Hello,

I have Camry 2004 it's not starting but the Engin Cranking . The Technician told me that the problem from the computer of the car . Is this true! By the way I faced the same issue 2 years ago and I replaced the computer! But agin it stopped.
What shall I do ?

- For your information ,


1- The fuel is there and the fuel pump is OK.
2-There is no spark!
3-Fuses and wires are Ok.


- why the technician believes it is the computer?

He said because the Car Diagnostic Scanner showed this message " Immobiliser system not connected. ( or not working . I forget what he said exactly!) ".

- Has this been regularly serviced?

Yes .

- When was the last service?

One week ago .On 13th of June 2017 I changed the engine oil and filter and the car stopped after one or two days!

- What were the symptoms prior to it not starting?

On 7th of June 2017 the car was switching off suddenly while moving in the road and when I was switching it on It was starting at the same moment [this happened many times in two days ].After that I took it to Garage they told me there was problem with the wires that goes to the back of the engine therefore they fixed the wires and the car was working for one week .Then I changed oil and filter of the Engine and washed the Engine .Finally it stopped after one or two days.

Thanks in advance .

I disconnected the neg battery terminal and it does the same thing

I would like to get the R-12 freon if at all possible as I need the air conditioning to work in my car. Thank you!

The other night while driving it I heard this horrible metal scraping sound and ever since then every time I start it it immediately dies I cannot keep it running.....

Brake fluid level is okay and fuse is intact.

seems not to engage at start or jerks and jerked at 65 mph

The key will unlock the steering but won't fully turn into ACC and will not start even when using the remote starter it will not turn in the ignition. tried both keys worked perfectly fine up to shutting the car off then trying to start it back up an hour later

Changed fuel pump everything worked well drove van from new Mexico to orange county California .Cant figure out what the problem is could anyone please let me know what the problem is THANX

Inquiring if third seats are removed will I get better gas mileage an easier ride

I am about 40 miles away from home. Is there any way I can get it started without going to mechanic. Don't know anything about fixing cars

Sometimes when I start my car, I drive a few seconds and all is normal, but then in a few more seconds the car will slow down a lot and very quickly and it feels as though the car is going to stop completely even though my foot is pressing down normally on the accelerator. In a few seconds' time the car picks up normal speed and I'm off as normal. I'm worried that this will happen in the middle of traffic as I'm leaving a parking lot and entering the road with cars coming up very fast behind me. This has happened in the last ~ 8 months on about 6 occasions.

I took the car to a mechanic running and left it for two weaks because they were going to weld a body part. Now it still but not crank .there is not fire going to the spark plug. I changed the coil. I tested the igniter it get me 11 volts

when I turn off car

I have used Throttle body cleaner and sprayed inside the throttle body and this seems to help for a small time but then it goes back to an uneven idle. I don't know if these problems correlate, but I am also experiencing a malfunction when switching from defrost to other settings. It will always stay on and the airflow will not switch to any other setting.

I replaced the torque mount(on top on pass. side) and the transmission mount(in front drivers side) are there more? When at idle the car shakes but when I bring the idle up it stops.

Starts leaking fluids after it heard up

I have several alarms since the tire pressure alarm stated ... check engine light, abs brake alarm, now brake alarm ... the abs and check engine light were intermittent at first ...

The brake pads are fine.

Air condition works sporadically

Power locks only work on 2 back doors

Check engine light: have three opinions. 1) Need new convertor 2) do nothing 3) sensors need repair.

Could a minor transmission leak prevent the car from accelerating?

The higher the fan the louder the whistle.
Turning off the air and the recirculation buttons didn't make a difference. But turning off the fan did.
It also "appeared" to sound as if it was on one side only but that may be my hearing.

It is NOT the battery!
All power indicators are Strong!?
With REPEATED TRIES.. Sometimes Many, sometimes few and SOMETIMES IT'LL TURN OVER THE FIRST TIME!
HOW MUCH AND HOW DIFFICULT TO REPLACE IGNITION SWITCH?

How much does it cost to replace transmission shift cable? Parts & labor
Please provide an estimate.

It doesn't have a remote, I just have to insert it into the car.

The column I installed was out of another tacoma. Would the security system have me locked out?

Bright to dim, now looks like they're dim all of the time. Any ideas?

My battery gage was running high so I changed my alternator and battery and unplugged my radio, but now it's either to high or so low it wont hold a charge!! Like it has a bad alternator but it test good and my battery is brand new.
