dust. Place an old Tee shirt, towel or rags down onto the floor to protect the carpet and have a towel, napkin or rag available to wipe the key off as needed. Any questions please feel free to write back. Good luck.

Clearly the oil pump is capable of pumping when turned by hand, assuming the oil pick up or suction pipe has no defects and the oil pressure relief valve is sealing there should be oil pressure when the engine is started - that there isn't any pressure provokes the initial conclusion the pump isn't being driven by the engine.

I am not familiar with the engine design so I can't comment further.

There are two exhaust manifolds. The manifold closest to the firewall (or rear of engine) is where you want to look. Bank one is always the head that has Cylinder 1. Sensor one is always the O2 sensor before the CAT or inlet side of the CAT. Bank 1 Sensor 1 is also called The Upstream sensor. This sensor screws into the exhaust manifold, before the CAT.

Since there is very little fluid movement when you press in on the master cylinder and the fluid travels down, it can be very annoying to try to get a clutch system to bleed. The best luck I have ever had was to push in the clutch pedal with my right leg until it got tired and then switch to my left. When it was tired i'd switch back to my right. If you press the pedal all the way down about 100 times, it usually has enough pressure to operate.

Sounds like you have 2 problems, 1) you have a weak battery, 2) fuel starvation i.e choked fuel filter or faulty fuel pump, or both.

Was the van in for repairs recently? Have you looked around the engine compartment at all? There are several harnesses that wrap around the engine. It's possible one of them is soaked with oil (or not) and has shorted against the block. You don't want to waist too many fuses trying to find the short. I recommend a short finder tool to locate the source. If you don't have this tool a test light will work but it will take longer. Clamp the light's lead to battery power and connect the probing side to the fuse terminal (leading to the short). Wiggle each section of each harness until you see the test light flicker of go out. This should help put you in the right direct or the source. Let me know if this helped or if there is anything else. Good luck.

The On/Off switch and the 'Tuner' are two separate switches on a radio. Sounds like the 'tuner', ability to switch stations is functioning but the On/Off switch is broken. Either a radio repair shop can fix it or you probably can find one in a wrecking yard for $50.00 to $75.00 that will work and will less expensive then fixing you present radio. Bring the vehicle to a radio repair shop and have it checked out and then make the decision based on the costs.
