Does a 1996 Toyota Camry Have a crank sensor?

Asked by Jan 04, 2017 at 03:21 PM about the 1996 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1996 Toyota Camry will not start. When I turn the key on I get a spark out
of the plug wires. But  when I turn it over I get no spark. I have replaced the
ignitor and put a used distributor in it. after replacing the ignitor the car
cranked and ran fine for 1 week. now it will not crank at all. also i bought a
used ignitor.

What Engine in this Vehicle? "now it will not crank at all"...does that mean it sounds like the battery is dead...not even a "Click" from the Starter Motor? If this is a Ignition Distributor guess is the "crank" signal is coming from the pick up coils inside the Dist. Some of these Toyota Dist. could have 3(Three) signals inside. A wiring diagram for this Make/Model/Year AND Engine Code would definitely answer this question.


Yes, the 96 2.2 engine has a crank sensor. 1996-toyota-camry-2.html

We're is the crankshaft sensor located on the 1996 engine


Dayontal.....If the engine has Distributor Ignition....the Crank Sensor is inside that Dist. It is sometimes referred to as a Pick up Coil. What is the problem with your vehicle?
