Check your battery cables.

Hi danny, i have tighten both terminal, still the same. Once the car started then no isue. It can bring u where we want but if we switch of than will face this. Some time 1 hour the longest i had is 6 hours. After that 1 time kick engine is on. No idea on this. help me.. Only experience can trouble shoot this.

I think you may need a new wiring harness. My wife's Camry did the same thing. They had the car for almost 2 months trying to figure it out. Also if you have a aftermarket alarm or remote start, that can cause the same issues as well.


Any warning lights on or flashing when the engine is running? When you have this no start...does it sound like the battery is even a clicking noise?
