iond you here a whinning sound out of the realys and fan no 2 trying torun.... then it starts and runs very well have beg to
my camry csi 2004 model fails to start at times. You hear a whining sound out of the relays and fan no 2 trying to run then a click and the dashboard is lighted up and she starts...
First thing to check is the 12 volt battery. One would place a Digital Volt/Ohm Meter across the battery. Vehicle not running. The meter should read 12.3 to 12.6 volts. When the engine runs...the meter should read 13.5 to 14 volts. Next....one would load test the battery. A Charging System Test would be next on the list. The list of things goes on and on. You might be tempted to try a "jump start" when this issue ocurrs....be very careful. Lots of damage can happen if you jump start incorrectly. Get back to us with your result.
luvd.....did you ever find out what was causing this interesting problem with your car?
i changed the main engine relay... i have had no issues now for almost 3 weeks ... but i may have to replace my alternator bcoz its charge is low 12.7v in idle??
Ahhh...good news every once in a while is nice to hear. That 12.7v at IDLE is definitely NG...unless you have just about every electrical load on at the time. Let the engine idle not quite fully warmed up....NO AC wipers ...radio...etc. See what the Voltage is across the battery. Then....rev the Engine up/down a few times. What do you see n the voltmeter?
