Toyota Avalon Starting Difficulties



  • ray80ray80 Posts: 1,652

    1999 Toyota Avalon won't start, no lights (inside or out when turned on), even with boost. Checked boost connection carefully. Left car several days with light on.

    Good chance boost won't add enough power to really dead battery (from leaving lights on). Battery charge would be a lot better (as long as it is in decent shape still)

  • Why can't I get any lights at all to come on? Is there a main fuse?

    If the battery went completely utterly dead it may be finished. It's a bit dangerous to try and jump start a battery that was completely depleted. You might check the acid level if possible and then put it on a slow charger----NOT a quick charge--it could blow up.

  • Hey guys I have a 2002 Avalon with 59k miles. Been a great car for the 20 months I've owned it, but like others in this thread I've recently had starting issues just outta the blue. All the gauges,lights are working but it won't start. Must be one of the same issues some of you all are having. Apparently putting the car in neutral somehow solves the problem. The first time it happened a month ago it started after I moved the car back a bit to try and jump it. Took it to Wal-Mart and got a new battery, been starting great till last night. Did the same thing, wouldn't do anything, just the gauges and everything we're working. Put the car in neutral, started right up. Hopefully it will stay a minor problem till I come up with the solution, thanks.
