I have a question. I own a 1997 Toyota Camry. the on off controls for the stereo is really messed up. It is really loose to. But you can be driving down the road and it will go from low volumn to high volume. If I hit a bump or turn a corner it will either get louder or softer. What can be done.

The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay) Just becaue its new, don't mean its good or fully charged.

If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared.

My belt did the same. The problem was, the tension pulley was damaged on the first belt change.
Hope this helps.

well could be two things. either your transmission has crapped out on you. or you have a shifter linkage issue. which means when the car is in park its not really in park. try this. move the shifter and see if the car moves in a different gear then what it says it is in . so if it moves in neutral it could be drive and reverse is neutral. if it does not reverse at all. time for a new trany is my guess.

There is a shift lock button located next to shifter. Look for a small cover and remove it. You may use flat head screw driver if you don't have shift lock tool. These will free you shifter. Try starting on neutral using break.

P1210 is not a Toyota code. Use different scanner to read the code. Some scanner don't work on specific cars. Use advance scanner with Toyota software to read and post the new code
I will be happy to help
Good luck

Sounds like a defective signal selector unit in the steering column just below the steeing wheel, should be checked and or replaced.
