Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Car shut down while while driving

I have a 1996 toyota corolla. I was drivng for about 15 to 20 minutes and then my car shut down. Everything shut off. ( Radio, lights, I couldn't accelerate and I couldn't even put my emergency light on) I've been having problems with my battery. The red cable is loose. When I try to start the car everything would shut off. And I already had the starter replaced. Usually when I tighten it, it starts fine for a while. The screw won't tightened anymore, so I don't know what to do with that, and Its never shut off on me while I'm driving so I don't know what the problem is. I know I need a tune up so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Stalls when driving

I am having the same issue with my sister 2001 corolla. I pinpoint it down to the EFI and/or Engine Main relay. After you drive it for 30 minutes it just shuts off. Try disconnecting the EFI fuse (15 A) for 30 seconds. This will reset the ECU which is going into Limp mode due to relay malfunction. Let me know if it works, i am going to change the relays on my sister's car tomorrow and recheck.

1999 toyota corolla. Car would not shut off went

I assume the car is a petrol! to stop a petrol engine the ignition needs to be shut down! if there is over run happening there are a few reasons for this. There is a problem with ignition mudule! spark plugs coked up! or the cylinders are coked.
If the car is a Diesel model then the reason for this happening is the shut off valve on the fuel pump is at fault.

Hope this helps.
