Having problems with your 1989 Toyota Camry ?

89 CAMRY does not start - I turn the key & it clicks but doesn't turn over - when jumped by another car, it starts fine, but then may or may not start on it's own later. Tried putting it in Neutral & turning the key fast and pushing hard on the lever into park. Nothing works! Starter is original. Should I have the contacts changed or what?

Answers :

First clean the battery terminals really well and put them back on really tight. If it doesn't start, the battery is not charged enough. This may be due to a failing alternator. You can check the alternator with a voltmeter, if you have one. The voltage at the battery should be at least 14 volts with the engine running (no cables attached). If not, replace alternator. If you don't have a voltmeter, take the alternator off and have it tested at the parts store. \015\012

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Have the battery load tested. It may be on its last legs.
