toyota corolla,1991 has power going to it but won't always start.does this sometimes for no reason...only reason i can think of is the ignition...any answers would be nice,thanks

The car will not start. When I turn on the ignition, it makes a cranking noise but the engine will not start. The battery seems to be fine since the lights and radio are working fine.

i purchased a 1992 toyota corolla ran fine ;went 2 az. returned new tuneup(wires, plugs,cap rotor therostat timing etc....)dr wont start

I put my key in the ignition and turn it and I can only get it about half-way to the "accessories" position. The "door open" warning then beeps. And I know my steering wheel is not locked.

1995 toyota corolla (canadian car)will not run in hot weather.why?

The engine light went and and off, but then the car was flooded and the light has been on since then. The car's motor oil, transmission oil, break fluid, spark plugs, air filter and computer were replaced. I added fuel injector cleaner twice. Then I changed the cables + rotor and the engine top seal (just to stop oil leak due to normal wear)I also cleaned the engine oil with a solvent and changed oil and filter after changing the seals. The car has about 150,000 miles and the engine runs smoothly even before these changes. The code P301 is still on, although I erased it by disconnecting the battery after all repairs. Do I need to replace the spark plugs again? (they look carbonized, but the tips are intact)(Maybe the motor needed further drying before replacing the spark plugs). Is there a sensor(s) that needs to be cleaned with an electronic spray cleaner to solve this code?

I'm trying to replace the cruise control switch, and I can only gently pull the airbag out a little. I'm afraid of it going off and breaking my neck! So can it go off without being connected to the battery?

I have a 2002 Toyota Corolla with over 190K on it.

After my last alignment, my parking/daytime running lights will NOT go off. I turn the car off, lights off, remove the key and they stay on and have ran my battery dead once.

This went on for about 2 weeks. Then one day after some fiddling: engaging/disengaging parking brake, turning lights on and off, jiggling the key. they went off and stayed off.

Fast forward 3 months... I park the car for a week long cruise in a "bumpy due to bibrations from passing vehicles" parking garage. I get back to the car to find the battery dead and am now back to disconnecting the battery.

Normal function was I turn everything off, remove the key and they would stay on for 2 seconds ONLY.

Now, I am disconnecting my battery every time I park my car.

Please help. Thanks so much!! Enjoy your day!!

When I put it in 2nd or 1st gear, (auto) it seemed to do better at higher rpm's. After 4-5 miles of city driving it seemed to get better.
