1995 Toyota Avalon Q&A

1995 Toyota Avalon Question: STARTING CAR

SOMETIMES WHEN I TRY TO START CAR IT CLICKS. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A WHILE. I CAN GO WEEKS WITHOUT IT DOING IT. WHAT CAN IT BE BESIDES THE STARTER. COULD IT BE A FUSE? -
Answer 1
It's not going to be a fuse. It may be the neutral safety switch, battery cable connections or another component in the starter circuit, like a relay. Problems that occur this infrequently are difficult to diagnose, so when it happens, try to document the conditions leading up to and during the time it wont start. -
Answer 2
Mine would click also until I replaced the battery. The old battery was shorting the alarm and the alarm wouldn't let the car start. -
Answer 3
My '96 Avalon was doing this as well and all it was was the battery cable. It was loose and when the car would be sitting for more than 5 hours; it would either not start or click like it was a dead battery. I replaced and tightened the terminals and it fixed the problem. Your problem isn't a fuse, it's either the battery, battery terminals, the starter, or the ignition. -
