Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a manual 2001 Toyota Echo. We have replaced the battery and the alternator when it wouldn't start about a week ago. It ran well for about a week and then we took it for a drive the other day, and once we turned it off, we could not turn it back on. We were able to push start it, but decided not to try to drive it home as it wasn't running smoothly. I was hoping for a list of ideas to try to figure out what is wrong with it to be able to point the mechanics in a direction. I have a multimeter, and I will have a code reader in a few days. Any ideas?
Check starting system. as you said, you were be able to start when it push.
and if you notice when ignition is on the engine not cranking, starter is the sure problem.

I am no expert, but I just had a similar problem. The car would shake and buck when accelerating. It finally just died and would not start. After sitting for some time, the car would start and run a while, then do the same thing. I thought fuel pump. The dealer diagnosed distributor. After replacing, the car is running perfect. Something to think about. Good luck.

Fault codes explanation:
P0725 = Engine speed input circuit; CAN-BUS no communication with Engine Control Module (ECM); Invalid data received from ECM; damaged ECM.
P1850 = Data-Bus Powertrain missing message from ECM.
P1875 = Transmission Automatic Hall Effect sensor power circuit short to battery
I recommend you to access the ECM memory using VAG or similar diagnostic tool. But if you need to check a few things before scanning, I would recommend the following checks in your case:
- check the battery cables (clean and tight contacts)
- check engine ground cable (clean and tight contacts)
- check ECM (Engine Control Module) connectors and ground, the ECM is in plenum chamber under the windshield.
Having checked this wiring (most likely culprit), and made sure that contacts are clean tight, and connectors are fit, if the problem persists, (unlikely), you would need to get the codes using a VW equipment, to get the proper codes.
PS: there are some bulletins refering to ECM software updates on your model, so you should also check these out, if the problem points to ECM replacement eventually.

When your battery light comes on it is telling you that your ALTERNATOR is not charging your battery! So you need to replace the alternator.
You can verify that it is bad by taking the car or just the alternator to an auto parts store and having them test it for you for free.
