Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

My 1998 Toyota corolla won't crank at all (not even a clicking). The lights, radio, and other accessories come on--no inidication that it's the battery. I had been having issues with the alarm going off and not being able to shut it off. I thought the lack of cranking was the immobilizer. However, now I have replaced the batteries to my key fob and can turn the alarm on and off, so I don't see why it would be now related to the alarm. Any ideas?

Hi I hope this helps I had the exact same problem with my 1998 toyota. I think its the ignition switch, or the ignition itself. That's what ended up being the problem with mine.

sounds to me that you have an igniton problem not a starter problem and or if you have or had an alarm system could be cause if u do give me feedback and i will explain but seems that your starter is fine from what u say but if you think in terms of the elemts to start a vehicle batery gives pwoer to ignition which sends to starter which gives spark etc i would check you ignition system something is causeing a short and not alowing starter to function

Check these two fuses. Fuse number 31 in fuse box location 4, if cigarette lighter, radio and clock. Else fuse number 5 in fuse box location 2, if only radio and clock and not cigarette lighter.

1998 toyota crolla battery hooked up wrong, car starts but no acc


I believe the reason the lights would still work is due to the fact a light bulb doesn't discriminate about polarity. It would be fair to say you have fried relays in your car. These should be located in something that looks like a fuse box in your engine bay. Some may also be in your fusebox. Hope this helps and good luck.
